detox is unmaintained and incompatible with tox > 3.6
detox was a plugin for
tox to enable parallel environment execution.
tox 3.7 added a native possibility to do this (
tox -p|--parallel) and effectively supercedes detox.
What is detox?
detox is the distributed version of tox. It makes efficient use of multiple CPUs by running all possible activities in parallel. It has the same options and configuration that tox has so after installation can just run:
in the same way and with the same options with which you would run
tox, see the tox home page for more info.
Additionally, detox offers a
--num option to set the number of concurrent processes to use.
NOTE due to the concurrent execution of the testenvs the output of the different testruns is not printed to the terminal. Instead they are logged into separate files inside the
log directories of the testenvs.
