virtualenv-based automation of test activities
What is Tox?
Tox is a generic virtualenv management and test command line tool you can use for:
- checking your package installs correctly with different Python versions and interpreters
- running your tests in each of the environments, configuring your test tool of choice
- acting as a frontend to Continuous Integration servers, greatly reducing boilerplate and merging CI and shell-based testing.

#p450: Stop after the first installdeps and first testenv create hooks succeed. This changes the default behaviour of tox_testenv_create and tox_testenv_install_deps to not execute other registered hooks when the first hook returns a result that is not None. Thanks Anthony Sottile (@asottile).
New command line parameter: -a show all defined environments - not just the ones defined in (or generated from) envlist.
New verbosity settings for -l and -a: show user defined descriptions of the environments. This also works for generated environments from factors by concatenating factor descriptions into a complete description.
Note that for backwards compatibility with scripts using the output of -l it’s output remains unchanged.
Thanks Gábor Bernát (@gaborbernat).
