For various reasons tests can be slower on some runs than other. However, without a timestamp in front of the test it is not clear to the user how long the current test has been taking. This plugin adds a simple timestamp in front of the pytest output.


pip install pytest-timestamper


To activate the plugin one simply needs to install it. The user can update the format of the prefix with the --prefixfmt and the datetime format with --datefmt.
