Test Anything Protocol (TAP) reporting plugin for pytest

Project description

pytest-tap is a reporting plugin for pytest that outputs Test Anything Protocol (TAP) data. TAP is a line based test protocol for recording test data in a standard way.

Use pytest --tap after installing to get started.

Follow GitHub for more information or to follow this plugin’s development. Additional developer documentation about Python and TAP is on Read the Docs.


Version 3.4, July 15, 2023

  • Deprecate --tap-stream in favor of --tap for streaming mode.

  • When using xdist, report the plan at the beginning of execution.

  • Add support for Python 3.11.

  • Drop support for Python 3.7 (it is end-of-life).

  • Drop support for Python 3.6 (it is end-of-life).

  • Drop support for PyPy.

Version 3.3, October 27, 2021

  • Add support for Python 3.10.

  • Fix bug with help printing when streaming mode is enabled (#59).

  • Drop support for Python 3.5 (it is end-of-life).

  • Remove unmaintained (and likely inaccurate) locale info.

Version 3.2, November 7, 2020

  • Add support for Python 3.8.

  • Add support for Python 3.9.

  • Handle unittest.expectedFailure and pytest.xfail in a way that is more consistent with the TAP specification.

Version 3.1, Released March 25, 2020

  • Fix reporting that was broken by the removal of a deprecated feature in pytest 5.4.

Version 3.0, Released January 28, 2020

  • Drop support for Python 2.

Version 2.5, Released December 26, 2019

  • Last supported version for Python 2.

  • Pin to a version range that supports Python 2.

Version 2.4, Released October 21, 2019

  • Handle failures that occur from setup. This will catch errors that may happen in fixtures.

  • Drop support for Python 3.4 (it is end-of-life).

  • Add support for Python 3.7.

Version 2.3, Released September 16, 2018

  • Improve xfail handling. Honor strict xfail mode. Use TODO instead of SKIP directive to better align with TAP specification.

  • Output the plan line (1..N) first.

Version 2.2, Released January 9, 2018

  • Update output format to match closer to pytest styling.

  • Drop support for Python 3.3 (it is end-of-life).

Version 2.1, Released August 12, 2017

  • Add support for Python 3.6.

  • Fix crash when running with pytest-xdist (#27).

Version 2.0, Released August 1, 2016

  • Update to 2.0. This update drops the indirect dependencies on nose and pygments.

  • Improve handling of skips and xfails.

  • Suppress # TAP results for TestCase for streaming. This header makes little sense for pytest’s test function paradigm. Including the header generated extra noise for each function.

  • Drop support for Python 2.6

Version 1.9, Released June 11, 2016

  • Initial release as stand-alone plugin. The version number aligns with tappy.
