Setup additional values for ELLIPSIS_MARKER for doctests

This Pytest plugin was generated with Cookiecutter along with @hackebrot’s Cookiecutter-pytest-plugin template.


Doctest has problems with matching default ELLIPSIS_MARKER at the begging of line and interprets them as line continuation characters and not as ellipsis for the output. The easy way was to use # doctest: +SKIP:

>>> u'Tanie dranie niesłychanie' # doctest: +SKIP

Without SKIP it would not work. But then the statement is not tested :(

This plugin cant extend ELLIPSIS_MARKER mathing a little without actually changing the default ELLIPSIS_MARKER value:

>>> u'Adios pomidory'


You can install “pytest-doctest-ellipsis-markers” via pip from PyPI:

$ pip install pytest-doctest-ellipsis-markers


By default the markers below will be treated as ELLIPSIS_MARKER, to change them add doctest_ellipsis_markers to your ini style configuration.

doctest_ellipsis_markers = [...] '...' "..."
