Description

pytest plugins are an amazing way to supercharge your test suites, leveraging great solutions from people solving test problems all over the world. In this episode Michael and I discuss 15 favorite plugins that you should know about.



We also discuss fixtures and plugins and other testing tools that work great with pytest




  • tox

  • GitHub Actions

  • Coverage.py

  • Selenium + splinter with pytest-splinter

  • Hypothesis



And then our list of pytest plugins:




  1. pytest-sugar

  2. pytest-cov

  3. pytest-stress

  4. pytest-repeat

  5. pytest-instafail

  6. pytest-metadata

  7. pytest-randomly

  8. pytest-xdist

  9. pytest-flake8

  10. pytest-timeout

  11. pytest-spec

  12. pytest-picked

  13. pytest-freezegun

  14. pytest-check

  15. fluentcheck



That last one isn't a plugin, but we also talked about pytest-splinter at the beginning. So I think it still counts as 15.
