Testing: Assert on dev revert strings (ape test)

See original GitHub issue


be able to assert using ape.reverts on the dev revert message (it’s like a special comment in the contract source file).

this feature requires #347 transaction tracing in order to see what line of code the failure occurred on. could also just show the failed line of code directly with the assert, but the dev revert string is useful for coverage testing


with ape.reverts(dev_message="This is a dev message"):

The dev_message should be a mutually exclusive parameter from the existing expected_message.


#347 Look at how brownie did it as an example!
