Improve fail_under by enabling more refined control on threshold

Issue #666 closed
Former user created an issue


I didn't find this option anywhere in the documentation so i hope i haven't missed anything. The idea is that right now we can only set a global minimum threshold percentage on coverage. While this is really useful i suggest coverage could provide a more refined control on this requirement such as per module minimum percentage.

Taking for example jest ( it would be really great if i could set in the report section my requirements like maybe a list of regexes with minimum requirements.

  • api/* -> 40%
  • db/* -> 80%

Thanks in advance

    Interesting idea, but it seems very specialized for something like coverage. A separate tool could look at the coverage report, and make this kind of assessment. Would that work for you?

    Maybe this could be added to pytest-cov although i am not sure whether they would want this or if it is better to support this kind of feature directly in coverage so that all the runners could benefit from it.

    I don;t have a specific tool in mind. It could even be a new tool that you run after coverage, to make a detailed assessment of the results. It doesn't have to be added to anything existing.

    ok right, if you are nonetheless willing to let this go in coverage i could have a look on how to implement this and propose a PR. otherwise i guess i should close the issue :)
