This package installs one command: createcoverage that runs your tests with coverage.py and opens the coverage reports in your browser. All with just one single handy command.
Assumption: you're using buildout. Or rather, the assumption is that you have a bin/test command that runs all your tests.
No options are passed to coverage.py, so any extra options you want to give to coverage must be put in a .coveragerc in your buildout's root. This is a good idea in any case :-) An example .coveragerc that omits code you normally don't want to include in a coverage report:
[report] omit = /home/*/.buildout/eggs/* /usr/* parts/* eggs/* */test*
Installing createcoverage in a zc.recipe.egg section is enough. Createcoverage itself depends on coverage.py and makes sure bin/coverage is created:
[console_scripts] recipe = zc.recipe.egg eggs = createcoverage
Code, bugs, ideas
The code is hosted at bitbucket: https://bitbucket.org/reinout/createcoverage .
You can also report issues and bugs and ideas there. Pull requests are of course also very welcome :-)
The first time, you'll have to run the "bootstrap" script to set up setuptools and buildout:
$ python bootstrap.py
And then run buildout to set everything up:
(On windows it is called bin\buildout.exe).
You'll have to re-run buildout when you or someone else made a change in setup.py or buildout.cfg.
The current package is installed as a "development package", so changes in .py files are automatically available (just like with python setup.py develop).
Tests can always be run with bin/test or bin\test.exe.
