A small plugin for the pytest testing framework, marking TODO comments as failure

Project description

Marking unfinished source code or known problems with a TODO comment is a popular method among developers. During development this is an acceptable, lightweight option. In a release version however TODO comments leave a bitter taste at best or mean a forgotten major issue at worst.

This plugin parses Python source files for TODO comments and marks them as a failed test.


~$ pytest --todo

Possible Usage

During development the CI server simply runs the unit tests against the code, checking if the tests pass. At this stage TODO comments are allowed. Once a release candidate exists (maybe on a release branch) the CI server will also add the –todo flag. Forgotten TODO comments will now cause the tests to fail and a possible source of bugs is cleared out before the release happens.
