Better testing with expecter and pytest.

Project description


A pytest plugin for garybernhardt/expecter that hides the internal stacktrace.

Build Status PyPI Version


This lets you write tests (optionally using ropez/pytest-describe) like this:

def describe_foobar():

    def it_can_pass(expect):
        expect(2 + 3) == 5

    def it_can_fail(expect):
        expect(2 + 3) == 6

and get output like this:

=================================== FAILURES ===================================
_________________________ describe_foobar.it_can_fail __________________________

    def it_can_fail(expect):
>       expect(2 + 3) == 6
E       AssertionError: Expected 6 but got 5 AssertionError
====================== 1 failed, 1 passed in 2.67 seconds ======================


pip install pytest-expecter
