py.test fixture for creating a virtual environment

Project description

https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/pytest-venv.svg https://img.shields.io/travis/mmerickel/pytest-venv.svg

pytest-venv is a simple pytest plugin that exposes a venv fixture. The fixture is used to create a new virtual environment which can be used to install packages and run commands inside tests.

Usage

import os

def test_it(venv):
    venv.install('pyramid', upgrade=True)
    subprocess.check_call(
        [os.path.join(venv.bin, 'pserve'), 'development.ini'],
    )

API

The venv fixture is an instance of pytest_venv.VirtualEnvironment(path) which exposes the following API:

path

The path to the virtualenv directory.

bin

The path to the bin / Scripts directory.

python

The path to the python executable in the virtualenv.

create(system_site_packages=False, python=None)

Create a virtualenv. This is called automatically by the venv fixture. If python is None then the virtual environment will be created using the same executable as the active runtime.

install(pkg_name, editable=False, upgrade=False)

Use pip to install a package into the virtualenv. pkg_name may be a path to a package on disk.

get_version(pkg_name)

Returns a pkg_resources.Version object which is sortable and convertable to a string.
