A Django plugin for pytest.

Project description

PyPI Version Supported Python versions Build Status Coverage

Welcome to pytest-django!

pytest-django allows you to test your Django project/applications with the pytest testing tool.

Install pytest-django

pip install pytest-django

Why would I use this instead of Django’s manage.py test command?

Running your test suite with pytest-django allows you to tap into the features that are already present in pytest. Here are some advantages:

  • Manage test dependencies with pytest fixtures.
  • Less boilerplate tests: no need to import unittest, create a subclass with methods. Write tests as regular functions.
  • Database re-use: no need to re-create the test database for every test run.
  • Run tests in multiple processes for increased speed (with the pytest-xdist plugin).
  • Make use of other pytest plugins.
  • Works with both worlds: Existing unittest-style TestCase’s still work without any modifications.

See the pytest documentation for more information on pytest itself.
