TDD flow monitor.

Project Description


Help keeping Test Driven Development flow.


Install TddMon:

pip install tddmon

or current development version:

pip install hg+https:://


tddmon -l test_run.log

In above example file will be run like any other module so be sure to put unittest.main() or similar inside it. tddmon will monitor all “.py” files inside current directory for changes in modification time and run test whenever their change.

Monitored files will be measured for coverage. Test results will be logged into log file (test_run.log in example) and on stdout you’ll see your working flow in TDD.

  • red - one or more tests fail
  • green - your tests has passed
  • blue - consecutive run tests has passed; in most cases it means your refactoring your code.

If you want to limit files to measure coverage use .coveragerc as described on coverage module page:


  • option to separately logging test errors and coverage
  • sending flow status and log results to remote server
