'Test the stability of multithreaded code by adding random delays'

Project description


Jitterbug is a testing tool for fuzzing parallel code. It does this by randomly inserting sleep commands into various places in your code before each test run. This is a great way to test the stability of multithreaded or parallel code.

Jitterbug supports py.test tests in Python 3.8+.


Jitterbug is available on PyPI, so it can be installed via:

$ pip install jitterbug --user --upgrade

Run jitterbug specifying the location of your code and its unit tests:

$ python -m jitterbug --source <PATH TO SOURCE> --test <PATH TO UNIT TESTS>
