pytest, software testing, tap
The Test Anything Protocol, or TAP, is a way to record test results in a language agnostic way, predates XML by about 10 years, and is still alive and kicking. Matt is the maintainer of tap.py and pytest-tap, two tools that bring the Test Anything Protocol to Python. In this episode, Matt and I discuss TAP, it's history, his involvement, and some cool use cases for it.
