unittest2pytest is a tool that helps rewriting Python unittest test-cases into pytest test-cases.
In contrast to other similar tools, this unittest2pytest
- handles keyword arguments,
- handles single-line test-cases and several tests on one line,
- uses context-handlers where appropriate.
This is done by using
lib2to3 and Python's mighty
To install unittest2pytest, simply run:
pip install unittest2pytest
To print a diff of changes that unittest2pytest will make against a particular source file or directory:
To have those changes written to the files:
unittest2pytest -w source_folder
To have those changes written to another directory:
unittest2pytest -w source_folder --output-dir /some/where/else
By default, this will create backup files for each file that will be changed. You can add the -n option to not create the backups. Please do not do this if you are not using a version control system.
For more options about running particular fixers, run
unittest2pytest --help or read the lib2to3 documentation. This
tool is built on top of that one.
A list of the available fixers can be found with the following:
$ unittest2pytest -l Available transformations for the -f/--fix option: remove_class self_assert
Note: if your tests use the context managers
with self.assertRaises or
with self.assertWarns, they will be transformed to
pytest.warns appropriately, but because the semantics are different, any
use of the output value from the context managers (e.g. the
with pytest.raises(ValueError) as x:) will be wrong and will require
manual adjustment after the fact.
