Our test framework uses pytest. At present, the tests for widgyts are located in the widgyts/widgyts/tests/ directory. To run the tests, you can execute:

$ pytest

in the top level widgyts directory. Alternatively, you may choose to run a single file of tests, which can be run using:

$ pytest ./widgyts/tests/

Finally, you can choose to run a single test by calling the specific class and function that run the test within the file by:

$ pytest widgyts/tests/
