Using libvcs?

Do you want more flexbility? Correctness? Power? Defaults changed? Connect with us on the tracker, we want to know your case, we won’t stabilize APIs until we’re sure everything is by the book.

Usage

Install libvcs via the python package manager of your choosing, e.g.

$ pip install libvcs

The pytest plugin will automatically be detected via pytest, and the fixtures will be added.

Fixtures

pytest-vcs works through providing pytest fixtures - so read up on those!

The plugin’s fixtures guarantee a fresh git repository every test.

Bootstrapping pytest in your conftest.py

The most common scenario is you will want to configure the above fixtures with autouse.

Why doesn’t the plugin automatically add them? It’s part of being a decent pytest plugin and python package: explicitness.

Setting a temporary home directory

import pytest

@pytest.fixture(autouse=True)
def setup(
    set_home: None,
):
    pass
