Integration of zope.testrunner-style test layers into the py.test framework

Project description

The gocept.pytestlayer distribution

Integration of zope.testrunner-style test layers into the py.test framework

This package is compatible with Python version 2.7.

Quick start

  • Make sure your test files follow the conventions of py.test’s test discovery

    In particular, a file named tests.py will not be recognised.

  • Add a buildout section to create the py.test runner:

    [buildout]
    parts += pytest
    
    [pytest]
    recipe = zc.recipe.egg
    eggs = gocept.pytestlayer
           pytest
           <YOUR PACKAGE HERE>
    
  • Write a conftest.py creating fixtures for your layers:

    from gocept.pytestlayer import fixture
    
    globals().update(fixture.create(
        "mypackage.testing.Layer1",
        "mypackage.testing.Layer2",
        ))
    

    As long as there are any fixtures missing, the plugin will tell you about layers that need to be included. Calling py.test -x will make this process faster (as it makes the runner stop at the first error).

    Make sure to put the conftest.py inside a directory that is a parent of all directories that contain tests that use layers, so it is found by pytest whenever needed.
