An IPython %runtests magic that does some very basic test function discovery, running, and reporting within IPython.
from IPython.core.magic import register_line_magic
def runtests(line):
The %runtests magic searches your IPython namespace for functions
with names that begin with 'test'. It will attempt to run these
functions (calling them with no arguments), and report whether they
pass, fail (raise an AssertionError), or error (raise any other
kind of error).
For tests that fail or error %runtests will show the exception raised
but not the traceback, so write informative messages!
import collections
import time
ip = get_ipython()
tests = {}
# collect tests
# search will only find functions that start with 'test'
for k, v in ip.user_ns.iteritems():
if k.startswith('test') and isinstance(v, collections.Callable):
tests[k] = v
print 'Collected {} tests.\n'.format(len(tests))
# run tests
ok = 0
fail = {}
error = {}
t1 = time.time()
for name, func in tests.iteritems():
print '{} ... '.format(name),
except AssertionError as e:
print 'fail'
fail[name] = e
except Exception as e:
print 'error'
error[name] = e
print 'ok'
ok += 1
t2 = time.time()
# print info on any failures
if fail:
print ''
print 'Failures'
print '========'
for name, e in fail.iteritems():
print '{}: {}'.format(name, repr(e))
# print info on any errors
if error:
print ''
print 'Errors'
print '======'
for name, e in error.iteritems():
print '{}: {}'.format(name, repr(e))
print ''
print 'Ran {} tests in {:.3g} seconds.'.format(len(tests), t2 - t1)
print 'ok = {}, fail = {}, error = {}'.format(ok, len(fail), len(error))
