Changelog for Charlatan

0.4.7 (unreleased)

  • Nothing changed yet.

0.4.6 (2015-09-22)

  • Add support for epoch_now_in_ms (thanks to @chunyan)

0.4.5 (2015-05-29)

  • Add deep_inherit to allow nested inheritance of fields.

0.4.4 (2015-05-28)

  • Added !now_naive YAML file command to return naive datetime.

0.4.3 (2015-05-26)

  • Fixed anonymous list objects name resolution (thanks to @jvrsantacruz)

0.4.2 (2015-05-19)

  • Breaking change: the !now YAML command now returns timezone-aware datetime by default. You can change that behavior by changing charlatan.file_format.TIMEZONE_AWARE.
  • Fixed bug where uninstalling a sqlalchemy fixture would not commit the delete to the session.
  • Fixed bug where dict fixtures could not reference fields from other collections of dicts.

0.4.1 (2015-02-26)

  • Fixed bug where !rel, where id is a primary key generated by the database, would be None because of how fixtures are cached.
  • Removed as_list and as_dict feature. It was unnecessarily complex and would not play well with caching fixtures.

0.4.0 (2015-02-18)

  • Breaking change: get_builder and delete_builder arguments were added to charlatan.FixturesManager.
  • Breaking change: delete_instance, save_instance methods were deleted in favor of using builders (see below).
  • Breaking change: fields argument on charlatan.fixture.Fixture and fixtures collection class has been renamed overrides for consistency reasons.
  • Breaking change: attrs argument on charlatan.FixturesManager been renamed overrides for consistency reasons.
  • Breaking change: deleting fixtures will not return anything. It used to return the fixture or list of fixtures that were successfully deleted. It has been removed to apply the command query separation pattern. There are other ways to check which fixtures are installed, and hooks or builders can be used to customize deletion.
  • Breaking change: do_not_save and do_not_delete arguments have been removed from all functions, in favor of using builders.
  • The notion of charlatan.builder.Builder was added. This allows customizing how fixtures are instantiated and installed. A builder argument has been added to most method dealing with getting, installing or deleting fixtures. Sane defaults have been added in most places.
  • Improve documentation about using pytest with charlatan.
  • Fix bug preventing being able to load multiple fixtures file.

0.3.12 (2015-01-14)

  • Do not install the class’ fixtures variable on charlatan.FixturesManagerMixin initialization. This can lead to bad pattern where a huge list of fixtures is installed for each test, even though each test uses only a few. Also, it’s safer to be explicit about this behavior and let the user have this automatic installation. Note that you can easily reimplement this behavior by subclassing or installing those in the class setUp method.
