Use @pytest.mark.only to run a single test

Project description

Only run tests marked with @pytest.mark.only. If none are marked, all tests run as usual.

Borrowed from mocha.

Installation

pip install pytest-only

Usage

Use it on functions

import pytest

def test_that_will_not_run():
    assert 0

@pytest.mark.only
def test_that_will_run():
    assert 1
$ py.test -v test_example.py

============================= test session starts ==============================
platform linux -- Python 3.6.1, pytest-3.0.7, py-1.4.33, pluggy-0.4.0 -- /tmp/example/bin/python3.6

test_example.py::test_that_will_run PASSED

=========================== 1 passed in 0.00 seconds ===========================

Or use it on classes

import pytest

class TestThatWillNotRun:
    def test_that_will_not_run(self):
        assert 0


@pytest.mark.only
class TestThatWillRun:
    def test_that_will_run(self):
        assert 1
$ py.test -v test_example.py

pytestmark = pytest.mark.only

def test_that_will_run():
    assert 1
# test_example2.py
def test_that_will_not_run():

Disable for single test run

To run all the tests, regardless of whether @pytest.mark.only is used, pass the --no-only flag to pytest:

$ py.test --no-only

If --no-only has already been passed (perhaps by way of addopts in pytest.ini), use the --only flag to re-enable it:

$ py.test --no-only --only

Pylint checker

If you use pylint, you can avoid committing stray only marks with the bundled plugin. Just enable the pylint checker in your plugins and enable the unexpected-focused rule.

[MASTER]
load-plugins=pytest_only.ext.pylint

[MESSAGES CONTROL]
enable=unexpected-focused
$ cat test_ninja.py
import pytest

@pytest.mark.only
def test_ninja():
    pass

$ pylint test_ninja.py
************* Module mymain
test_ninja.py:3:0: W1650: Unexpected focused test(s) using pytest.mark.only: def test_ninja (unexpected-focused)

Development

  1. Install the test/dev requirements using Poetry

    poetry install
  2. Run the tests

    py.test
  3. Run the tests on all currently-supported platforms

    tox
