tox.el is an Emacs mode interface to tox the virtualenv-based automation of test activities, see https://pypi.python.org/pypi/tox
In python mode if you are on a test and do
M-x tox-current-test the
current test will be launched with tox in a compilation buffer. Use
M-x tox-current-class to test the current class.
With a prefix to the test function
tox.el will ask you for a tox
environement (which is by default what specified in
parsing your tox.ini.
tox is pretty flexible with the underlying test runner, the calling argument can get different depending of which test runner you are using.
tox.el will call the test like the way python-nose is expecting to have :
sometime you may use testr which expect only dot and not collon, you can then setup the variable
tox-use-all-dot-style to tru to get this behavior :
tox.el support py.test. You could change the
tox.el runner by setting the
tox-runner variable :
(setq tox-runner 'py.test)
You may want to set that per-project within your project's
Using a .dirs-locals.el at the top directory of your project makes it easier to run your tests and not getting aksed by a tox target everytime. Here is an example setting the py27 as the default environment have set the
((nil . ((tox-default-env . "py27") (tox-use-all-dot-style . t))))
You can install
MELPA with package.el
M-x package-install tox).
And you can also install it with el-get.
