django-nose 1.4.2

Makes your Django tests simple and snappy

django-nose provides all the goodness of nose in your Django tests, like:

  • Testing just your apps by default, not all the standard ones that happen to be in INSTALLED_APPS
  • Running the tests in one or more specific modules (or apps, or classes, or folders, or just running a specific test)
  • Obviating the need to import all your tests into tests/ This not only saves busy-work but also eliminates the possibility of accidentally shadowing test classes.
  • Taking advantage of all the useful nose plugins

It also provides:

  • Fixture bundling, an optional feature which speeds up your fixture-based tests by a factor of 4
  • Reuse of previously created test DBs, cutting 10 seconds off startup time
  • Hygienic TransactionTestCases, which can save you a DB flush per test
  • Support for various databases. Tested with MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Others should work as well.

django-nose requires nose 1.2.1 or later, and the latest release is recommended. It follows the Django’s support policy, supporting:

  • Django 1.4 (LTS) with Python 2.6 and 2.7
  • Django 1.7 with Python 2.7 or 3.4
  • Django 1.8 (LTS) with Python 2.7 or 3.4
  • Django 1.9 (pre-release)

  • Warn against using REUSE_DB=1 and FastFixtureTestCase in docs
  • REUSE_DB=1 uses new transaction management in Django 1.7, 1.8 (scottsexton)
  • Try to avoid accidentally using production database with REUSE_DB=1 (alexjg, eroninjapan)
  • Supported Django versions limited to current supported Django version 1.4, 1.7, and 1.8, as well as relevant Python versions.

1.4.1 (2015-06-29)

1.1 (2012-05-19)

  • Django TransactionTestCases don’t clean up after themselves; they leave junk in the DB and clean it up only on _pre_setup. Thus, Django makes sure these tests run last. Now django-nose does, too. This means one fewer source of failures on existing projects. (Erik Rose)
  • Add support for hygienic TransactionTestCases. (Erik Rose)
  • Support models that are used only for tests. Just put them in any file imported in the course of loading tests. No more crazy hacks necessary. (Erik Rose)
  • Make the fixture bundler more conservative, fixing some conceivable situations in which fixtures would not appear as intended if a TransactionTestCase found its way into the middle of a bundle. (Erik Rose)
  • Fix an error that would surface when using SQLAlchemy with connection pooling. (Roger Hu)
  • Gracefully ignore the new --liveserver option introduced in Django 1.4; don’t let it through to nose. (Adam DePue)

1.0 (2012-03-12)

  • New fixture-bundling plugin for avoiding needless fixture setup (Erik Rose)
  • Moved FastFixtureTestCase in from test-utils, so now all the fixture-bundling stuff is in one library. (Erik Rose)
  • Added the REUSE_DB setting for faster startup and shutdown. (Erik Rose)
  • Fixed a crash when printing options with certain verbosities. (Daniel Abel)
  • Broke hard dependency on MySQL. Support PostgreSQL. (Roger Hu)
  • Support SQLite, both memory- and disk-based. (Roger Hu and Erik Rose)
  • Nail down versions of the package requirements. (Daniel Mizyrycki)
