A parallel service for tox

Project description

A command line service that runs your tox tests in parallel, using threading and multicore CPUs.

See your tox environments in a dashboard and automatically watch source folders for file changes and re-run tests.


To install, run

pip install retox

Then from any project that has a tox.ini file setup and using tox, you can simply run


This will start the service, from where you can press (b) to rebuild on demand.

Watching folders

Retox can watch one or many directories for file changes and re-run the tox environments when changes are detected

retox -w my_project_folder -w my_test_folder


This was inspired by the detox project, which was created by the tox development team. I worked and then significantly changed the way it works to support re-running environments with ease
