[TIP] PyTest test directory structure confusion

I’m new to using PyTest. I’ve got a very simple python file, and a very
simple test file for it.
I’ve been having a problem getting a unittest to be able to access the file
it’s trying to test. I’m sure that I don’t have the correct directory
configuration, but at the same time, I’m not sure what the correct
directory configuration should be though.
Page 25 of “Python Testing with PyTest refers to __init__.py files in the
same directory as the test files themselves.
Under Project Structure, This website
states that __init__.py files should NOT be in the same directory as the
__init__.py files have always been the biggest headache for me, as I’ve
never been able to find a clear reference as to what should or shouldn’t
be in those files.
Why is it that some are empty, while others have tons of imports?
I would appreciate if someone could provide a reference as to how a PyTest
project should be structured, where __init__ files should and shouldn’t be,
along with their contents (if any).
