Description

VCRURLSession let’s you record your test suite’s HTTP requests and responses.
You can replay them during future test runs for fast, deterministic, accurate tests.

To use VCRURLSession you must configure your NSURLSession instances:

NSURLSession *session = [VCRURLSession prepareURLSession:[NSURLSession sharedSession]];

There is no swizzling involved!

Usage

Recording

- (void)record
{
    // Set up `protocolClasses` and return new session
    self.session = [VCRURLSession prepareURLSession:[NSURLSession sharedSession]];

    // Create new empty cassette to record HTTP requests on
    VCRURLSessionCassette *cassette = [[VCRURLSessionCassette alloc] init];

    // Start recording HTTP requests
    [VCRURLSession startRecordingOnCassette:cassette];

    // Make some HTTP request
    [[self.session dataTaskWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"https://www.github.com"]
                 completionHandler:^(NSData *data, NSURLResponse *response, NSError *error) {
                     [VCRURLSession stopRecording];
                     [cassette writeToFile:self.path];
                 }] resume];
}

Replaying

- (void)replay
{
    // Set up `protocolClasses` and return new session
    self.session = [VCRURLSession prepareURLSession:[NSURLSession sharedSession]];

    // Load cassette
    VCRURLSessionCassette *cassette = [[VCRURLSessionCassette alloc] initWithContentsOfFile:self.path];
    [VCRURLSession startReplayingWithCassette:cassette mode:VCRURLSessionReplayModeStrict];

    // Make some HTTP request
    [[self.session dataTaskWithURL:[NSURL URLWithString:@"https://www.github.com"]
                 completionHandler:^(NSData *data, NSURLResponse *response, NSError *error) {
                     NSHTTPURLResponse *httpResponse = (NSHTTPURLResponse *)response;
                     NSLog(@"%zd - %@", httpResponse.statusCode, httpResponse.URL);
                 }] resume];
}

Features

Replaying consumes responses

Let’s assume during recording there are several requests made to the same resource (GET /users).
When replaying them, it will consume them in the same order they were recorded.

GET /users
200 OK
[]

POST /users?name=John
201 Created
{"id": 1, "name": "John"}

GET /users
200 OK
[{"id": 1, "name": "John"}]

DELETE /users/1
204 No Content

GET /users
200 OK
[]

Store in gzip format

VCRURLSessionCassette *cassette = [[VCRURLSessionCassette alloc] init];
[cassette writeCompressedToFile:@"/tmp/cassette.json.gz"];

Return static responses

[VCRURLSession setStaticResponseHandler:^VCRURLSessionResponse *_Nullable(NSURLRequest *_Nonnull request) {
  NSString *contentType = request.allHTTPHeaderFields[@"Content-Type"];
  if ([contentType hasPrefix:@"image/"]) {
      NSData *imageData = UIImagePNGRepresentation([UIImage imageNamed:@"test_image"]);
      return [VCRURLSessionResponse responseWithURL:request.URL statusCode:200 headerFields:nil data:imageData error:nil];
  }
  return nil;
}];

Recording filter

VCRURLSessionCassette *cassette = [[VCRURLSessionCassette alloc] init];
cassette.recordFilter = ^BOOL(NSURLRequest *request) {
  NSString *contentType = request.allHTTPHeaderFields[@"Content-Type"];
  // Do not record images
  return [contentType hasPrefix:@"image/"];
};

Replaying speed

During recording phase the response time of each request is saved. Later the responses are returned in the same time. This can be changed by setting the replaySpeed property on the cassette.

VCRURLSessionCassette *cassette = [[VCRURLSessionCassette alloc] initWithContentsOfFile:self.path];
// If a request took 500ms, now it will only take 50ms
cassette.replaySpeed = 10.0f;
[VCRURLSession startReplayingWithCassette:cassette mode:VCRURLSessionReplayModeStrict];

Logging

This will enable logging recorded and replayed requests/responses. This only works for DEBUG builds.

[VCRURLSession setLogLevel:VCRURLSessionLogLevelInfo];
