            As I understand it, coverage is about reporting how much of your codebase is tested, not which tests to run. What you're doing is excluding things from a report, not stopping the data for the report being created.

            What you should do is skip tests if you know they're going to fail (due to external configuration). Fortunately pytest provides for this with the skipif decorator.

            I would create a function in tests/conftest.py which skips tests if the VPN is active. Something like:

            HTTP HEAD for custom header vs partial object fetching
            Asked 2021-Apr-15 at 08:45

            I wish to perform a conditional GET request for a document depending on the value for a particular attribute of that document. I came across two ways that would help me do that.

            1. Include this attribute as a custom header for the GET method and use the HEAD request to get the headers & determine whether to actually make the GET request.

            2. Use partial object fetching for the GET request using fields mask in flask-restplus/flask-restx.

            I am not sure if either of the approaches is the best way to solve the problem at hand.

            Is using custom headers a common practice? Are there any red flags that come with it? (I came across one so answer that mentioned that some firewalls filter out custom headers)

            Does partial object fetching actually have any tangible benefits? How do the operations differ behind the scenes?



            Answered 2021-Apr-15 at 08:45

            Recently found out about an HTTP concept called conditional requests. It is similar in idea to the first approach I had in mind, only that it's even better. The headers are standard ones and the error handling is taken care of.

            Dropdown menu in Swagger with Flask (restx)

            I am building my first API with the flask-restx lib. I use it to generate a Swagger documentation of my API with annotations. I currently have some fields for a post method but they all accept input as strings by default and you have to type their values in Swagger ‘Try it out’. How do I make them dropdown lists so that a user chooses an input parameter from it?

            Instead of using @ns.param('param_1', 'param1'), you can use @ns.expect(parser) or @ns.expect(parser, validate=True) for enabling payload validation and give choices in parser.add_argument

            How to generate OpenAPI v3 specification from Go source code?
            Asked 2021-Feb-13 at 09:54

            Is there a way to generate OpenAPI v3 specification from go source code? Let's say I have a go API like the one below and I'd like to generate the OpenAPI specification (yaml file) from it. Something similar to Python's Flask RESTX. I know there are tools that generate go source code from the specs, however, I'd like to do it the other way around.



            Answered 2021-Feb-13 at 09:54

            You can employ github.com/swaggest/rest to build a self-documenting HTTP REST API. This library establishes a convention to declare handlers in a way that can be used to reflect documentation and schema and maintain a single source of truth about it.

            In my personal opinion code first approach has advantages comparing to spec first approach. It can lower the entry bar by not requiring to be an expert in spec language syntax. And it may help to come up with a spec that is well balanced with implementation details.

            With code first approach it is not necessary to implement a full service to get the spec. You only need to define the structures and interfaces and may postpone actual logic implementation.

            Please check a brief usage example.

            Error while importing formData from swagger json to AWS API Gateway
            Asked 2020-Oct-21 at 09:10

            I am using flask-restx to build an app with a swagger UI and I trying to upload this swagger file as a documentation part in AWS API Gateway. Through this swagger UI, I am enabling the user to upload a CSV file for further data processing.

            I have the following swagger json:



            Answered 2020-Oct-21 at 09:10

            The problem is that AWS API Gateway expects swagger/OpenAPI version 3, and your file is version 2. If you only want a way to host swagger UI for documentation/collaboration purposes, take a look at SwaggerHub https://swagger.io/tools/swaggerhub/.

            But, if you really have to use AWS API Gateway, then you need to get spec in OpenAPI-3 format. Since the API is rather small, I'd suggest preparing OpenAPI-3 spec yourself (rather than generating it) and testing it locally via swagger UI.

            Having Trouble Making a RESTful API with Flask-RestX: "No operations defined in spec!" and "404"s
            Asked 2020-Sep-10 at 15:56

            In summary, I have been following the flask restx tutorials to make an api, however none of my endpoints appear on the swagger page ("No operations defined in spec!") and I just get 404 whenever I call them

            I'm using python 3.8.3 for reference.

            A cut down example of what I'm doing is as follows.

            Answered 2020-Sep-10 at 15:56

            I made a few mistakes in my code and test:

            1. Registering api before declaring the routes.
            2. Making a wierd assumption about how the arguments would be passed to the post method.
            3. Using a model instead of request parser in the expect decorator
            4. Calling the endpoints in my testing with an erroneous api/ prefix.
            In Full

            I believe it's because I registered the namespace on the api before declaring any routes.

            My understanding is when the api is registered on the app, the swagger documentation and routes on the app are setup at that point. Thus any routes defined on the api after this are not recognised. I think this because when I declared the namespace in the views/test.py file (also the model to avoid circular referencing between this file and views/__init__.py), the swagger documentation had the routes defined and my tests worked (after I corrected them).

            There were some more mistakes in my app and my tests, which were

            Further Mistake 1

            In my app, in the views/test.py file, I made a silly assumption that a variable would be made of the expected parameter (that I would just magically have greeting as some non-local variable). Looking at the documentation, I learnt about the RequestParser, and that I needed to declare one like so
