Project description


Pytest plugin to annotate failed tests with a workflow command for GitHub Actions


Just install and run pytest with this plugin in your workflow. For example,

name: test


    runs-on: ubuntu-latest

    - uses: actions/checkout@v3

    - uses: actions/setup-python@v4
        python-version: 3.7

    - name: Install dependencies
      run: |
        python -m pip install --upgrade pip
        pip install -r requirements.txt

    - name: Install plugin
      run: pip install pytest-github-actions-annotate-failures

    - run: pytest

If your test is running in a Docker container, you have to install this plugin and manually set GITHUB_ACTIONS environment variable to true inside of Docker container. (For example, docker-compose run --rm -e GITHUB_ACTIONS=true app -- pytest)

If your tests are run from a subdirectory of the git repository, you have to set the PYTEST_RUN_PATH environment variable to the path of that directory relative to the repository root in order for GitHub to identify the files with errors correctly.
