Generating output automatically

Automatically generate files with AutoTest to be assess in the Code Viewer.
It may be desirable to inspect files that are generated during the run of an AutoTest, such as reports or Jupyter Notebooks. By default generated files are not saved, but they will be when you write them to the $AT_OUTPUT directory. The files will then be accessible through the “Autotest output” section of the file browser in the Code Viewer.

Use cases

  • Automatically running Jupyter / IPython Notebooks and displaying them in the Code Viewer.
  • Outputting generated (test) reports (e.g. PDF or HTML files) to be rendered in the Code Viewer.
  • Generating screenshots of GUI (graphical user interfaces) to manually assess these.
