A plugin to improve the readability of pytest output.
- Enables an easier to parse and more understandable diff for your failing tests.
- Can display unified diffs or split diffs, and chooses them depending on the context.
- Adds helpful hints to the output for failing tests to help you track down common issues.
The same test, without pytest-clarity:
Supports Python 2.7 and 3.4+
$ pip install pytest-clarity
Install the plugin as described above.
** The plugin will only be activated when the -vv option is supplied to pytest.**
You can choose which type of diff you want with
--diff-type (auto (default), split or unified):
pytest -vv --diff-type=split
You can disable hints using the
pytest -vv --no-hints
You can configure the width of the output with the
pytest -vv --diff-width=60
