Which would look something like this: >>> view = zapi.getMultiAdapter((self.event1, self.request), >>> name="daterange_display") To register the view in python for a non-functional doctest something like this would work (maybe someone can correct me, because I've got IBrowserRequest twice in there but it does work): >>> component.provideAdapter(YourViewClass, [IYourInterface, IBrowserRequest], >>> \ ...

But all the same I do use a quick doctest to check that the view class behaves as expected before going on to testbrowser functional tests (which take longer to run). I save a bit of time then catching silly import and syntax errors and tuning the view class.
