easily load test data from files


This was created to save the tediousness of working with sets of data for testing inside the test files.


pip install pytest-filedata


Add this to your file:

import pytest_filedata


def pytest_generate_tests(metafunc):
    for fixture in metafunc.fixturenames:
        if fixture.startswith('data_'):
            data = pytest_filedata.get_data(fixture)
            metafunc.parametrize(fixture, list(data.values()), ids=list(data.keys()))
