Carinata is a command line tool which transforms spec files into unittest cases. It tries to be a bit like RSpec, but for python. It includes a management command for Django.
Spec files contain blocks called describe, context, before, after, let and it, which in turn contain pure python. Carinata uses these blocks to create a TestCase corresponding to each it block, with the setup from before and let and the teardown from after.
See the project homepage on GitHub for more information, but here is an example:
describe "My Awesome class": context "with the number 42": let "awesome": Awesome(42) it "jumps for joy": assert self.awesome.jumps_for_joy() context "with a string": let "awesome": Awesome('wow!') it "says it": assert self.awesome.say() == "Awesome says 'wow!'"
