pytest-cpp 0.3.0

Use pytest's runner to discover and execute C++ tests

Latest Version: 0.4.5

Use pytest runner to discover and execute C++ tests.

Supports both Google Test and Boost::Test:

This brings several benefits:

  • Allows you to run all your tests in multi-language projects with a single command;
  • Execute C++ tests in parallel using pytest-xdist plugin;
  • Use --junitxml option to produce a single and uniform xml file with all your test suite results;
  • Filter which tests to run using standard test filtering capabilities, such as by file names, directories, keywords by using the -k option, etc.;


Once installed, when py.test runs it will search and run tests founds in executable files, detecting if the suites are Google or Boost tests automatically.

You can configure which files are tested for suites by using the cpp_files ini configuration:


Default is to match test_* and *_test file names.


  • Python 2.7+, Python 3.2+
  • pytest

$ pip install pytest-cpp
