Pytest Plugin for BDD

Project description

Eucalyptus - BDD plugin for Pytest

A nice fork of Aloe. Migrated from Nose to Pytest.

pypi pypi-versions builds docs coverage Quality Gate Status

pytest-eucalyptus has been built to feature the best of both worlds:

  • Aloe which implements great infrastructure and uses the original Gherkin parser.
  • pytest-bdd does not require a separate runner and benefits from the power and flexibility of Pytest.

Quick Start

  1. Create new module and add empty

  2. Install Pytest and Eucalyptus:

    pip install pytest pytest-eucalyptus
  3. Let's assume we are testing the following implementation of

        def add(*numbers):
            return sum(numbers)
  4. Write your first feature tests/calculator.feature:

        Feature: Add up numbers
        As a mathematically challenged user
        I want to add numbers
        So that I know the total
        Scenario: Add two numbers
            Given I have entered 50 into the calculator
            And I have entered 30 into the calculator
            When I press add
            Then the result should be 80 on the screen
  5. Add the definitions in tests/

        from calculator import add
        from pytest_eucalyptus import before, step, world
        def clear(*args):
            """Reset the calculator state before each scenario."""
            world.numbers = []
            world.result = 0
        @step(r'I have entered (\d+) into the calculator')
        def enter_number(self, number):
        @step(r'I press add')
        def press_add(self):
            world.result = add(*world.numbers)
        @step(r'The result should be (\d+) on the screen')
        def assert_result(self, result):
            assert world.result == float(result)
  6. Run the code
