pytest-qt-app 1.0.1

QT app fixture for py.test

Set up a Q Application for QT with an X-Window Virtual Framebuffer (Xvfb).


Install using your favourite package installer:

pip install pytest-qt-app
# or
easy_install pytest-qt-app

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

pytest_plugins = ['pytest_qt_app']


The fixtures are configured using the following evironment variables:

Setting Description Default
SERVER_FIXTURES_XVFB Xvfb server executable /usr/bin/Xvfb


Here’s a little test that shows it working:

from PyQt4 import Qtgui

def test_q_application(q_application):
    # This shows the display is connected properly to the Xvfb
    assert QtGui.QX11Info.display()
