Call pytest from a distutils script.

Project description

This Python module adds test to the commands in the distutils package. If your imports distutils_pytest, the user may run:

python test

This will call pytest to run your package’s test suite.

System requirements

  • Python 2.6, 2.7, or 3.1 and newer.
  • pytest

To be honest, the package might also work with older Python versions. But I didn’t try it.


This package uses the distutils Python standard library package and follows its conventions of packaging source distributions. See the documentation on Installing Python Modules for details or to customize the install process.

  1. Download the sources, unpack, and change into the source directory.

  2. Build:

    $ python build
  3. Install:

    $ python install

The last step might require admin privileges in order to write into the site-packages directory of your Python installation.
