Test failures are better served with humor.

Project description


Build Status Requirements Status Pyversions PyPI

Running tests is better with some healthy (or not) amount or humor! 😃

This is a completely useless plugin created to get some practice in creating plugins for Pytest.

Powered by pyjokes.

Installation 🐍

You can install pytest-joke via pip from PyPI:

$ pip install pytest-joke


When the plugin is installed, every time a test run results in a failure, the terminal would output a random joke in an attempt to cheer you up.

Humor-powered output enabled 😃.

plugins: mock-1.10.4, joke-0.1.0

=================================== FAILURES ===================================
_________________________________ test_failed __________________________________

    def test_failed():
>       assert 1 == 2
E       assert 1 == 2 AssertionError
====================== 1 failed, 1 passed in 0.03 seconds ======================

There are two ways to write error-free programs; only the third one works.


  • make the plugin configurable: turn on/off, language, joke category, number of jokes


Distributed under the terms of the MIT license, pytest-joke is free and open source software.
