weekly misc items: test exceptions, querying shopify returns, git hunking

with pytest.raises(<ExceptionName>):    assert your_function(some_arg)

2. for querying refunds in shopify, you can now query the Orders object using graphql using updated_at field! even though documentation does not list this field as a queryable field, they have an example query at bottom of page which led me to this.

orders(query:"updated_at:>=2020-06-03 created_at:<2020-06-03")

before realizing this, i would have queried tender transactions via REST api and then use the order id to query the full order details via GraphQL. this is because:

  • TenderTransaction is available at query root but does not provide order id to map back to an order id

sample REST endpoint would be:

tender_transactions.json?updated_at_min=2020-06-01 10:22:51 -0400'

be cautious of using timestamps to query orders in shopify. for example for given order with createdAt date of:


i tried the following and the bulk query still return the record:

today = '2020-06-03'today = '2020-06-04T04:30:55Z' # still shows 2020-06-04T04:27:55Z record

for query filter:


3. not a new finding, but i like using git hunking to select certain pieces of code for commit to keep my commit history clean when i have multiple unrelated changes made but they should not be included with same commit comment.

git add -p <your-file.py>
