pytest-html 1.9.0

pytest plugin for generating HTML reports

Latest Version: 1.16.0

pytest-html is a plugin for py.test that generates a HTML report for the test results.


Mozilla is participating in the Outreachy program helping people from groups underrepresented in free and open source software to get involved. For the round running May 23 to August 23, 2016, there is a project to work on several enhancements to pytest-html.


You will need the following prerequisites in order to use pytest-html:

  • Python 2.6, 2.7, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, PyPy, or PyPy3
  • py.test 2.7 or newer


To install pytest-html:

$ pip install pytest-html

Then run your tests with:

$ py.test --html=report.html

Enhancing reports

You can add change the Environment section of the report by modifying request.config._html.environment from a fixture:

def _environment(request):
    request.config._environment.append(('foo', 'bar'))

You can add details to the HTML reports by creating an ‘extra’ list on the report object. The following example adds the various types of extras using a pytest_runtest_makereport hook, which can be implemented in a plugin or file:

import pytest
def pytest_runtest_makereport(item, call):
    pytest_html = item.config.pluginmanager.getplugin('html')
    outcome = yield
    report = outcome.get_result()
    extra = getattr(report, 'extra', [])
    if report.when == 'call':
        # always add url to report
        xfail = hasattr(report, 'wasxfail')
        if (report.skipped and xfail) or (report.failed and not xfail):
            # only add additional html on failure
            extra.append(pytest_html.extras.html('<div>Additional HTML</div>'))
        report.extra = extra
