asynctest documentation

The package asynctest is built on top of the standard unittest module and cuts down boilerplate code when testing libraries for asyncio.

asynctest imports the standard unittest package, overrides some of its features and adds new ones. A test author can import asynctest in place of unittest safely.

It is divided in submodules, but they are all imported at the top level, so is equivalent to asynctest.TestCase.

Currently, asynctest targets the “selector” model. Hence, some features will not (yet) work with Windows’ proactor.

This documentation contains the reference of the classes and functions defined by asynctest, and an introduction guide.


Development of asynctest is on github: Martiusweb/asynctest. Patches, feature requests and bug reports are welcome.
