Sample text

Since all three prices are increasing, the is_increasing_trend method should return True. To make this test pass, we need to first add support for storing price history. In the initializer, let us replace the price attribute with a price_history list. price_history = [] [ 30 ] Chapter 2 After making this change, all the tests will now fail, including the ones that were passing before. Only after we complete a few steps will we be able to have the tests pass again. When tests are passing, we can constantly run the tests to make sure we aren't breaking any functionality with our changes.

It checks that its parameter is None. If the parameter is not None, it raises an AssertionError and fails the test. Otherwise, execution continues to the next line. Since that is the last line of the method, the test completes and is marked as a pass. 6. The last segment checks if the module was executed directly from the command line. main() function. This function will scan the current file for all tests and execute them. The reason we need to wrap this function call inside the conditional is because this part does not get executed if the module is imported into another file.

Remember to put the @classmethod decorator on the setupClass method. exchange. [ 36 ] Chapter 2 Otherwise, the tests are simply a matter of constructing a rule and checking the matches method. A (very) quick primer on decorators Decorators are functions that take a function as an input and return another function as an output. Python has a shorthand syntax by which we can say @decorator above a function or method and it will apply the decorator to that function.
