A Pytest plugin to ignore certain marked tests by default
Some tests you just don't want to run
Hey, I get it. Sometimes we write tests, but we don't actually want to wait
for them to finish executing. Whether they're slow tests, they need some
dependencies you don't have, or they aren't related to the work you
do, there's some tests that just weren't meant to be run by devs in the age
of CI/CD platforms. That's where
pytest-explicit comes in.
This plugin allows developers to specify test markers that should be ignored
by default when running
pytest, but also quickly bypass this behaviour
for CI/CD. Just add a
--run-all flag to your pytest command for your test
pipeline, and this plugin won't skip anything!
If all you want to do is skip slow tests by default, you can stop reading
pytest-explicit will make any test marked
require you to pass the
--run-all) for them to take
up precious developer time.
Need more ignored tests? Just add the
explicit-only option to your
pytest config file, and
pytest-explicit will pick up the markers
specified and dynamically add
--run-<marker> CLI options to pytest. Here's
setup.cfg file below!
[tool:pytest] markers = slow: Marks a slow test memory_intensive: Marks a test that needs at least 16 gb RAM to run smoke: Marks a test that gives early alert to the health of the app testpaths = tests explicit-only = slow memory_intensive
With this configuration file, any test marked with either
memory_intensive won't run unless the appropriate CLI flags are passed!
Download the file for your platform. If you're not sure which to choose, learn more about installing packages.
