Pytest Helpers Namespace

This plugin does not provide any helpers to pytest, it does, however, provide a helpers namespace in pytest which enables you to register helper functions in your conftest.py to be used within your tests without having to import them.

Features

  • Provides a helpers pytest namespace which can be used to register helper functions without requiring you to import them on your actual tests to use them.

Requirements

  • None!

Installation

You can install “pytest-helpers-namespace” via pip from PyPI:

$ pip install pytest-helpers-namespace

Usage

Consider the following conftest.py file:

import pytest


@pytest.helpers.register
def foo(bar):
    """
    this dumb helper function will just return what you pass to it
    """
    return bar

And now consider the following test case:

def test_helper_namespace():
    assert pytest.helpers.foo(True) is True

Pretty simple right?!

You can even nest namespaces. Consider the following conftest.py file:

pytest_plugins = ["helpers_namespace"]

import pytest


@pytest.helpers.can.haz.register
def foo(bar):
    """
    this dumb helper function will just return what you pass to it
    """
    return bar

And now consider the following test case:

def test_helper_namespace():
    assert pytest.helpers.can.haz.foo(True) is True

You can even pass a name to the register function and that will be the helper function name.


This Pytest plugin was generated with Cookiecutter along with @hackebrot’s Cookiecutter-pytest-plugin template.
