About subunitdetails:

subunitdetails takes a binary encoded subunit stream, and extracts test details (content object attachments) and saves them to the filesystem.

Using subunitdetails to extract content object attachments:

Invoke the subunitdetails script, with a subunit file name as an argument. It will extract the embedded content objects (test details) from the subunit result, into the current directory:

$ subunitdetails <file_name>

About SubUnit:

SubUnit is a streaming protocol for test results. The protocol is a binary encoding that is easily generated and parsed. By design all the components of the protocol conceptually fit into the xUnit TestCase -> TestResult interaction.

About Test Details:

Details are MIME-based content objects that may be attached to a TestCase. This is done using the testtools library (extensions to Python’s standard unittest lib). It allows you to attach any information that you could possibly conceive of to a test, and allows testtools to use or serialize that information.

Using subunit, the encoded stream can be parsed. Test suite results and attached Details (with MIME-types) can then be retrieved.

Installing subunitdetails:

subunit-details uses standard python packaging via setuptools.
