pytest-cookies is available for download from PyPI via pip:

$ pip install pytest-cookies

It will automatically install pytest along with cookiecutter.


The cookies.bake() method generates a new project from your template based on the default values specified in cookiecutter.json:

def test_bake_project(cookies):
    result = cookies.bake(extra_context={'repo_name': 'helloworld'})

    assert result.exit_code == 0
    assert result.exception is None
    assert result.project.basename == 'helloworld'
    assert result.project.isdir()

It accepts the extra_context keyword argument that will be passed to cookiecutter. The given dictionary will override the default values of the template context, allowing you to test arbitrary user input data.

Please see the Injecting Extra Context section of the official cookiecutter documentation.
