Summary

We learned a lot in this chapter about the Nose testing meta-framework.

Specifically, we covered:

  • How Nose finds the files that contain tests, and how you can adapt the process to fit into your organization scheme
  • How to run all of your tests with Nose, whether they are doctest, unittest, or nose-specific tests
  • How Nose enhances the other frameworks with additional support for test fixtures
  • How to use Nose's test functions and non-TestCase test classes

Now that we've learned about Nose and running all of our tests easily, we're ready to tackle a complete test-driven project—which is the topic of the next chapter.
