This package is most useful when installed with:
The master branch of django-nose currently supports Django 1.1. If you need Django trunk support, please check out the django-1.2 branch.
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/jbalogh/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.run_tests'
If you are using django.contrib.gis (GeoDjango) and need a spatial database to run your tests, use the GIS test runner instead:
TEST_RUNNER = 'django_nose.run_gis_tests'
See django help test for all the options nose provides, and look to the nose docs for more help with nose.
South installs its own test command that turns off migrations during testing. Make sure that django_nose comes after south in INSTALLED_APPS so that django_nose's test command is used.
