coverage + nose + mako resulting in "No source for code:" on compiled module for template

Issue #365 closed

I'm having trouble tracking this down but something is going on between nose and coverage.

The broken commit is here, where I tried to add coverage reports for our tests, as well as the source package.

Executing the following commands:

$ virtualenv env
$ env/bin/python dev
$ env/bin/coverage erase
$ env/bin/coverage run --source=pyramid_debugtoolbar,tests env/bin/nosetests
$ env/bin/coverage xml
No source for code: '/Users/michael/work/oss/pyramid_debugtoolbar/tests/pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_exception_dbtmako': [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/Users/michael/work/oss/pyramid_debugtoolbar/tests/pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_exception_dbtmako'

The path munging code inside mako is generating pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_exception_dbtmako and someone is turning that into tests/pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_exception_dbtmako.

Note that the original template is at the path pyramid_debugtoolbar/templates/exception.dbtmako.

The weirder parts are that nose's where=tests/ option in setup.cfg breaks this. The following patch will fix everything by specifying the tests folder on the CLI. However, if I use -w tests (effectively the same as the where=tests/) then things break.

In any scenario I can come up with so far running env/bin/nosetests --with-coverage --cover-package=pyramid_debugtoolbar,tests --cover-tests --cover-xml tests dumps out a valid xml file. However, I would like to use the coverage command directly and not through nose.

Please any insight would be helpful as the PylonsProject is investigating using this pattern in many projects.

I tested this against 3.7 and 4.0a5 with the same results.

Looking at env/bin/coverage debug data in both scenarios (coverage run and nosetests --with-coverage) shows the following:

/Users/michael/work/oss/pyramid_debugtoolbar/tests/pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_exception_dbtmako: 81 lines
/Users/michael/work/oss/pyramid_debugtoolbar/tests/pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_exception_summary_dbtmako: 29 lines
/Users/michael/work/oss/pyramid_debugtoolbar/tests/pyramid_debugtoolbar_templates_redirect_dbtmako: 29 lines

However if I remove the -w (the only working scenario described earlier using coverage run), those files are not listed in debug data.

    @Ned Batchelder Obviously it's been a while. I can tell you the behavior in the notes was observed by several other developers on their own machines. We spent several hours going through permutations that would dump out a proper report but in the end I think dropping the -w caused both systems to just ignore the missing coverage on the templates.

    @Bert JW Regeer if you could make the filenames be less misleading, that would be great :) Or give me some other idea about how to handle this. The ideal case is that someone writes a plugin for these template languages. Then you might also get coverage measurement of the templates!
