- Fix nasty bug where objects that had neither
__slots__would always be considered equal by
6.0.1 (17 April 2018)¶
6.0.0 (27 March 2018)¶
compare()will now handle objects that do not natively support equality or inequality and will treat these objects as equal if they are of the same type and have the same attributes as found using
__slots__. This is a change in behaviour which, while it could conceivably cause tests that are currently failing to pass, should not cause any currently passing tests to start failing.
- Add support for writing to the
- The default behaviour of
MockPopencan now be controlled by providing a callable.
LogCapture.actual()is now part of the documented public interface.
LogCapture.check_present()to help with assertions about a sub-set of messages logged along with those that are logged in a non-deterministic order.
Comparisonnow supports objects with
ShouldAssertas a simpler tool for testing test helpers.
- Changed the internals of the various decorators testfixtures provides such that they can
be used in conjunction with
unittest.mock.patch()on the same test method or function.
- Changed the internals of
Comparisonto make use of
compare()and so provide nested comparisons with better feedback. This finally allows
ShouldRaiseto deal with Django’s
- Added handling of self-referential structures to
compare()by treating all but the first occurence as equal. Another change needed to support Django’s insane

test_datenow accepts a
dateinstance during instantiation to set the initial value.
- Relax the restriction on adding, setting or instantiating
test_datetimewith tzinfo such that if the tzinfo matches the one configured, then it’s okay to add. This means that you can now instantiate a

2.3.2 (10 November 2011)¶
2.3.1 (8 November 2011)¶
2.3.0 (11 October 2011)¶
TestComponentsinstances will now warn if the process they are created in exits without them being cleaned up. Instances of these classes should be cleaned up at the end of each test and these warnings serve to point to a cause for possible mysterious failures elsewhere.
2.2.0 (4 October 2011)¶
2.1.0 (29 September 2011)¶
- Add a strict mode to
compare(). When used, it ensures that the values compared are not only equal but also of the same type. This mode is not used by default, and the default mode restores the more commonly useful functionality where values of similar types but that aren’t equal give useful feedback about differences.
2.0.1 (23 September 2011)¶
- add back functionality to allow comparison of generators with non-generators.
2.0.0 (23 September 2011)¶
compare()now uses a registry of comparers that can be modified either by passing a registry option to
compare()or, globally, using the

test_timenow accept instances of the appropriate type as an alternative to just passing in the parameters to create the instance.
- Refactored the monolithic
__init__.pyinto modules for each type of functionality.
1.12.0 (16 August 2011)¶
- Add a
OutputCaptureso that more complex assertion can be made about the output that has been captured.
OutputCapturecontext managers can now be temporarily disabled using their
- Logging can now be captured only when it exceeds a specified logging level.
- The handling of timezones has been reworked in both
test_time(). This is not backwards compatible but is much more useful and correct.
1.11.3 (3 August 2011)¶
1.11.2 (28 July 2011)¶
- Fix for 1.10 and 1.11 releases that didn’t include non-.py files as a result of the move from subversion to git.

- allow the date class returned by the
tdatetime.date()method to be configured.
- added the
- added the
- added options to ignore trailing whitespace and blank lines when
comparing multi-line strings with
- fixed bugs in the handling of some exception types when using
wrap()to correctly set __name__, along with some other attributes, which should help when using the decorators with certain testing frameworks.
1.7.0 (20 January 2010)¶
- fixed a bug where the @replace decorator passed a classmethod rather than the replacment to the decorated callable when replacing a classmethod
- added set method to test_date, test_datetime and test_time to allow setting the parameters for the next instance to be returned.
- added delta and delta_type parameters to test_date,test_datetime and test_time to control the intervals between returned instances.
1.6.2 (23 September 2009)¶
- changed Comparison to use __eq__ and __ne__ instead of the deprecated __cmp__
- documented that order matters when using Comparisons with objects that implement __eq__ themselves, such as instances of Django models.
1.6.1 (06 September 2009)¶
- @replace and Replacer.replace can now replace attributes that may not be present, provided the strict parameter is passed as False.

- should_raise now supports methods other than __call__
1.5.2 (14 Dec 2008)¶
- added makedir and check_dir methods to TempDirectory and added support for sub directories to read and write

1.5.0 (12 Dec 2008)¶
- added handy read and write methods to TempDirectory for creating and reading files in the temporary directory
- added support for rich comparison of objects that don’t support vars()
