pytest: simple powerful testing with Python

Project Description

Documentation: http://pytest.org/latest/

Changelog: http://pytest.org/latest/changelog.html

Issues: https://bitbucket.org/hpk42/pytest/issues?status=open

The pytest testing tool makes it easy to write small tests, yet scales to support complex functional testing. It provides

  • auto-discovery of test modules and functions,
  • detailed info on failing assert statements (no need to remember self.assert* names)
  • modular fixtures for managing small or parametrized long-lived test resources.
  • multi-paradigm support: you can use pytest to run test suites based on unittest (or trial), nose
  • single-source compatibility to Python2.5 all the way up to Python3.3, PyPy-1.9 and Jython-2.5.1.
  • many external plugins.

A simple example for a test:

# content of test_module.py
def test_function():
    i = 4
    assert i == 3

which can be run with py.test test_module.py. See getting-started for more examples.
