coverage html does not suport --skip-covered

Issue #433 closed
John Allen created an issue

The docs seem to indicate that --skip-covered is common to [report|xml|html], but I can not seem to use this parameter in 4.0.1 and in the current head (Coverage.py, version 4.0.2a1). I'd love to clean up my html reports.

{code} » ~/.local/bin/coverage html --skip-covered no such option: --skip-covered Use 'coverage help' for help. {code}

    Sorry, I didn't mean for the docs to imply that --skip-covered applied to all reporting styles.

    Thanks for the quick response! The line in question that made me confused is "Values common to many kinds of reporting."

    html report --skip-covered with branches #433

    Add a test because the code path is significantly different.

    Also document --skip-covered with the coverage html command.

    close #433

    This option doesn't seem to be available via a configuration file (unless I'm missing something). Would enabling that be difficult to implement?

    @kavanaugh_development Doesn't "[report] skip_covered = True" work for you in the .coveragerc file?

  6. Alex Kavanaugh

    @ned It does. My bad - I assumed [html] skip_covered = True was required for this to work for html output. Carry on!
