Testing demo: pytest without classes

In the previous example we used a test-class to write our tests, but in reality in many cases we don't need the classes. We could just as well write plain test-functions as in this example.

Test-functions without a class around them are easier to write and understand and they are a lot simplert to graps. So unless you really need the features a class can provide I'd recommend you use functions only. After all our test code should be a lot more simple than our application code.

pip install pytest

import mymath

def test_math():
    assert mymath.add(2, 2) == 4
