I try to debug my pytest-cases like this:

import pytest

def test_something()

Then, i execute the tests by running elpy-test. The test starts to run and stops at pytest.set_trace() - unfortunately the compilation buffer is non-interactive and I'm stuck with a debugger that I can't use...

What's the right way to run tests in the debugger, using emacs?


I think that there are only the following solutions:

  • Run tests outside of Emacs from your terminal emulator
  • Run tests from realgud
  • Run tests inside Emacs via eshell. But shell output may be corrupted, so this not a good solution
  • Run tests with pytest-el. It works good, but without autocompletion.
  • I've installed and tried realgut. It's nice, but I don't understand how I can use it to solve my problem :s

  • Run your tests with realgud :) For example you can run tests from Emacs shell and attach it to realgud session.

  • I added information about pytest-el to my answer.
