Add paths to sys.path

Project description


Add paths to sys.path.
A pytest plugin to help pytest find the code you want to test.


Install with pip:

pip install pytest-srcpaths


Add a line in your pytest.ini file with a key of srcpaths. It should contain a space-separated list of paths.

srcpaths = src lib

Paths are relative to the directory that pytest.ini is in.
You can include the top level directory with a dot.

srcpaths = .

Alternatively, use pythonpath

The option pythonpath also works the same.

pythonpath = src lib

pytest 7 (not released yet) is planned to include the pythonpath option.

For pytest 6.2.x, this plugin will work.


  • 1.2.1 - Add pythonpath as an alternative to srcpath option for pytest versions < 7.0.0
    • this is to allow this project to act as a temporary workaround until pytest 7 is released

Similar project

This plugin was inspired by pytest-pythonpath whose implementation and scope are a bit different.
