$ pip install pytestgen


# generate tests for directory 'my_package' in 'tests/' directory
$ pytestgen my_package

# generate tests for some python files and directory 'the_package'
$ pytestgen the_package

# generate tests for directory 'cool_app' in 'cool_tests/' directory
$ pytestgen cool_app -o cool_tests

# generate tests for functions 'foo' and 'bar' in ''
$ pytestgen -i foo -i bar
