django-nose

The PyPI package TravisCI Build Status Coveralls Test Coverage

django-nose provides all the goodness of nose in your Django tests, like:

  • Testing just your apps by default, not all the standard ones that happen to be in INSTALLED_APPS
  • Running the tests in one or more specific modules (or apps, or classes, or folders, or just running a specific test)
  • Obviating the need to import all your tests into tests/__init__.py. This not only saves busy-work but also eliminates the possibility of accidentally shadowing test classes.
  • Taking advantage of all the useful nose plugins

It also provides:

  • Fixture bundling, an optional feature which speeds up your fixture-based tests by a factor of 4
  • Reuse of previously created test DBs, cutting 10 seconds off startup time
  • Hygienic TransactionTestCases, which can save you a DB flush per test
  • Support for various databases. Tested with MySQL, PostgreSQL, and SQLite. Others should work as well.

django-nose requires nose 1.2.1 or later, and the latest release is recommended. It follows the Django's support policy, supporting:

  • Django 1.8 (LTS) with Python 2.7, 3.4, or 3.5
  • Django 1.9 with Python 2.7, 3.4, or 3.5
  • Django 1.10 with Python 2.7, 3.4, or 3.5
  • Django 1.11 (LTS) with Python 2.7, 3.4, 3.5, or 3.6
  • Django 2.0 with Python 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, or 3.7
  • Django 2.1 with Python 3.5, 3.6, or 3.7

Installation

You can get django-nose from PyPI with... :

$ pip install django-nose

The development version can be installed with... :

$ pip install -e git://github.com/django-nose/django-nose.git#egg=django-nose

Since django-nose extends Django's built-in test command, you should add it to your INSTALLED_APPS in settings.py:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'django_nose',
    ...
)

Then set TEST_RUNNER in settings.py:

TEST_RUNNER = 'django_nose.NoseTestSuiteRunner'
