Sublime Text 3 package for running python unit tests.

This first release only comes with built-in support for nose2.

The output coloring is based on the theme and language files from


This plugin can be installed using package control, or manually. To install manually, clone this repository inside of your sublime packages directory.


PythonTest runs python tests and shows the output in an output panel. In the panel, filenames in tracebacks are highlighted, and you can double-click them to go to the file and line mentioned.

Tests may be run individually or in groups.

To run individual tests, in a python unit test module, put a caret in some tests and press "ctrl-c,." to run them. Every test method (or test function) containing a caret point will be run, and only those.

To run all of the tests in a module, ensure the caret is outside of any test method or function and press "ctrl-c,."

To run all of the tests in a project, press "ctrl-c,t" while viewing any python source file.


In the global section of a project file, PythonTest respects the python_interpreter setting and will use the interpreter path set there to construct command paths when given a relative command path (see below for how to change that).

You can customize the plugin's behavior by adding a python_test section to a project file. In that section, the following settings may be specified:

*command: "nose2" (default) or the name of or path to a test comman. The test command is executed in a shell, so it may include arguments, for instance python ./ test is a valid command setting.

*ignore_interpreter: False (default). Set to True to ignore the python_interpreter setting.

*working_dir: project root (default) or the path to the directory where test commands should be executed

*quiet: True (default) to hide test command details in output

*color_scheme: "light" (default) or "dark" or a .tmTheme or .hidden-tmTheme filename

*syntax: "unittest" (default) or Specify a .tmLanguage file to set the syntax highlighting language for test output

You can’t perform that action at this time.
