A Pytest plugin for running a subset of your tests by splitting them in to equally sized groups.
Welcome to pytest-test-groups!
pytest-test-groups allows you to split your test runs into groups of a specific size to make it easier to split up your test runs.
# Install pytest-test-groups pip install pytest-test-groups # Split the tests into 10 groups and run the second group py.test --test-group-count 10 --test-group=2 # Randomize the test order, split into 10 groups, and run the second group py.test --test-group-count 10 --test-group=2 --test-group-random-seed=12345
Why would I use this?
Sometimes you may have some long running test jobs that take a while to complete. This can be a major headache when trying to run tests quickly. pytest-test-groups allows you to easily say “split my tests into groups of 10 tests and run the second group”. This is primarily useful in the context of CI builds.
