The pytest framework is a full-featured Python testing tool that helps you write better programs. The framework makes it easy to write small tests, yet scales to support complex functional testing.

Pytest is one the most widely used Python projects, with over 55,000 different repositories depending on the project, as tracked by Libraries.io. Pytest is also one of the most downloaded projects on PyPI, ranking among the top 40 packages by download count, with over 92 million downloads in the last year alone.

Pytest will be supported by members of the Pytest core team.
