Ornithology is a Python-based testing framework for HTCondor. It has two major components:

  1. The Python package ornithology, which resides in the HTCondor source tree at /src/condor_tests/ornithology. ornithology provides a Python API for standing up, communicating with, and shutting down a “personal” (i.e., run as a non-root user) HTCondor pool.

  2. pytest integration. pytest is a popular Python testing framework in its own right. ornithology itself does not reference pytest. Instead, integration is provided by pytest support files like src/condor_tests/conftest.py.
