A companion to the built-in nose.plugins.cover, this plugin will write out an XML coverage report to a file named coverage.xml.

It will honor all the options you pass to the Nose coverage plugin, especially --cover-package.


You can not use both --with-xcoverage and --with-coverage. Using --with-xcover implies --with-coverage

If you want to change the name of the output file you can use --xcoverage-file=FILE (--cover-xml-file from coverage won't work)

As of nose-xcover 1.0.6 --with-xcoverage provides all the functionality of the built-in coverage plugin in addition to Cobertura-style output:

#nosetests --with-xcoverage {{ coverage options }}
nosetests --with-xcoverage --cover-package=myapp --cover-tests
You can’t perform that action at this time.
