Seems to require python2-packaging; when invoking it I get:

Okay guys! Thanks! :D

Hi @semeion,

My recommendation is also to use yay:

pacman -Syu base-devel
git clone
cd yay
makepkg --syncdeps --rmdeps --install

After that, you can just use it the same way you would use pacman, it will install packages from AUR with all necessary dependencies:

yay -Syu python2-pytest

@semeion, you can use an AUR helper like yay, that's also a way to keep these packages upgraded. There are the indirect dependencies as well, so these are not just 11. But you can also install all of them manually with makepkg, if you wish (of if something goes wrong and you need to tweak the PKGBUILD).

Due to a small change in python2-pathlib2, now the pytest2 and py.test2 entry points are working, as well.

How to install it? I need manually install each dependenc using AUR? Seriously? 11 depends? LOL

Restored! I've just published all dependencies of pytest (for Python 2) here in AUR. Use python2 -m pytest to run it.
