HitchRunPy

HitchRunPy is a tool to run, test and profile snippets of python code.

HitchRunPy was developed to run executable specifications using HitchStory that define Python APIs.

As such it can be used with HitchStory to build effective replacements for unit tests and integration tests where the ‘spec’ is a python API.

HitchRunPy is used to run the executable specifications for all libraries on HitchDev.

Example

from hitchrunpy import ExamplePythonCode

ExamplePythonCode(
    '/path/to/bin/python',
    '/path/to/working_directory',
).with_code((
    'with open("examplefile", "w") as handle:'
    '     handle.write("exampletext")'
)).run()

Install

Hitchstory is designed to be used mainly with hitchkey and hitchstory. [ TODO set up ]

However, hitchrunpy can also be installed directly from pypi using pip.

$ pip install hitchstory
