Fudge is a Python module for using fake objects to test real ones
Fudge is a Python module for using fake objects mocks, stubs, etc to test real ones.
This module is designed for two specific situations * Replace an object o Temporarily return a canned value for a method or allow a method to be called without affect. * Ensure an object is used correctly o Declare expectations about what methods should be called and what arguments should be sent.
Fudge was inspired by Mocha which is a simpler version of jMock. But unlike Mocha, Fudge does not automatically hijack real objects; you explicitly patch them in your test setup. And unlike jMock, Fudge is only as strict about expectations as you want it to be. If you just want to expect a method call without worrying about its arguments or the type of the arguments then you can.
