The script below, adapted from the unittest documentation, shows how to use XMLTestRunner in a very simple way. In fact, the only difference between this script and the original one is the last line:

import random
import unittest
import xmlrunner

class TestSequenceFunctions(unittest.TestCase):
    def setUp(self):
        self.seq = range(10)

    def test_shuffle(self):
        # make sure the shuffled sequence does not lose any elements
        self.assertEqual(self.seq, range(10))

    def test_choice(self):
        element = random.choice(self.seq)
        self.assert_(element in self.seq)

    def test_sample(self):
        self.assertRaises(ValueError, random.sample, self.seq, 20)
        for element in random.sample(self.seq, 5):
            self.assert_(element in self.seq)

Django 1.2

In order to plug XMLTestRunner to a Django project, add the following to your settings.py:

TEST_RUNNER = 'xmlrunner.extra.djangotestrunner.XMLTestRunner'

Also, the following settings are provided so you can fine tune the reports:

Besides the XML reports generated by the test runner, a bunch of useful information is printed to the sys.stderr stream, just like the TextTestRunner does. Use this setting to choose between a verbose and a non-verbose output.
If your test methods contains docstrings, you can display such docstrings instead of display the test name (ex: module.TestCase.test_method). In order to use this feature, you have to enable verbose output by setting TEST_OUTPUT_VERBOSE = 2.
TEST_OUTPUT_DIR (Default: ".")
Tells the test runner where to put the XML reports. If the directory couldn't be found, the test runner will try to create it before generate the XML files.
