BAlto is a Language independent Test Orchestrator is an unique tool to drive
all your test-runners with one common interface.
Install balto with pipx:
pipx install balto
You should see at the end of the command:
These binaries are now globally available - balto - balto-curses - balto-server done! ✨ 🌟 ✨
It is highly recommended to avoid installing Balto in either your global Python environment or a virtual environment as it might causes conflicts with some dependencies.
To use it, point balto to a directory containing a
.balto.toml file should look like:
name = "Acceptance Test Suite Subprocess" tool = "pytest"
If you just want to give Balto a try, you can use the
--tool to indicate which tool you want to use. For example:
balto --tool pytest tests
The tool must be one of the supported one, you can see the list here: https://github.com/lothiraldan/litf#compatible-emitters
You can test balto against examples for supported test runners. Clone this repository and launch
balto against one of the examples directories. For

Balto is composed of two components: the server and the web interface.

Balto-server is a Python 3.7 project using Asyncio. To build the development version, first create a virtualenv (or equivalent):
virtualenv .venv source .venv/bin/activate
Install the project in development mode:
pip install -e .
Then start the server:
balto-server --debug examples/pytest/
The server will start on port 8889.
The web interface is a React project communicating with the server using WebSockets. You can start developing on it with these instructions:
cd balto/web_interfaces/balto_react yarn start
The web interface is then available on http://localhost:3000/ and will connect to the server started before.
Warning: the WebSocket doesn't auto-reconnect yet, sometimes your React modification requires you to reload your browser tab.
