2.5.24.2. TestReactorMixin

class buildbot.test.reactor.TestReactorMixin

The class TestReactorMixin is used to create a fake twisted.internet.reactor in tests. This allows to mock the flow of time in tests. The fake reactor becomes available as self.reactor in the test case that mixes in TestReactorMixin.

Call self.reactor.advance(seconds) to advance the mocked time by the specified number of seconds.

Call self.reactor.pump(seconds_list) to advance the mocked time multiple times as if by calling advance.

For more information see the documentation of twisted.internet.task.Clock.

setup_test_reactor(use_asyncio=False)

:param bool use_asyncio Whether to enable asyncio integration.

Call this function in the setUp() of the test case to setup fake reactor.
