pytest-git 1.2.2

Git repository fixture for py.test

# Pytest GIT Fixture

Creates an empty Git repository for testing that cleans up after itself on teardown.

## Installation

Install using your favourite package installer:
pip install pytest-git
# or
easy_install pytest-git

Enable the fixture explicitly in your tests or (not required when using setuptools entry points):

pytest_plugins = ['pytest_git']

## Usage

This plugin is a thin wrapper around the excellent GitPython library (see
Here's a noddy test case that shows it working:

def test_git_repo(git_repo):
# The fixture derives from `workspace` in `pytest-shutil`, so they contain
# a handle to the path object (see
path = git_repo.workspace
file = path / 'hello.txt'
file.write_text('hello world!')

# We can run commands relative to the working directory'git add hello.txt')

# It's better to use the GitPython api directly - the 'api' attribute is
# a handle to the repository object.
git_repo.api.index.commit("Initial commit")

# The fixture has a URI property you can use in downstream systems
assert git_repo.uri.startswith('file://')
