Matchers for unittest

Project description

Mate is an implementation of matchers for Python’s unittest module, which it largely tears out from testtools.

There are two purposes in doing so:

  • Extract portions suitable for submission upstream for inclusion in the unittest module and modify them so that they’re able to be integrated

  • Separate out details, matchers, and delayed assertions from testtools.TestCase so that they can be used with other TestCase subclasses

the second of which supports the first, and an ultimate goal is to contribute a shared implementation that can be used by both the standard library, testtools, and any other consumers.


The fundamental API and large portions of the code are taken with slight modifications from the aformentioned testtools package, which is MIT-licensed. Its license and authors are included in the license distributed with this package.
