* v3.0 beta
+ Windows kit.
- Why doesn't setup.py install work? procmon to the rescue?
+ Try installation on Ubuntu.
+ Proper project layout.
+ Code moved to bitbucket.
+ C extension collector
- Ignore certain modules
- Record linenos rather than (file,lineno) pairs in tracer.
x Tricky swapping of collector like figleaf, pycov, et al. (Don't need to do
this with C collector).
- Seems like there should be a faster way to manage all the line number sets in
- If tracing, canonical_filename_cache overlaps with should_trace_cache. Skip
canonical_filename_cache. Maybe it isn't even worth it...
- Record magic number of module to ensure code hasn't changed
- Record version of coverage data file, so we can update what's stored there.
- Record options in coverage data file, so multiple runs are certain to make
- Do I still need the lines in annotate_file that deal specially with "else"?
- API for getting coverage data.
- Instruction tracing instead of line tracing.
- Path tracing (how does this even work?)
- Branch coverage
1: if a:
2: b = 2
3: c = 3
if the coverage data shows 1,2,3, it was if-then. if it's 1,3, then the
missing else was executed.
- Count execution of lines
- Track callers of functions (ala std module trace)
- Method/Class/Module coverage reporting.
- .coverage files that can be kept separate, rather than accumulated.
- Why can't you specify execute (-x) and report (-r) in the same invocation?
Maybe just because -x needs the rest of the command line?
- How will Coverage package install over coverage.py module?
- Support 2.3 - 3.0?
- Use a .coveragerc file to control Coverage without the programmatic API.
- An inference mode that marks lines as executed if they "must have been" executed:
class definitions, etc, when coverage is started after the class is defined.
- Different categories of exclude pragma? So you can enable and disable them
from the command line, to reconsider exclusions.
- Reporting on files never touched by coverage (package completeness)
- Why can't a morf also be a string, the name of a module?
- ignore by module as well as file?
+ HTML report
- Package navigation.
- Rolled-up statistics.
- Syntax coloring in HTML report.
+ Dynamic effects in HTML report.
+ Footer in reports pointing to coverage home page.
+ Baseline grid for linenumber font.
+ Separate out css and HTML.
- New docs, rather than pointing to Gareth's
- Min python version is 2.3.
- Three phases of work:
- Distinction between:
- ignore (files not to collect)
- exclude (lines not to report as missed)
- omit (files not to report)
- Changes from coverage 2.x:
- Bare "except:" lines now count as executable code.
- Double function decorators: all decorator lines count as executable code.
- Document the .coverage file format.
- HTML reporting.
+ Be sure --help text is complete (-i is missing).
+ Host the project somewhere with a real bug tracker: bitbucket.org
- Point discussion to TIP
- PEP 8 compliance?
+ Don't use sys.exit in CoverageScript.
+ Remove singleton
+ Initialization of instance variables in the class.
- pip can't install it: it reads the coverage html page, and finds the kit link,
but then can't handle the root-relative link.
+ Decide on minimum supported version
+ Get rid of the basestring protection
+ Use enumerate
+ Use sets instead of dicts
- Switch from getopt to optparse.
+ Get rid of the recursive nonsense.
+ Remove huge document-style comments.
- Better names:
+ self.cache -> self.cache_filename -> CoverageData.filename
+ self.usecache -> CoverageData.use_file
- More classes:
- Module munging
+ Coverage data files
+ Why are some imports at the top of the file, and some in functions?
+ Get rid of sys.exitfunc use.
+ True and False (with no backward adaptation: the constants are new in 2.2.1)
+ Get rid of compiler module
+ In analyzing code
+ In test_coverage.py
- What does -p (parallel mode) mean with -e (erase data)?
+ Switch to a real test runner, like nose.
+ Test both the C trace function and the Python trace function.
- Tests about the .coverage file.
- Tests about the --long-form of arguments.
+ Tests about overriding the .coverage filename.
- Tests about parallel mode.
+ Tests about assigning a multi-line string.
- Tests about tricky docstrings.
- Coverage test Coverage!
- Tests that tracing stops after calling stop()
- More intensive thread testing.
x Tests about the "import __main__" in cmdline.py
- What happens if the -x script raises an exception?
- Test that the kit has all the proper contents.
