pytest-wholenodeid addon: v0.2 released!

, | Tweet this

What is it?

pytest-wholenodeid is a pytest addon that shows the whole node id on failure rather than just the domain part. This makes it a lot easier to copy and paste the entire node id and re-run the test.

v0.2 released!

I wrote it in an hour today to make it easier to deal with test failures. Then I figured I'd turn it into a real project so friends could use it. Now you can use it, too!

I originally released v0.1 (the first release) and then noticed on PyPI that the description was a mess, so I fixed that and released v0.2.

To install:

pip install pytest-wholenodeid

It runs automatically. If you want to disable it temporarily, pass the --nowholeid argument to pytest.

More details on exactly what it does on the PyPI page.

If you use it and find issues, write up an issue in the issue tracker.
