Description

IDEs can help people with automated testing.



In this episode, Paul Everitt and Brian discuss ways IDEs can encourage testing and make it easier for everyone, including beginners. We discuss features that exist and are great, as well as what is missing.



The conversation also includes topics around being welcoming to new contributors for both open source and professional projects.



We talk about a lot of topics, and it's a lot of fun. But it's also important. Because IDEs can make testing



Some topics discussed:




  • Making testing more accessible

  • Test First vs teaching testing last

  • TDD workflow

  • Autorun

  • Rerunning last failures

  • Different ways to run different levels of tests

  • Command line flags and how to access them in IDEs

  • pytest.ini

  • zooming in and out of test levels

  • running parametrizations

  • running tests with coverage and profiling

  • parametrize vs parameterize

  • parametrization identifiers

  • pytest fixture support

  • global configurations / configuration templates

  • coverage and testing and being inviting to new contributors

  • confidence in changes and confidence in contributions

  • navigating code, tests, fixtures

  • grouping tests in modules, classes, directories

  • BDD, behavior driven development, cucumber, pytest-bdd

  • web development testing

  • parallel testing with xdist and IDE support

  • refactor rename
