test exclusion for nose with blacklists

Project description

nose-blacklist is a plugin for nose that provides a powerful way of skipping tests without requiring code changes.

  • Test cases are excluded by regex matching

  • Tests cases are matched by their fully-qualified names, including the module, class, and function/method names.

  • Tests to skip can be sourced from one or more files, or from cli arguments


$ pip install nose-blacklist

$ nosetests --with-blacklist \
    --blacklist=<pattern1> \
    --blacklist=<pattern2> \

Blacklist strings can be specified from one or more files. Blacklist files can be used in conjunction with the --blacklist arguments.

$ cat blacklist.txt
# test_other_thing

$ nosetests --with-blacklist \
    --blacklist-file=blacklist.txt \

The blacklist file should have a single pattern per line, as above. Any line starting with a # is commented and will be ignored.
