f7u12 output plugin for the nose testing framework

Project Description

Nose F7U12

Implements PEP-712 style output for the Nose testing framework so that the
output more accurately represents the developer's feelings when blocks of tests
fail. After 7 failures, omit a "U" instead of an "F".


Why? Because I laughed when I first saw PEP-712, and I'd never written a Nose
plugin before.

Thanks to:

* Michael Foord (for tweeting the link in the first place)
* Kumar McMillan (for having a good example to cheat off of/learn from)


From PyPI:

pip install nose-f7u12

From source:

pip install git+git://


nosetests --with-f7u12


$ nosetests --with-f7u12
