Add additional directories to sys.path for nose.

You can install it with easy_install nose-pathmunge

What It Does

nose-pathmunge is a plugin to the nose test framework which provides a method to add directories to the sys.path of nose, which is inherited by the tests running within nose.

This itch stems from in many of my own cases, the need to add modules to a given run (dependencies) that I don’t want to install because they’re synced from a source control system, and change frequently.

This plugin is extremely simple. It’s meant to be.

Usage

Usage is simple - install the package, and then execute nosetests like this:

nosetests --with-path=/home/jesse/src --with-path=/other/dir

Remember the rules when appending directories to your path - you should add the directory above a module - not the module directory itself, and there needs to be a valid __init__.py file. For example, the following project layout in subversion:

myproj/
    src/
        mymodule/
            __init__.py
            foobar.py

You would add this like this:

nosetests --with-path=/home/jesse/src/myproj/src

This would add mymodule/... to the sys.path for the tests to be able to import.

Command line options

After it is installed, the plugin adds the following command line flags to nosetests:

--with-path=TESTCONFIG  Additional directories to add to the nose sys.path
                        [NOSE_ADDITIONAL_PATHS]

You can pass in as many paths as you like. I suggest 3, as that’s a pleasant number.
