pytest plugin for adding to the PYTHONPATH from command line or configs.

Project description


This is a py.test plugin for adding to the PYTHONPATH from the pytests.ini file before tests run.


Install with pip::

pip install pytest-pythonpath

Uninstall with pip::

pip uninstall pytest-pythonpath


Add a line in your pytest.ini file with a key of `python_paths` and provide a space seperated list of paths
you want inserted to the beginning of the PYTHONPATH before any tests run:

python_paths = your/path/apps your/path/libs

If you'd like to have `.pth` files be processed too, use `site_dirs` instead:

site_dirs = your/path/apps your/path/libs

This will cause the `addsitedir` function to be called on each path instead of a simple `sys.path.insert(0, path)`.
Note that using the `site_dirs` will not place your specified paths in front of existing paths.

Once this is added to your pytest.ini, you can use the py.test command as you normally would.
