simpletap 1.0.1

Unittest runner producing Test Anything Protocol (TAP) output

simpletap is a test runner that integrates with the unittest framework to produce TAP (Test Anything Protocol) compatible output.

simpletap has been extensively tested under Python 2.7 and is considered production ready.
Python 3.4-3.5 is also supported but has not seen as much testing.

Usage

In your test scripts, instead of:

if __name__ == "__main__":
    unittest.main()

use:

if __name__ == "__main__":
    from simpletap import TAPTestRunner
    unittest.main(testRunner=TAPTestRunner())

A small test case like:

import unittest

class IntegerArithmeticTestCase(unittest.TestCase):
    def testAdd(self):  # test method names begin 'test*'
        "test adding values"
        self.assertEqual((1 + 2), 3)
        self.assertEqual(0 + 1, 1)

    def testMultiply(self):
        "test multiplying values"
        self.assertEqual((0 * 10), 0)
        self.assertEqual((5 * 8), 40)

    def testFail(self):
        "a failing test"
        self.assertEqual(0, 1)

    @unittest.expectedFailure
    def testExpectFail(self):
        "we saw this coming"
        self.assertEqual(0, 1)

    @unittest.skipIf(True, "Skipping this one")
    def testSkip(self):
        "pending a fix"
        self.assertEqual(0, 1)

    def testError(self):
        "oops something went wrong"
        no_such_variable + 1  # Oops!

if __name__ == "__main__":
    from simpletap import TAPTestRunner
    unittest.main(testRunner=TAPTestRunner())

When saved in a file called test.py and executed would produce:

1..6
ok 1 - test.py: test adding values
not ok 2 - test.py: oops something went wrong
# ERROR: NameError on file test.py line 30 in testError: 'no_such_variable + 1  # Oops!':
#        global name 'no_such_variable' is not defined
skip 3 - test.py: we saw this coming
# EXPECTED_FAILURE: AssertionError on file test.py line 21 in testExpectFail: 'self.assertEqual(0, 1)':
#                   0 != 1
not ok 4 - test.py: a failing test
# FAIL: AssertionError on file test.py line 16 in testFail: 'self.assertEqual(0, 1)':
#       0 != 1
ok 5 - test.py: test multiplying values
skip 6 - test.py: pending a fix
# SKIP:
#       Skipping this one

You can also launch simpletap directly from the command line in much the same way you do with unittest:

python -m simpletap test.IntegerArithmeticTestCase

Deviations from standard

The specification of Test Anything Protocol treats skipped tests as ok.

During the use of this module it was found to be more useful to treat these, as well as expected failures as extensions to the specification under the keyword skip.

Testing

The test suite is configured to run via tox.
