Flask-Script commands to integrate with PyZen.

Project description

Flask-Zen is an extension to Flask that allows you to use PyZen via Flask-Script commands. Both a simple test runner command and the standard PyZen auto-runner are provided. You can install the requirements from PyPI with easy_install or pip or download them by hand.


Install the extension with one of the following commands:

$ easy_install Flask-Zen

or alternatively if you have pip installed:

$ pip install Flask-Zen


PyZen exposes two Flask-Script commands: Test and ZenTest. To configure both:

from flaskext.script import Manager
from flaskext.zen import Test, ZenTest

manager = Manager(app)

manager.add_command('test', Test())
manager.add_command('zen', ZenTest())

if __name__ == '__main__':

Any of the command-line options below can be overridden using a keyword argument to the Test or ZenTest constructor:

manager.add_command('zen', ZenTest(nocolor=True, ui='none'))


The Test command will run a single test run and exit. The ZenTest command will run the normal PyZen continuous tester.

-s, --start-dir : default: location of
Base directory for test discovery.
-p, --pattern : default: */tests/*.py;*/
Semicolon separated file globs to use for loading tests.
-v, --verbosity : default: 1
Test runner verbosity.
--nocolor : flag, default: False
Disable colored output.
-u, --ui : only for ZenTest, default: autodetect
Force the use of a specific UI module. Available options are win32, osx, linux, and none.
