Tavern for REST API Testing in Python

Anyone out there using Tavern for API Automation?

Over a year ago, I looked into using the Python Requests module and “rolling my own” test framework. Now I want to look at the obvious (Python based) alternative: Tavern.

Tavern is a Pytest Plugin for testing HTTP and MQTT base API’s. You can read about it on the official site: https://taverntesting.github.io

As I try it out, I will let you know what I find. In the mean time, I am keen to hear if anyone else has tried Tavern and if you would recommend it, and if not, why not?
