Project description

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

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

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

Issues: https://github.com/pytest-dev/pytest/issues

Features

  • 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 from Python2.6 all the way up to Python3.5, PyPy-2.3, (jython-2.5 untested)
  • 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.
