Project description


py.test plugin pytest plugin which adds pdb helper commands related to pytest.


install via:

pip install pytest-pdb


gototest | gt

When debugging with pdb, type gototest which brings you directly to the frame of the test function.

whichtest | wt

When debugging with pdb, type whichtest which should print something like:

Currently in TestClasses.test_class_pdb

It works by walking the frame stack until it finds a test item in the locals. This depends on how pytest_pyfunc_call is implemented. If that changes or is replaced by a plugin, the whichtest command may fail.


Move to top (oldest) frame.


Move to bottom (newest) frame.
