ipython_doctester
=================

Lets you run the doctests of a single class or function at a time.  Useful for 
tutorials based on the IPython Notebook, using doctests for student feeback.

Install with ``pip install ipython_doctester``, or 
navigate to this directory and run::

    python setup.py install

Use
===

Run ``ipython notebook``, then start your notebook with this import::

    In [1]: from ipython_doctester import test

In each subsequent cell, set up objects with their doctests, and with absent 
(or flawed) function bodies, and decorate them with @test::

    In [2]: @test
            def square(x):
                '''
                >>> f(2)
                4
                '''
                
Tests will run on each cell as it is executed.

If you want to track students' progress through a notebook in a 
classroom setting, you can; see 
http://ipython-docent.appspot.com/
for instructions.

If no doctests are found in the function's docstring, the program will look 
for a file ``./docstrings/<function name>.txt``, append that to the function's
docstring, and check for doctests again.  This can be used to keep the presence
of the docstrings from confusing students.
