Running Matlab and GNU Octave via Pytest
A software package may have Matlab and Python functions. Plain Matlab code can be included via Pytest for Matlab and GNU Octave. To test the Matlab functions from Pytest, create test_matlab.py:
This assumes the Matlab test script resides in the same directory as “test_matlab.py”.
NOTE: Be sure that Matlab “runtests()” actually picks up the desired tests. We do not want the Matlab output to say
Totals: 0 Passed, 0 Failed, 0 Incomplete. 0 seconds testing time.
not robust for packages
but one might relax that restriction for test files where a clear error will result.
