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:
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.
