setuptools_trial Manual
=======================

About
-----

This is a plugin for setuptools that integrates Twisted trial.  Once
installed, "python ./setup.py trial" will run the package's unit tests
using Twisted trial.  The package can also optionally be configured so
that "python ./setup.py test" will use Twisted trial instead of pyunit
a.k.a. unittest.


Installation
------------

With easy_install:

  easy_install setuptools_trial

Alternative manual installation:

  tar -zxvf setuptools_trial-X.Y.Z.tar.gz
  cd setuptools_trial-X.Y.Z
  python setup.py install

Where X.Y.Z is a version number.

Alternative to make a specific package use setuptools_trial without
installing setuptools_trial into the system:

  Put "setup_requires=['setuptools_trial']" in the call to setup() in
  the package's setup.py file.


Usage
-----

To use this plugin, you must first package your python module with
`setup.py` and use setuptools.  The former is well documented in the
distutils manual:

  http://docs.python.org/dist/dist.html

To use setuptools instead of distutils, just edit `setup.py` and
change

  from distutils.core import setup

to

  from setuptools import setup

Once setuptools_trial is installed (either into the system or just for
the current package), then "python ./setup.py trial" will run trial on
the package.

You can then make "python ./setup.py test" use trial instead of pyunit
(unittest) by adding the following stanza to your project's setup.py:

  [aliases]
  test = trial

See also the output of "python ./setup.py trial --help" for usage
options.
