Konira - A Python DSL Testing Framework
Konira is a tool that allows you to write minimalistic
descriptions for testing scenarios and unit tests.
It is flexible enough to accommodate Behavioral Driven
Development as well as traditional Unit Testing.
As a testing tool, it takes testing itself **seriously** and is tested
and verified to work on
* Python 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2
* PyPy 1.5 and 1.6
Konira's own test suite consists of about 200 tests that run in
about ``0.120s``
It provides a test runner, a dsl and you can optionally use ``py.test``
to run these tests (using the ``pytest-konira`` plugin installed separately).
If you develop with Vim editor, there is also a plugin that will enable
syntax highlighting and running tests from within Vim (see:
What does a test case look like?
describe "a very simple test case for my_module":
it "has a foo property that is True":
But this is not valid Python!
I hear you. It is a DSL. All tests need to specify the ``konira`` encoding
at the top and they can be executed with the included command line tool.
fast and readable action in the terminal

The name
*Konira* is one of the names of an ancient Inca God. Konira Wirakocha diguised
as a traveler in rags. A trickster, a prankster. No one knew who he was, and the
people he passed called him names. Yet as he walked, he created. With a word he
made the fields and terraced hillsides. Dropping a reed blossom, he made water flow.
This is a DSL, it looks like Python - it mostly is, but it packs simplicity and makes
testing look good and easy.
