Introduction

🪄 Dive into the world of Student CRUD Apps and see how seamlessly Keploy integrated with Flask and MongoDB. Buckle up, it's gonna be a fun ride! 🎢

🛠️ Platform-Specific Requirements for Keploy

Below is a table summarizing the tools needed for both native and Docker installations of Keploy on MacOS, Windows, and Linux:

Operating SystemWithout DockerDocker InstallationPrerequisites
MacOS MacOSNot SupportedSupportedDocker Desktop version must be 4.25.2 or above
Windows WindowsSupportedSupported- Use WSL wsl --install
- Windows 10 version 2004 and higher (Build 19041 and higher) or Windows 11
Linux LinuxSupportedSupportedLinux kernel 5.15 or higher

On MacOS and Windows, additional tools are required for Keploy due to the lack of native eBPF support.

Quick Installation

Let's get started by setting up the Keploy alias with this command:

 curl --silent -O -L https://keploy.io/install.sh && source install.sh

You should see something like this:

Install all dependencies

pip install -r requirements.txt

Start the MongoDB server

sudo service mongod start

Setup Keploy

Let's get started by setting up the Keploy alias with this command:

curl --silent -O -L https://keploy.io/install.sh && source install.sh

Lights, Camera, Record! 🎥

To initiate the recording of API calls, execute this command in your terminal:

keploy record -c "python3 app.py"

Now, your app will start running, and you have to make some API calls to generate the test cases!!

  1. Make a POST request:
curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"title":"Task 1","description":"Important task"}' http://localhost:5000/api/tasks
  1. Make a GET request:
curl http://localhost:5000/api/tasks
  1. Make a PUT request:
curl -X PUT -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"title":"Task 1","description":"Random task"}' http://localhost:5000/api/tasks/12345
  1. Make a DELETE request:
curl -X DELETE http://localhost:5000/api/tasks/12345

And once you are done, you can stop the recording and give yourself a pat on the back! With that simple spell, you've conjured up a test case with a mock! Explore the keploy directory and you'll discover your handiwork in tests directory and mocks.yml.

Run the tests

Now, it's time to put things to the test 🧪

keploy test -c "python3 app.py" --delay 10

Now, you can also try different API calls, tweak the DB response in the mocks.yml, or fiddle with the request or response in test-x.yml. Run the tests again and see the magic unfold!

Check Test Coverage

We have a test-app.py where all the unit test cases has been written. Now using Keploy, we can check it's code coverage!! Now to run your unit tests with Keploy, you can run the command given below:

python3 -m coverage run -p --data-file=.coverage.unit -m pytest -s test_keploy.py test_app.py

To combine the coverage from the unit tests, and Keploy's API tests we can use the command below:

python3 -m coverage combine

Finally, to generate the coverage report for the test run, you can run:

python3 -m coverage report

and if you want the coverage in an html file, you can run:

python3 -m coverage html

Wrapping it up 🎉

Congrats on the journey so far! You've seen Keploy's power, flexed your coding muscles, and had a bit of fun too! Now, go out there and keep exploring, innovating, and creating! Remember, with the right tools and a sprinkle of fun, anything's possible.😊🚀

Happy coding! ✨👩‍💻👨‍💻✨
