- testing.dec.skipif(skip_condition, msg=None)[source]¶
Deprecated since version 1.21: This decorator is retained for compatibility with the nose testing framework, which is being phased out. Please use the nose2 or pytest frameworks instead.
Make function raise SkipTest exception if a given condition is true.
If the condition is a callable, it is used at runtime to dynamically make the decision. This is useful for tests that may require costly imports, to delay the cost until the test suite is actually executed.
- skip_conditionbool or callable
Flag to determine whether to skip the decorated test.
- msgstr, optional
Message to give on raising a SkipTest exception. Default is None.
Decorator which, when applied to a function, causes SkipTest to be raised when skip_condition is True, and the function to be called normally otherwise.
The decorator itself is decorated with the
nose.tools.make_decoratorfunction in order to transmit function name, and various other metadata.
