Well, I have something that appears to work.... but is messy/fragile.
Firstly, I installed the latest wsgi_intercept and mechanize. The
install of mechanize also installs clientform v0.2,7.
I then moved the mechanize directory and ClientForm.py from
twill/other_packages to a safe place.
After this some twill tests ran ok but nothing form related worked, so I
replaced ClientForm.py in the ClientForm-0.2.7-py2.5.egg directory with
the older version from twill and the forms worked again.
However, nothing https related was working yet (i.e. the original
problem). Editing twill/_browser,py to add support for https, as shown
below, appears to work in limited testing:
def http_open(self, req):
return self.do_open(wsgi_intercept.WSGI_HTTPConnection, req)
https_open = http_open
A patched version of the mechanize browser class. Currently
installs the WSGI intercept handler & fixes a problem with
mechanize/urllib2 Basic Authentication.
def __init__(self, *args, **kwargs):
# install WSGI intercept handler.
self.handler_classes['http'] = build_http_handler()
self.handler_classes['https'] = build_http_handler()
Of course, being new to the internals of twill this may not be complete,
but so far so good.... by some definition of good :-)
