I have a project that’s in the pre-release phase, and I’m currently writing tests for critical aspects of the project. I love writing tests; I’m finding lots of little issues that certainly would have come up in the release phase.
As I’m writing these critical tests, I’m identifying lots of tests I’d like to write if the project gets any traction. For those issues, I’m creating blank tests like this:
def test_noncritical_feature(): pass
Is there a well-established way to mark these as blank tests? It’s been really satisfying to see my number of tests grow, but now that I have these blank tests that number doesn’t accurately reflect the number of meaningful tests.
Also, is there a name for these blank tests? I thought that’s what a stub was, but a stub is something different.
