pytest plugin to select tests based on attributes similar to the nose-attrib plugin
The pytest-attrib plugin extends py.test with the ability to select tests based on a criteria rather than just the filename or pytest.marks. For example, you might want to run only tests that need internet connectivity, or tests that are slow.
The pytest.mark plugin already provides a featrure to mark tests and run only the marked tests. This plugin also allows to run expressions on the attributes of the class, and does not require the pytest.mark decorator.
It offers features similar to the nose plugin nose-attrib.
Install the plugin with:
pip install pytest-attrib
To use the plugin, the -a CLI argument has been provided. Consider a project with the test file:
import unittest class MyTestCase(unittest.TestCase): def test_function(self): assert 1 == 1 class MySlowTestCase(unittest.TestCase): slow = True def test_slow_function(self): import time time.sleep(5) assert 1 == 1
Using pytest-attrib, only the slow tests can be run using:
$ py.test -a slow
Or run only the fast tests using:
$ py.test -a "not slow"
The expression given in the -a argument can be even more complex, for example:
$ py.test -a "slow and requires_internet" $ py.test -a "slow and not requires_internet"
It can also do conditional arguments like:
$ py.test -a "speed=='slow' and requires_internet"
