Generate Pytest reports with templates

Project description

PyPI version

Generate Pytest reports from templates. You may use one of the available templates on PyPI (like the reference template pytest-reporter-html1), inherit them in your own template to tweak their content and appearence or make your own from scratch.

Anything text based can be generated like HTML, LaTeX, CSV et.c.


You can install “pytest-reporter” via pip from PyPI:

$ pip install pytest-reporter


Specify the template you want to use and the output path of the report:

$ pytest --template-dir=templates --template=report.html --report=report.html

Writing templates

This plugin does not come with built-in support for any template engines, it is up to each template to implement the rendering (or use another template plugin as base). A minimal template may just implement the pytest_reporter_render hook.

This is a very basic Jinja2 template implementation:

from jinja2 import Environment, FileSystemLoader, TemplateNotFound

def pytest_reporter_render(template_name, dirs, context):
    env = Environment(loader=FileSystemLoader(dirs))
        template = env.get_template(template_name)
    except TemplateNotFound:
        # Don't know about this name, may be provided by some other template
    return template.render(context)

See pytest-reporter-html1 for a full reference implementation.

The template context

The standard context available for all templates include the following:

  • config: Config

  • session: Session

  • started: Unix timestamp when session started

  • ended: Unix timestamp when session was finished

  • warnings[]: List of warnings.WarningMessage

  • items: Dictionary of collected items with nodeid as keys

  • tests[]: List of each test run as dictionaries with the following keys:

    • item: Item

    • phases[]: List of each test phase (setup, call, teardown) as dictionaries with the following keys:

      • call (optional): CallInfo if available.

      • report: TestReport

      • sections: Same as report.sections but only the sections captured for this phase

      • log_records[]: List of logging.LogRecord recorded during the test phase

      • status: Status of this phase. Dictionary with the following keys:

        • category: Category of the status (e.g. "passed") or empty string

        • letter: Single letter version of status (e.g. "P") or empty string

        • word: Uppercase word version of status (e.g. "PASSED") or empty string

        • style: Dictionary with e.g. {"yellow": True} or empty dictionary

    • status: Status of whole test. Dictionary with the following keys:

      • category: Category of the test status (e.g. "passed")

      • letter: Single letter version of test status (e.g. "P")

      • word: Uppercase word version of test status (e.g. "PASSED")

      • style: Dictionary with e.g. {"yellow": True} or empty dictionary

The context may be extended or modified using the following methods:

  • config.template_context

  • The template_context fixture

  • The pytest_reporter_context() hook
