Morelia is a Python Behavior Driven Development (BDD) library.

BDD is an agile software development process that encourages collaboration between developers, QA and business participants.

Test scenarios written in natural language make BDD foundation. They are comprehensible for non-technical participants who wrote them and unambiguous for developers and QA.

Morelia makes it easy for developers to integrate BDD into their existing unittest frameworks. It is easy to run under nose, pytest, tox, trial or integrate with django, flask or any other python framework because no special code have to be written.

You as developer are in charge of how tests are organized. No need to fit into rigid rules forced by some other BDD frameworks.

Installation

pip install morelia

Quick usage guide

Write a feature description:

# calculator.feature

Feature: Addition
    In order to avoid silly mistakes
    As a math idiot
    I want to be told the sum of two numbers

Scenario: Add two numbers
    Given I have powered calculator on
    When I enter "50" into the calculator
    And I enter "70" into the calculator
    And I press add
    Then the result should be "120" on the screen

Create standard Python’s unittest and hook Morelia into it:

# test_acceptance.py

import unittest

from morelia import verify


class CalculatorTestCase(unittest.TestCase):

    def test_addition(self):
        """ Addition feature """
        verify('calculator.feature', self)

Run test with your favourite runner: unittest, nose, py.test, trial. You name it!

$ python -m unittest -v test_acceptance  # or
$ pytest test_acceptance.py  # or
$ nosetests -v test_acceptance.py  # or
$ trial test_acceptance.py  # or
$ # django/pyramid/flask/(place for your favourite test runner)

And you’ll see which steps are missing:

Now implement steps with standard TestCases that you are familiar:

# test_acceptance.py

import unittest

from morelia import verify


class CalculatorTestCase(unittest.TestCase):

    def test_addition(self):
        """ Addition feature """
        verify('calculator.feature', self)

    def step_I_have_powered_calculator_on(self):
        r'I have powered calculator on'
        self.stack = []

    def step_I_enter_a_number_into_the_calculator(self, number):
        r'I enter "(\d+)" into the calculator'  # match by regexp
        self.stack.append(int(number))

    def step_I_press_add(self):  # matched by method name
        self.result = sum(self.stack)

    def step_the_result_should_be_on_the_screen(self, number):
        r'the result should be "{number}" on the screen'  # match by format-like string
        self.assertEqual(int(number), self.result)

And run it again:

$ python -m unittest test_acceptance

Feature: Addition
    In order to avoid silly mistakes
    As a math idiot
    I want to be told the sum of two numbers
Scenario: Add two numbers
    Given I have powered calculator on                       # pass  0.000s
    When I enter "50" into the calculator                    # pass  0.000s
    And I enter "70" into the calculator                     # pass  0.000s
    And I press add                                          # pass  0.001s
    Then the result should be "120" on the screen            # pass  0.001s

OK

Note that Morelia does not waste anyone’s time inventing a new testing back-end just to add a layer of literacy over our testage. Steps are miniature TestCases. Your onsite customer need never know, and your unit tests and customer tests can share their support methods. The same one test button can run all TDD and BDD tests.

Look at example directory for a little more enhanced example and read full documentation for more advanced topics.
