EuroPython 2017

The pytest/tox/devpi helpdesk

Speaker(s) Oliver Bestwalter

We will answer your questions about pytest, tox and devpi. These tools and their plugins can help you you with testing and releasing your packages either individually or when used together.

Any questions regarding getting started or concrete problems are welcome. We might not be able to solve all of them, but we will try our best to get you started and point you in the right direction.

Potential topics and questions are:

  • I would like to test functionality X, but don’t know how to go about this, can you help me?

  • pytest/tox/devpi does not work as I expect. Is this a bug or am I doing it wrong?

  • My tox.ini is pretty verbose - can I simplify it somehow?

  • I use Unittest for my tests, how can pytest make things better for me?

  • My test suite is turning into an unmaintainable mess, can you give me some tips on how to avoid that?

  • I have a weird bug that I can only reproduce on my laptop, can you have a look?

  • I can’t test things properly locally because our continuous integration system is doing a lot of extra work, is there a way to do this differently?
