HTML coverage report generator for

Project description


:author: Olivier Grisel

`trace2html` is a utility to convert execution coverage data obtained
with the `trace` module of the standard python library into a set of human
readable HTML documents showing sortable summary and annotated source files.


As usual, you can either use `sudo easy_install -U trace2html` or extract the
archive and run::

$ sudo python install

Sample usage

Use trace2html to directly compute the coverage of a test suite by
specifying the module you are interested in::

$ -w my_module --run-command ./
$ firefox coverage_dir/index.html

Or you can collect coverage data generated with

$ /usr/lib/python2.4/ -mc -C coverage_dir -f counts

Write a report in directory 'other_dir' from data collected in 'counts'::

$ -f counts -o other_dir
$ firefox other_dir/index.html

Use the `--help` option for more details.


`trace2html` is released under the GNU/GPL v2 license (see COPYING.txt for more
details) and uses the

I would not mind relicensing `trace2html` under a more liberal license such as
the Python or ZPL licenses but that would only be useful if someone find or
write a replacement for the WebFX Sortable Table JS file under a similar
license. SortableTable.js is currently under GPLv2.

Bug reports and patches

You can directly send bug reports and patches to my personnal email address::

Or you can use `bzr`__ to branch my repository::

$ bzr branch lp:trace2html

then publish your branch on some site and send me a merge request. Please
follow the `5-minute tutorial`__ if you are new to bzr.


`trace2html` is inspired by the `cobertura project`__ for java programs. It
includes Javascript code from WebFX Sortable Table and Cobertura.
