I'm considering a plugin for doing acceptance testing with py.test. The
core idea is to mimic the behaviour of Concordion
(http://concordion.org) with respect to visual effects and reports, but
use a python engine. The python libs I am considering are py.test for
running tests and genshi for xml instrumentation.
Then, to get a polished plugin some code need to be written; a py.test
plugin for test collection and reporting, and a utility library for
easing genshi xml insturmentation.
Well, the reason for this explanation is to see if anybody out there has
some input regarding the idea, or maybe know of some useful libs or
approaches to achieve the aim, which btw. is to obtain efficient,
readable, executable acceptance tests connected to requirements. Read
more about this aim on the Concordion website.
