Behavior-driven testing (BDT) support in python

Today Sidnei called my attention to Pyccuracy and Behavior-driven Testing

I decided to give it a try.

Started by repackaging the unofficial ubuntu packages I found in http://deb.gabrielfalcao.com/unstable/ in my PPA (basically, for fun).


There you can find python-pyccuracy and its dependencies (python-pyoc and python-selenium).

Install python-pyccurancy.

$ sudo apt-get install python-pyccuracy

Install the Selenium RC, if you don't have it yet, and run the server.

$ wget http://release.seleniumhq.org/selenium-remote-control/1.0.1/selenium-remote-control-1.0.1-dist.zip
$ unzip selenium-remote-control-1.0.1-dist.zip
$ java -jar selenium-remote-control-1.0.1/selenium-server-1.0.1/selenium-server.jar

Then you can use pyccuracy_console to run its own test suite which uses BDT.

$ pyccuracy_console -d /usr/share/pyccuracy/tests/acceptance/action_tests/ -p "*en-us.acc"

To be continued ...
