A plugin to generate customizable jinja-based HTML reports in pytest

Project description

pytest-jinja is a plugin to generate customizable jinja-based HTML reports in pytest. It’s based on pytest-html, but changes its inner working completely by separating the results data collection and the report generation, allowing easy developent of custom HTML reports that can include any javascript or css.

License Python versions Issues

This version is a fork from [g-bon’s pytest-jinja](


You will need the following prerequisites in order to use pytest-html:

  • Python 3.10


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

$ pip install pytest-jinja


  • if no template is specified a default template is used. The default template looks almost identical to pytest-html:

    $ pytest testcase --report=test_report.html
  • or you can pass your own template, pytest-jinja will render your template passing in the report data as jinja variables:

    $ pytest testcase --report=test_report.html --template=my_template.html

Creating a custom template

You can create your own template by simply creating any template. The report data is “passed” to the page as a single object called report. The attributes of this object contain all the necessary report data.

Template Example

<html lang="en">
    <meta charset="UTF-8">
    <title>Test Report - {{ report.time_report_generation }}</title>
<h1>Test Report - {{ report.time_report_generation }} </h1>

<table id="environment">
    {% for name,value in report.environment.items() %}
        <td>{{ name }}</td>
        <td>{{ value }}</td>
    {% endfor %}

<p>{{ report.tests_count }} tests ran in {{ report.duration | round(2)}} seconds. </p>

    {% for r in report.results %}
        <td>{{ r.test_id }}</td>
        <td>{{ r.outcome }}</td>
        <td><strong>{{ r.time|round(5) }}s</strong></td>
    {% endfor %}


Another Template Example

{{ report | json }}

Available Report Data

report.tests_count : the total number of tests executed (int)

report.errors : the number of errors (int)

report.failed : the number of failed tests (int)

report.passed : the number of passed tests (int)

report.skipped : the number of skipped tests (int)

report.xfailed : the number of expected failures (int)

report.xpassed: the number of unexpected passes (int)

report.rerun: the number of reruns (int)

report.duration : the test session duration in seconds (float)

report.time_report_generation : date and time of report generation (str)

report.environment: metadata on tests execution (dict)

report.results: the test results data (Object with attributes test_id, time, outcome, stacktrace, config)

report.report_path: report path passed via command line (pathlib.Path)

report.template_path: template path passed via command line (pathlib.Path)
