How to use regression tests

**If regression tests are already installed, skip to step 5.

1)Create your test files. 2)Download the plugin package. 3)Change directories into the plugin folder 4)Run `pip install -e .' 5)Run `nosetests --with-regression' where you would normally run

your nose tests

6)??? 7)Profit while you look at your fancy new


At the end of the nosetest output, Nose Regression will print out any tests that used to fail but now pass (if any) and any tests that should pass but happened to fail (if any). All tests are separated and say which module they're from.


-n/--new Run tests that should fail to quickly see if any tests
are now functional
-r/--reg Run tests that shouldn't fail to quickly see if any tests
are now broken
-W Don't write to
-f/--file Specify which file you want to use
(not completely functional)

Inside the file, there's an options dictionary at the top. If you want any options to always run (excluding -f/--file) place the short option as the key and any required values as the value. Currently just leave the value as '' as the only option requiring a value is -f/--file.


This plugin does not yet fully support methods, only functions. Please note this when creating tests you want to use with this plugin.

Thanks for using it! :)
