Why would I want such a thing?

My purpose is testing.

You can easily enough doctest a markdown file with python -m doctest myfile.md, but I don't like typing or looking at a whole bunch of >>> and ...'s. Also there's no way that I know of to run linters against such code blocks.

Instead, I include (pytest) functional tests in my codeblocks, extract the code blocks with this script, and then run my test runner and linters against the output files.

Running Tests

./test
