  • Integrating Lab Equipment into pytest-Based Tests
    1 project | /r/Python | 4 Oct 2023
    In this blog post I want to demonstrate how my lab equipment such as a lab power supply or a digital multimeter (DMM) have been integrated into some pytest-based tests. Would love to get your feedback and thoughts! 🚀

    Next, you need to install a testing framework that will be used for performing unit testing in your project. Several testing frameworks are available depending on the programming language used to create an application. For example, JUnit is commonly used for Java apps, pytest for Python apps, NUnit for .NET apps, Jest for JavaScript apps, and so on. We’ll use the Jest framework for this tutorial since we are using JavaScript.

    I absolutely agree about fixtures-as-arguments thing. Ward does this a lot better, using default values for the fixture factory. There's a long issue on ideas to implement something like that as a pytest plugin (, but it seems the resulting plugin relies on something of a hack.

  • How to raise the quality of scientific Jupyter notebooks
    9 projects | | 11 Jan 2023
    Since ITK's inception in 1999, there has been a focus on engineering practices that result in high-quality software. High-quality scientific software is driven by regression testing. The ITK project supported the development of CTest and CDash unit testing and software quality dashboard tools for use with the CMake build system. In the Python programming language, the pytest test driver helps developers write small, readable scripts that ensure their software will continue to work as expected. However, pytest can only test Python scripts by default, and errors in untested computational notebooks are more common than well-tested Python code.
