calls: low-level access to invocation recordsΒΆ

New in version 1.6.3.

Invocation over spy methods are available in the calls attribute. You may use that to get invocation argument values and perform complex assertions (i.e: check invocations arguments were specific instances). However, you should prefer called() matcher assertions over this. An example:

from doublex import Spy, assert_that, ANY_ARG, is_

class TheCollaborator(object):
    def method(self, *args, **kargs):

with Spy(TheCollaborator) as spy:

spy.method(1, 2, 3)
spy.method(key=2, val=5)

assert_that(spy.method.calls[0].args, is_((1, 2, 3)))
assert_that(spy.method.calls[1].kargs, is_(dict(key=2, val=5)))
assert_that(spy.method.calls[1].retval, is_(100))
