avatar Bite 247. Mocking a standard library function

Note this is a Test Bite and uses Python 3.7 and MutPy 0.6.1

In this Bite you will mock out a function of the standard library, more specifically random.sample.

We wrote a small generator that produces hex colors. We also provided a fixture to initialize the generator so you can just call next(gen) to get the next hex value.

Use unittest.mock's patch to mock out the call to sample. It might be a bit tricky, but once you get this one down you possess a valuable testing skill!

Have fun and keep calm and test with pytest!
