#22490 new Bug

get_object within a syndication Feed has no tests

Reported by: danielsamuels Owned by: anonymous
Component: contrib.syndication Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords:
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: no Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


Within django.tests.syndication_tests.feeds there is a class named ComplexFeed which extends views.Feed and overrides the get_object() method, however this class is not used in any tests. There is a reference to the class in the related, but again this is unused. This means that there is currently no test code written for the get_object() method in django.contrib.syndication.views.Feed and no examples for developers to follow when writing their own tests.

Pull request:

The class was previously used to test complex feed structures implemented in the function-based syndication - which now is covered by url dispatching.

Fixed #22490 -- removed obsolete ComplexFeed class from syndication_tests

It was previously used in a test that was deprecated and then removed, this cruft can be removed now.

With this change, does this mean that functions such as get_object have no tests at all? This isn't the outcome I was expecting from this ticket.

Yes, I cannot find a test for this function. The default returns None, but there should probably be one that returns an actual object.
