conttest

Continuous testing helper, adapted from [1], but which makes no assumption about what tests you might want to run continuously while developing. For more information, see this blog post.

Any command supplied to the script will be run once and then repeated any time a file in the current working directory changes, except for files excluded using .conttest-excludes as described below.

Note that ANY command you supply the script will be run, so be careful. You have been warned!

Installation

./setup.py install  # from source

or

pip install conttest  # use sudo if installing globally

Usage examples

conttest nosetests
conttest 'nosetests -q && pep8 -r .'

Placing a file .conttest-excludes in the current working directory will exclude subdirectories, e.g.:

.svn$
.git
build
vendor/elastic*
install

will match files against the listed regular expressions and skip checking for changes in those directories. This can save quite a bit of time and CPU during normal operation.
