Simple continuous testing tool

Project description

# 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](http://eigenhombre.com/testing/2012/03/31/ontinuous-testing-in-python-clojure-and-blub/).

**Any command supplied to the script will be run once and
then repeated any time the code in the current working directory
changes.** You may wish to edit the IGNORE_* tuples to suit your
particular setup.

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

easy_install conttest # or use pip instead of easy_install

### 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
install

will skip checking for changes in those directories. This can save
quite a bit of time and CPU during normal operation. Currently this
works for top-level directories only!
