django-discoverage 0.3.1

Jannis Leidel and Carl Meyer's django-discover-runner with coverage.

Latest Version: 1.0.0

Adds coverage to Jannis Leidel and Carl Meyer’s django-discover-runner.

Inspired by django-coverage.


One of the objectives of django-discover-runner is to allow separating a Django app’s tests from the code it’s testing. Since tests no longer reside in an app, django-discoverage needs a different way to know which apps to include in the coverage report. It currently collects apps (packages) by looking for an iterable (named by default TESTS_APPS) in three places:

  1. On a TestCase instance in the suite.
  2. In the TestCase subclass’s module (test_*.py by default).
  3. In the TestCase subclass’s immediate package. If MyTestCase is in the package tests.myapp.test_views, the runner inspects tests.myapp. It does not currently traverse parent packages.

Let’s say you had the following test module,

TESTS_APPS = ('blog',)

class MyTestCase(TestCase):
    TESTS_APPS = ('mycoolapp', 'myproject.anothercoolapp')

All modules in the apps blog, mycoolapp, and myproject.anothercoolapp will be included in the report along with any apps listed in

Modules specified in OMIT_MODULES will not, however, appear in the report.


The name of the iterable django-discoverage looks for in the three places listed above.
Modules not to be traced by coverage. See the coverage API documentation for more details.
