Project description


Expand command-line shortcuts listed in pytest configuration

This pytest plugin was generated with Cookiecutter along with @hackebrot's cookiecutter-pytest-plugin template.

Getting Started

Install using your favourite python package manager:

$ pip install pytest-shortcuts

Add some shortcuts to your pytest configuration:

shortcuts =
    --live: -m "live and not slow"
    --slow: -m "live and slow"
    --offline: --disable-socket -m "not live"

Now when you run your tests with eg --live, it will be as if you provided -m "live and not slow".


If you would like to contribute, you may need to install the following development tools:

# Useful for installing tools like tox and pre-commit in a separate environment
pip install --user pipx

# We run the test suite with tox
pipx install tox
pipx install flake8

# Install pre-commit hooks to prevent commits that do not pass static checks
pipx install pre-commit
pre-commit install

Additionally, you will want to install a number of different Python versions for tox to use. I would recommend using pyenv to do this. After you have installed pyenv, run tox to see which Python versions you are missing and enable them. For example:

brew install pyenv              # If you have homebrew
tox -l                          # Check which Python versions are currently required
pipx inject tox tox-pyenv       # Make pyenv versions available to tox
pyenv install 3.6.11            # If you need a Python 3.6
pyenv install 3.7.8             # If you need a Python 3.7
pyenv install 3.8.5             # If you need a Python 3.8
pyenv local 3.6.11 3.7.8 3.8.5  # Make these versions locally available
tox                             # Run the test suite via tox (same as "make test")

A simple Makefile is included to run development commands, just type make to see a list of available commands.
