Developer Journal: 03 May 2020

After a refactor in the event output display became a bit hard to read and needs some rework. The biggest issue right now is getting the output from a server command returns a list of byte objects generated based on the stdout and stderr of the command.

So to test that our decoding works here is a simple test that currently fails:

def test_event_parses_byte_string_list(self):
    test_data = [b'', b'Fetching origin\n', b"Your branch is up to date"]
    expected_output = "Fetching origin\n Your branch is up to date"
    output = parse_events(test_data)
    self.assertEqual(expected_output, output)
