Nose module that reorders tests so the quickest are run first.

Project description

nose-timelimit is a nose plugin that allows you automatically skip tests that are too slow.

It requires at least one run with the whole suite to register the timings. If a test fails timings are not registered for it (thus it will never get skipped).


Just run pip install nose-timelimit or easy_install nose-timelimit.


  • --with-timelimit - Just activates the plugin (will only register timing data).

  • --timelimit=X - Runs only the tests that had previously ran under X seconds. Implies --with-timelimit.

  • --timelimit-silent - Don’t print the duration for each test.


Known to work with nose 1.3, it may work with nose as old as 0.10 - try it.
