Event reference

class nose2.events.CommandLineArgsEvent(args, **kw)[source]

Event fired after parsing of command line arguments.

Plugins can respond to this event by configuring themselves or other plugins or modifying the parsed arguments.

Note

Many plugins register options with callbacks. By the time this event fires, those callbacks have already fired. So you can’t use this event to reliably influence all plugins.

args

Args object returned by argparse.

class nose2.events.CreateTestsEvent(loader, testNames, module, **kw)[source]

Event fired before test loading.

Plugins can take over test loading by returning a test suite and setting handled on this event.

loader

Test loader instance

names

List of test names. May be empty or None.

module

Module to load from. May be None. If not None, names should be considered relative to this module.

class nose2.events.CreatedTestSuiteEvent(suite, **kw)[source]

Event fired after test loading.

Plugins can replace the loaded test suite by returning a test suite and setting handled on this event.

suite

Test Suite instance

class nose2.events.DescribeTestEvent(test, description=None, errorList=False, **kw)[source]

Event fired to get test description.

test

The test case

description

Description of the test case. Plugins can set this to change how tests are described in output to users.

errorList

Is the event fired as part of error list output?

class nose2.events.Event(**metadata)[source]

Base class for all events.

metadata

Storage for arbitrary information attached to an event.

handled

Set to True to indicate that a plugin has handled the event, and no other plugins or core systems should process it further.

version = '0.4'
class nose2.events.GetTestCaseNamesEvent(loader, testCase, isTestMethod, **kw)[source]

Event fired to find test case names in a test case.

Plugins may return a list of names and set handled on this event to force test case name selection.

loader

Test loader instance

testCase

The unittest.TestCase instance being loaded.

testMethodPrefix

Set this to change the test method prefix. Unless set by a plugin, it is None.

extraNames

A list of extra test names to load from the test case. To cause extra tests to be loaded from the test case, append the names to this list. Note that the names here must be attributes of the test case.

excludedNames

A list of names to exclude from test loading. Add names to this list to prevent other plugins from loading the named tests.

isTestMethod

Callable that plugins can use to examine test case attributes to determine whether nose2 thinks they are test methods.

class nose2.events.HandleFileEvent(loader, name, path, pattern, topLevelDirectory, **kw)[source]

Note

This event is fired for all processed python files and modules including but not limited to the ones that match the test file pattern.
