pytest-spec 0.2.24

pytest plugin to display test execution output like a SPECIFICATION

pytest-spec

pytest plugin to display test execution output like a SPECIFICATION.

Available features

  • Format output to look like specification.
  • Group tests by classes.
  • Failed, passed and skipped are marked and colored.
  • Remove test_ and underscores for every test.
  • Method under test may be highlighted (method) like in example.

Output example

py.test --spec

test/test_example.py::TestWhenExamplePassed
    [PASS]  Execute returns positive return code

test/test_example.py::TestWhenExampleFailed
    [FAIL]  Execute returns negative return code

test/test_example.py::TestWhenExampleIsSkipped
    [SKIP]  Execute returns something

test/test_example.py::TestExamplesWhenMethodUnderTestIsHighlighted
    [FAIL]  The (execute_command) returns negative return code
    [PASS]  The (execute_command) returns positive return code
    [SKIP]  The (execute_command) returns something

Highlight method under test

Simple test definition is required (double ‘__’ characters before and after method) to put method under test between ‘<>’ characters e.g.

def test__execute_method__returns_something(self):

may be displayed as:

[PASS]  The (execute_command) returns something
[FAIL]  The (execute_command) returns something
[SKIP]  The (execute_command) returns something

This type of format provides clear information:

  • which method is under test
  • what kind of result should be expected
