A plugin for pytest devs to view how assertion rewriting recodes the AST


Features

Pytest rewrites the AST (abstract syntax tree) of your tests, for the purpose of displaying the subexpressions involved in your assert statements. This plugin converts that rewritten AST back to Python source, and displays it.

Installation

You can install "pytest-ast-back-to-python" via pip from PyPI:

$ pip install pytest-ast-back-to-python

Usage

py.test --show-ast-as-python

Example

Take a trivial test like:

def test_simple():
    a = 1
    b = 2
    assert a + b == 3

View the rewritten AST as Python like this:

$ py.test --show-ast-as-python test_simple.py

======================================== Rewritten AST as Python ========================================
import builtins as @py_builtins
import _pytest.assertion.rewrite as @pytest_ar

def test_simple():
    a = 1
    b = 2
    @py_assert2 = a + b
    @py_assert4 = 3
    @py_assert3 = @py_assert2 == @py_assert4
    if @py_assert3 is None:
        from _pytest.warning_types import PytestAssertRewriteWarning
        from warnings import warn_explicit
        warn_explicit(PytestAssertRewriteWarning('asserting the value None, please use "assert is None"'), category=None, filename='/home/tom/.virtualenvs/tmp-483cf04ecc31dda8/test_thing.py', lineno=4)
    if not @py_assert3:
        @py_format6 = @pytest_ar._call_reprcompare(('==',), (@py_assert3,), ('(%(py0)s + %(py1)s) == %(py5)s',), (@py_assert2, @py_assert4)) % {'py0': @pytest_ar._saferepr(a) if 'a' in @py_builtins.locals() or @pytest_ar._should_repr_global_name(a) else 'a', 'py1': @pytest_ar._saferepr(b) if 'b' in @py_builtins.locals() or @pytest_ar._should_repr_global_name(b) else 'b', 'py5': @pytest_ar._saferepr(@py_assert4)}
        @py_format8 = ('' + 'assert %(py7)s') % {'py7': @py_format6}
        raise AssertionError(@pytest_ar._format_explanation(@py_format8))
    @py_assert2 = @py_assert3 = @py_assert4 = None
