Turning your github readme files into python test suites since 2012

Steady Mark was created for python developers that love Github and markdown.

How it works:

Write your documentation using github-flavored markdown, surround your snippets with python code blocks and steadymark will automatically find and run them, if there is a header preceeding your python snippet it will be used as title for your test.


  • Add test coverage to your app/library while documenting it
  • Never have old malfunctional examples on your project's main page in github
  • It uses misaka which is a python-binding of sundown, the markdown engine that github uses in itself


unicode.lower transforms string into lowercase

from sure import expect
assert expect(u"Gabriel Falcao".lower()).equals(u"gabriel falcao")

python can add numbers

assert (2 + 2) == 4, 'oops baby'

Start using steady mark now!

This is the code for the example above, copy and paste in you python project right now and start keeping your documentation up-to-date with the code.

# My project name
`version 0.1`

## unicode.lower transforms string into lowercase

assert "LOWERCaSe".lower() == "lowercase"

## python can add numbers

assert (2 + 2) == 5, 'oops baby'

Just run with:

$ steadymark

loading a python file before running tests

you can tell steadymark to load a "boot" file before running the tests, it's very useful for hooking up sure or HTTPretty

Steadymark is on version 0.8.3

>>> from sure import expect
>>> from steadymark import version
>>> assert expect(version).should.equal("0.8.3")
