CI Check Status CI Tests Status Documentation Status

This pytest plugin allows for the doctesting of C extension modules for Python, specifically created through cython.


You can install "pytest-cython" via pip from PyPI:

pip install pytest-cython


Basic usage:

pytest --doctest-cython

You can also run the doctests for a single .pyx file as such:

pytest --doctest-cython path/to/module.pyx


It is assumed that the C extension modules have been build in place before running py.test and there is a matching Cython .pyx file


If you encounter any problems, please file an issue along with a detailed description.


This pytest plugin was generated with cookiecutter along with @hackebrot's cookiecutter-pytest-plugin and @ionelmc's cookiecutter-pylibrary templates.
