A pytest plugin helps developers to debug by providing useful commits history.
A pytest plugin that helps developers build successful test cases by providing them with GitHub commit information when their test cases fail.
A Python Plugin for Tracking Test Case Status
Everyone uses pytest. Or at least, everyone should. It's a super useful testing
program with an easy-to-use syntax. Pytest Blame is a pytest plugin that allows
pytest to do a quick check to Github to make sure the most recent commit is
passing your cases. If somebody broke your cases,
pytest-blame will display
all the commits pushed since the build broke as well as who pushed each commit.
This keeps team workflow transparent and allows for semi-realtime updates from
Github without having to open a browser. Since
pytest-blame can check up on
the online repository as frequently as every time you run your test suite, there
is less risk of a broken commit going unnoticed until a merge conflict occurs.
pytest-blame you will need to clone this github repository. Once
the repository has been cloned you will need to run the install script to update
your pytest configuration:
pipenv run python setup.py install
pytest-blame has been successfully installed you will need to generate
a Github User Token.
This can be found under
Settings in your github profile:
Developer Settings in the dashboard on the left and navigate to
Personal Access Tokens.
Finally, when generating the key for
pytest-blame make sure to include
Now that you have a user token, you will need to paste it into the location where
your terminal is sourced from. For example: Ubuntu uses
bash, so the default
terminal source for ubuntu is
You should put the following code in dot files to set up environment variable:
export GITHUB_OAUTH_TOKEN = "YOUR_TOKEN"
If you are using Windows, you can go to
Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Advanced -> Environment Variables to
set it up.
You can run pytest with the
--track option and you will see a report
containing GitHub information at the top of your pytest report.
pytest-blame will display the most recent commit that is passing CI
check, and all commits that did not pass CI check between the most
recent commit and the most recent passing commit.
pytest --track tests/ will invoke
pytest-blame, displaying the current
status of your working branch in the pytest header.
pytest-blame run will look something like this:
pytest --track tests/
The most recent commit is passing: https://github.com/inTestiGator/pytest-blame/commit/88ebf4107bc88d247a137d98ec9b45f6ae2658d3 Lancaster Wu : Delete index.md

You may also recieve messages telling you that
can not find passing commits when
all commits are currently failing or pending.
Failing Travis build
The master branch is failing Travis because one of our test cases requires Travis to have access to our test repository and currently and it doesn't, so it cannot perform the actual testing. This test case passes locally.
