py.test plugin that activates the fault handler module for tests (dummy package)

Project description

Plugin for pytest that automatically enables the faulthandler module during tests.

Inspired by the nose faulthandler plugin.

This plugin is now part of pytest core since pytest 5.0, so users should not install this plugin together with that pytest version.

Version 2.0.0 of this package is a dummy package for pytest 5.0 compatibility.


The plugin is always active by default, but you can disable it by passing --no-faulthandler to py.test.


  • --faulthandler-timeout=TIMEOUT: Dump the traceback of all threads if a test takes more than TIMEOUT seconds to finish.


  • Python 2.7+, Python 3.4+

  • pytest

  • faulthandler (Python 2.7)


Install using pip:

$ pip install pytest-faulthandler
