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 inc(x):
    return x + 1


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

To execute it:

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

test_sample.py F

================================== FAILURES ===================================
_________________________________ test_answer _________________________________

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

test_sample.py:5: AssertionError
========================== 1 failed in 0.04 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;
  • Python 3.5+ and PyPy3;
  • Rich plugin architecture, with over 315+ external plugins and thriving community;
