Interlude for Doctests provides an Interactive Console.

Project description

Provides an interactive shell aka console inside your doctest case.

The console looks exact like in a doctest-case and you can copy and paste code from the shell into your doctest. It feels as you are in the test case itself. Its not pdb, it’s a python shell.

>>> interact( locals() )

To make your testrunner interlude aware following is needed:

  1. import interlude

  2. suite = DocFileSuite( …, globs=dict(interact=interlude.interact), …)
