Getting started with nose2


The recommended way to install nose2 is with pip

pip install nose2

Running tests

To run tests in a project, use the nose2 script that is installed with nose2:


This will find and run tests in all packages in the current working directory, and any sub-directories of the current working directory whose names start with ‘test’.

To find tests, nose2 looks for modules whose names start with ‘test’. In those modules, nose2 will load tests from all unittest.TestCase subclasses, as well as functions whose names start with ‘test’.

The nose2 script supports a number of command-line options, as well as extensive configuration via config files. For more information see Using nose2 and Configuring nose2.
