using Testing Tool to run tests with django testrunner

  • retag add tags

Hello To test some modules I need to use the django test runner as describes here:… Using the Django test runner to test reusable applications¶

I added the module in the testing tool but when I click on runtests it shows : could not read any output from test runner. I would like to be able to use the testing tool to run or debug the testCase one by one.

I thank yu in advance for your haelp.

If I understand correctly, the example in the Django documentation is a python file that creates a Django test runner and then uses it to run tests. Wing does not support this in the testing tool because it creates a custom test runner (a subclass of the Django runner) in order to work with the Wing IDE process.

It should be possible to debug or execute the file as a standalone file outside of the testing tool. Another approach would be to use the pytest-django and write pytest tests; there may be a similar package / method for writing tests that use the unittest test runner rather than the Django test runner.
