A pythonic testing framework.
Testify is a replacement for Python's unittest module. It is modeled after unittest, and tests written for unittest will run under testify with a minimum of adjustments, but it has features above and beyond unittest:
- class-level setup and teardown fixture methods which are run once each for an entire set of test methods.
- a decorator-based approach for fixture methods, eliminating the need for super() calls.
- More pythonic, less java-unittest
- enhanced test discovery - testify can drill down into packages to find test cases.
- support for collecting and running tests by 'tagging' modules, classes or methods.
- A decorator-based approach to temporarily disabling certain tests, which strongly encourages documentation and eventual fixing of bugs.
- Pretty test runner output (color!)
If you have anymore questions, you can message us here on github or send an email to email@example.com For now we're going to try to use the github wiki/issue tracker and whatnot, but we might end up creating a google code site if that doesn't work out. Stay tuned.
