Run doctests in individual IPython Notebook cells
Lets you run the doctests of a single class or function at a time. Useful for tutorials based on the IPython Notebook, using doctests for student feeback.
Install with pip install ipython_doctester, or navigate to this directory and run:
python setup.py install
Run ipython notebook, then start your notebook with this import:
In : from ipython_doctester import test
In each subsequent cell, set up objects with their doctests, and with absent (or flawed) function bodies, and decorate them with @test:
In : @test def square(x): ''' >>> f(2) 4 '''
Tests will run on each cell as it is executed.
If you want to track students’ progress through a notebook in a classroom setting, you can; see http://ipython-docent.appspot.com/ for instructions.
If no doctests are found in the function’s docstring, the program will look for a file ./docstrings/<function name>.txt, append that to the function’s docstring, and check for doctests again. This can be used to keep the presence of the docstrings from confusing students.
