A base framework to write a simple script for django apps.

Project Description

Eases the writing of a script for pluggable django application.

Such scripts usually provide a runtests() method that handle the test running behaviour.


  • Globally:

    $ pip install django-runtests
  • From the package’s file (using Distribute):


Defining the test setup

In your file, add the following code:

from django_runtests import RunTests

def runtests():
    return RunTests.runtests()

if __name__ == '__main__':

Tweaking the test setup

If you need to tweak some parts (updating configuration, adding options, …), you simply have to extend the RunTests command class:

import django_runtests

class RunTests(django_runtests.RunTests):

    def should_test_app(self, app):
        """Test only applications listed in 'PACKAGE_APPS' setting."""
        from django.conf import settings
        return app in settings.PACKAGE_APPS
