pytest-runfailed 0.6

implement a --failed option for pytest

pytest plugin to implement a --failed option


This project is no longer maintained.

If you are using pytest >= 2.8 you don’t need to install anything, since the functionality has been added to pytest core

If you are using pytest <= 2.7 you should use use pytest-cache instead.

  • It provides the same feature with --lf instead of --failed (which is shorter)
  • It’s developed by the original author of pytest (Holger Krekel)
  • It has more features
  • It does not use pickle for storing data so it’s safe to use across different versions of Python

The only downside is that pytest-cache depends on execnet, whereas pytest-runfailed is standalone.


Just run

py.test --failed

You’ll need to run the full suite once before the option --failed can work.

The failing tests ids are stored into a .pytest directory, just remove it if you experience issues.
