About this Episode

pytest plugins are an amazing way to supercharge your test suites, leveraging great solutions from people solving test problems all over the world. In this episode Michael and I discuss 15 favorite plugins that you should know about.

We also discuss fixtures and plugins and other testing tools that work great with pytest

  • tox
  • GitHub Actions
  • Coverage.py
  • Selenium + splinter with pytest-splinter
  • Hypothesis

And then our list of pytest plugins:

  1. pytest-sugar
  2. pytest-cov
  3. pytest-stress
  4. pytest-repeat
  5. pytest-instafail
  6. pytest-metadata
  7. pytest-randomly
  8. pytest-xdist
  9. pytest-flake8
  10. pytest-timeout
  11. pytest-spec
  12. pytest-picked
  13. pytest-freezegun
  14. pytest-check
  15. fluentcheck

That last one isn't a plugin, but we also talked about pytest-splinter at the beginning. So I think it still counts as 15.
