I am new to Python and Flask, and have inherited some Python Flask code, and my task is to write tests for it - bad process I know but we are where we are :/
I have read lots of similar problems to mine but still none of them work in my situation.
The method I am trying to test is:
@ICEAPP.route('/login', methods=['GET', 'POST'])
session['ContactList'] = 
form = LoginForm()
if request.method == 'POST':
if request.form['username'] is not None:
When I call this method from my test, an exception is thrown on the last line:
if request.form['username'] is not None
does not exist. I don't know how to fix this as none of the examples I have found about passing form data into a request are the same situation as this.
My test is:
flask_app = create_app()
flask_app.config['WTF_CSRF_ENABLED'] = False
data = dict(username="admin")
with flask_app.test_client() as c:
with c.session_transaction() as session:
response = c.post('/login', data, follow_redirects=True,
Thank you in advance for any help!
What I have tried:
I have tried settin form["username" in the test method
I have also tried seeting up the EnvironBuilder with a
parameter, but I don't know how to pass this in the request.
