Extensible Python Test Runner

Project description

Wheel Status Build status Coverage status

haas is a Python test runner that is backward-compatible with Python’s built-in unittest Test Cases, but supports more advanced features, such as project-specific plugins.


  • Runs unittest.TestCase based tests!
  • Plugin system, based on stevedore.
    • Still subject to change and revision to clean the plugin APIs.
    • Plugins for whole-test-run environment configuration (run before any client-code is imported).
    • Plugins for test result output formatting.
    • Plugins for test runner scheme (e.g. parallel runner)
  • Generic test result collection, presentation & output handled by plugins.
  • (Very) Basic parallel test run support.

Missing (unittest) Features

  • Does not support the unittest.load_tests protocol.
  • Does not support subtests.

Future Features

  • Per-project config file
  • Improve parallel test runner to allow conditional splitting of tests, or allow tests to be run in the main process.
  • Improve plugin system
  • More result output plugins/options (xunit, result summary)
  • … ?
