Additional tools for Python coverage

Project Description

This package is a collection of command line tools for coverage to produce verbose reports and/or stats measurements of your test coverage.

Available tools include:

  • coverage-annotate - prints the source code and prefixes each line with + or - depending on wheather it was executed during testing or not;
  • coverage-combine - combines several .coverage data files into one;
  • coverage-diff - compares the annotated sources from two coverage data files to highlight the difference in test coverage between them;
  • coverage-report - report on arbitrary file(s);
  • pickle2json - convert .coverage files from pickle to JSON format; Needs coverage version 4.0 at least;


Use pip to install from PyPI:

pip install coverage-tools
