blueyed tests: fix test_item_count_after_pytest_collection_modifyitems (#169)
`-p no:sugar` never worked to disable pytest-sugar, and the test assumes
pytest-sugar is used.
Latest commit a210316 Feb 11, 2019


pytest-sugar is a plugin for py.test that shows failures and errors instantly and shows a progress bar.


You will need the following prerequisites in order to use pytest-sugar:

  • Python 2.7, 3.4 or newer
  • pytest 2.9.0 or newer
  • pytest-xdist 1.14 or above if you want the progress bar to work while running tests in parallel


To install pytest-sugar:

$ pip install pytest-sugar

Then run your tests with:

$ py.test

If you would like more detailed output (one test per line), then you may use the verbose option:

$ py.test --verbose

If you would like to run tests without pytest-sugar, use:

$ py.test -p no:sugar
