Issue #230 new

Use built-in mock on python 3.4

created an issue

mako uses the mock package. However, mock is not compatible with python 3.4. Python 3.4 has its own build-in mock tool instead. It would be great if mako used the built-in mock tool if it is available.

    not understanding, we already do this: https://bitbucket.org/zzzeek/mako/src/285bc818a50ccc0f9549630f7c4f4c250585c3e7/test/init.py?at=master#cl-65:

    if py33:
        from unittest import mock
        import mock

    tests run fine on 3.4:

    $ python3.4 -m pytest test

    mock's unit tests fail for python 3.4. At least some linux distros are carrying patches to make it work, but the idea is that this is a stop-gap measure until upstream projects stop depending on it.

    I dont know python's testing procedures enough to know why the tests in site-packages/ ever get actually run, but feel free to send a short PR for this issue and I can merge it, thanks.
