The use of big data and cloud computing solutions in the enterprise world has helped skyrocket Python in popularity. It is one of the most popular languages used in data science, second only to R. It’s also being used for machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems and various modern technologies. So we decided it was a good time to create a Python Pytest extension for Spira.
At Inflectra, we love helping our customers build the best products ever. A key aspect of this philosophy for us has been to foster user choice, so you can choose which tools you want to use to stay productive and get back to building awesome products.
With the help of our intern, Peter, we have crafted a brand-new way to report your Python unit tests into SpiraTest, SpiraTeam, and SpiraPlan. Using pytest – a unit test framework designed for low-overhead and ease-of-use – we have created an incredibly simple way to ensure your code works properly. We provide fine-tuned control over your test runs as well! You can associate a test function in pytest with a test case inside SpiraTest, and even add releases and test sets to your test run as well!
Getting started is quick and simple – it should take less than five minutes! All you need is to install the SpiraTest PyPI package and create a config file, and you’re done! No longer do you need to worry about spending the time to put in test results manually – we’ll handle it for you!
