I have a Django custom command that can return non-zero exit codes. I’d like to test this command, but the call to
sys.exit(1) exits the test runner.
Is there a “proper” way to assign the exit code in a custom Django command?
My code currently looks like this:
# Exit with the appropriate return code if len(result.failures) > 0 or len(result.errors) > 0: sys.exit(1)
I chose to mock the call to
sys.exit() in the tests to prevent it to exit the test runner:
from mock import patch with patch('sys.exit') as exit_mocked: call_command(...) exit_mocked.assert_called_with(1)
