I'd like to announce the initial release of pytest.
Pytest is a testing interpreter for Python. Unlike a testing
/framework/, pytest requires nothing of its test scripts that is not
included in the Python language itself. Pytests are regular Python
scripts that are interpreted in a special way. Specifically, all
explicit comparison statements (i.e., those with a comparison operator),
are interpreted as tests, and their results are tallied and reported on
following execution of the script.
Documentation and downloads are available at:
This initial release, version 0.3.0, is a development release. It will
be of interest to those with a special interest in testing under Python,
but will have bugs that may frustrate general users.
Pytest is released under the following license:
