Plugin for py.test to enter PyCharm debugger on uncaught exceptions

Project description

Plugin for pytest to enter PyCharm debugger on uncaught exceptions

  • Free software: BSD license


  • Uncaught exceptions in pytest test cases will trigger the PyCharm debugger


You can install the plugin by running

pip install pytest-pycharm

Alternately check out the source code and run

python install


You are ready to go right after the plugin installation. Execute any test in PyCharm by right-clicking on a test and selecting Debug pytest in …. The debugger will pause on a false assertion (see test example).

The plugin also works with custom pytest Run Configurations: Run | Edit Configurations | Add New Configuration | Python tests | pytest.

Note: make sure the Run Configuration uses the correct interpreter with pytest-pycharm installed.
