Testing with InjectorΒΆ

When you use unit test framework such as unittest2 or nose you can also profit from injector. However, manually creating injectors and test classes can be quite annoying. There is, however, with_injector method decorator which has parameters just as Injector construtor and installes configured injector into class instance on the time of method call:

import unittest
from injector import Module, with_injector, inject

class UsernameModule(Module):
    def configure(self, binder):
        binder.bind(str, 'Maria')

class TestSomethingClass(unittest.TestCase):
    @with_injector(UsernameModule())
    def setUp(self):
        pass

    @inject(username=str)
    def test_username(self, username):
        self.assertEqual(username, 'Maria')

Each method call re-initializes Injector - if you want to you can also put with_injector() decorator on class constructor.

After such call all inject()-decorated methods will work just as you’d expect them to work.
