Welcome to nose2

nose2 is the successor to nose.

It’s unittest with plugins.

nose2 is a new project and does not support all of the features of nose. See differences for a thorough rundown.

nose2’s purpose is to extend unittest to make testing nicer and easier to understand.

nose2 vs pytest

nose2 may or may not be a good fit for your project.

If you are new to python testing, we encourage you to also consider pytest, a popular testing framework.
