pytest: simple powerful testing with Python

Project description

pytest
https://img.shields.io/pypi/v/pytest.svg https://img.shields.io/pypi/pyversions/pytest.svg https://img.shields.io/coveralls/pytest-dev/pytest/master.svg https://travis-ci.org/pytest-dev/pytest.svg?branch=master https://ci.appveyor.com/api/projects/status/mrgbjaua7t33pg6b?svg=true

The pytest framework makes it easy to write small tests, yet scales to support complex functional testing for applications and libraries.

An example of a simple test:

# content of test_sample.py
def func(x):
    return x + 1

def test_answer():
    assert func(3) == 5

To execute it:

$ pytest
======= test session starts ========
collected 1 items

test_sample.py F

======= FAILURES ========
_______ test_answer ________

    def test_answer():
>       assert func(3) == 5
E       assert 4 == 5
E        +  where 4 = func(3)

test_sample.py:5: AssertionError
======= 1 failed in 0.12 seconds ========

Due to pytest’s detailed assertion introspection, only plain assert statements are used. See getting-started for more examples.

Features

  • Detailed info on failing assert statements (no need to remember self.assert* names);
  • Auto-discovery of test modules and functions;
  • Modular fixtures for managing small or parametrized long-lived test resources;
  • Can run unittest (or trial), nose test suites out of the box;
  • Python2.6+, Python3.3+, PyPy-2.3, Jython-2.5 (untested);
  • Rich plugin architecture, with over 150+ external plugins and thriving community;
