Making your large test suites life a little easier
nose-bleed is a nose plugin that attempts to stop the pain associated with a large test suite by only running the tests applicable to the changes in your [git] branch.


You will first need to run your test suite with --record-test-coverage, to plot initial function coverage.

Once this is done, nose-bleed will keep coverage up to date everytime it runs itself (j/k this is actually broken atm).

After the coverage has been built, you can commit your changes within a git branch and run --discover to filter out any tests which dont provide coverage for changes. Currently, the changes are based on the "origin/master" branch.

nose-bleed also checks for missing coverage along the way. By default it will raise an error when it hits a code change that has no test coverage. To disable this functionality, you should set --skip-missing-coverage.
