automatically check condition and log all the checks

Project Description

Please use pytest-oot plug-in, which provides same functions and much more.

This pytest plugin is very simple, which is for users who use test_steps in py.test framework. Use this plugin, the function detection mechanism is using pytest runtest_setup to do it, instead of using the original mechanism, which requires users know more about the auto-function-detection while writing scripts originally. Now, it will be all set, while taken care of by this plugin.

Install pytest-autochecklog

pip install pytest-autochecklog


Given the following tests (suppose it is in file /test_steps_example/

from test_steps import *
import random
def test_example():
    ok("just pass the check and log it")
    #fail("Just fail the check and log it")
    ok(3+2 == 5, "pass if expr else fail")
    #eq("Shanghai", "Beijing", "Shanghai not equal to Beijing")
    eq(4+5, 9)
    ne("Shanghai", "Beijing", "Pass, Shanghai not equal to Beijing")
    #'Shanghai City' contains 'Country', the second parameter could be regex
    check(" 'Shanghai City' =~ 'Country' ", warning=True)
    unmatch("Shanghai City", "Country", "Pass, not contains, regex can be used too")
    check('random.uniform(1,20) > 15', repeat=5)

After installed the plugin for pytest, when you run pytest with the above test case, then, you will get the following log in logfile /tmp/test_yyyymmdd_hhmm.log by default like:

Btw, you can change the log file and format by using test_steps functions.
