Pytest provides you with the capability to create custom markers in order to select or deselect tests more gradually.
Suppose you want to mark all command-line interface-related tests with a custom
To do so, you need to register the marker first in your pytest.ini as follows:
[pytest] markers = cli: mark a test as cli-related.
Now, you can use the marker
cli to mark all command-line interface related tests with it as follows:
import pytest @pytest.mark.cli def test_some_cli_test(): pass
Selecting marked tests is as easy as running:
$ pytest -m cli
... or deselecting them by using pytest's "not"-keyword:
$ pytest -m "not cli"
