Cheat and get 100% test coverage
In case this is not clear enough: this module is a joke ! Do not use it. It is not dangerous; it is just useless.
Nowadays, every trendy project has a collection of shiny littel badges. They look great, but they can be hard to get. This modules is here to help you to get the 100 % test coverage badge, without any effort.
Download and install
Install (in a virtualenv, if you do not want to mess with your distribution installation system):
python3 setup.py install
pip install fullcoverage
Quick and dirty Debian (and Ubuntu?) package
This requires stdeb to be installed:
python3 setup.py --command-packages=stdeb.command bdist_deb sudo dpkg -i deb_dist/fullcoverage-<VERSION>_all.deb
Let’s say you want to get you module foobar thoroughly covered.
pip install fullcoverage
Enable this plugin. That is, in the .coveragerc file of foobar, have the lines:
[run] plugins = fullcoverage.plugin
Optionnaly, if you want to restrict the test report to your module, you can add, in the same .coveragerc file:
[fullcoverage.plugin] source = foobar
If you already have tests that import all of foobar submodules, that’s it. Otherwise, somewhere in your tests, have the following lines import everything in your module:
import foobar import fullcoverage fullcoverage.import_all(foobar)
That’s it! You can now run your tests:
coverage run --source foobar -m unittest coverage report --fail-under=100
Bugs and Limitations
- Isn’t it dangerous? Are you running every line of a module to get 100 % test coverage? What if you run a line shutil.rmtree('/') ?
This plugins does not run random line of codes. It imports every plugin that is to be covered, but it cheats coverage into thinking they were thoroughly tested, without testing anything. If your module is safe to import, it is safe to use fullcoverage. If your module is not safe to import, fix your module.
- If your plugin is so great, why aren’t you showing off with one of those 100 % coverage badges?
