python-coverage - measure code coverage of Python program execution
python-coverage command [ option ... ] python-coverage help [ command ] python-coverage help classic
python-coverage executes a Python program, measures which of its statements are executed and which are not, and reports these coverage measurements.
python-coverage annotate Annotate source files with execution information. python-coverage combine Combine a number of data files. python-coverage erase Erase previously collected coverage data. python-coverage help Get help on using coverage.py. python-coverage html Create an HTML report. python-coverage report Report coverage stats on modules. python-coverage run Run a Python program and measure code execution. python-coverage xml Create an XML report of coverage results.
--help, -h Describe how to use Coverage, in general or a command. --rcfile RCFILE Specify configuration file RCFILE. Defaults to .coveragerc. --omit PATTERN ... Omit files when their filename matches one of these PATTERNs. Usually needs quoting on the command line. --include PATTERN ... Include files only when their filename path matches one of these PATTERNs. Usually needs quoting on the command line.
annotate Options: -d DIR, --directory DIR Write the output files to DIR. -i, --ignore-errors Ignore errors while reading source files. combine Combine data from multiple coverage files collected with run -p. The combined results are written to a single file representing the union of the data. erase Erase previously collected coverage data. help [ command ] Describe how to use Coverage. help classic Describe help on older command syntax. html [ option ... ] [ MODULE ... ] Create an HTML report of the coverage of each MODULE file. Each file gets its own page, with the source decorated to show executed, excluded, and missed lines. Options: -d DIR, --directory DIR Write the output files to DIR. --title TITLE Use the text string TITLE as the title on the HTML. --fail-under MIN Exit with a status of 2 if the total coverage is less than MIN. -i, --ignore-errors Ignore errors while reading source files. report [ option ... ] [ MODULE ... ] Report coverage statistics on each MODULE. Options: --fail-under MIN Exit with a status of 2 if the total coverage is less than MIN. -i, --ignore-errors Ignore errors while reading source files. -m, --show-missing Show line numbers of statements in each module that weren't executed. run [ options ... ] PROGRAMFILE [ program_options ] Run a Python program PROGRAMFILE, measuring code execution. Options: -a, --append Append coverage data to .coverage, otherwise it is started clean with each run. --branch Measure branch coverage in addition to statement coverage. --debug DEBUGOPT,... Debug options DEBUGOPT, separated by commas -L, --pylib Measure coverage even inside the Python installed library, which isn't done by default. -p, --parallel-mode Append the machine name, process id and random number to the .coverage data file name to simplify collecting data from many processes. --timid Use a simpler but slower trace method. Try this if you get seemingly impossible results! --source SOURCE ... A list of packages or directories of code to be measured. xml [ options ... ] [ MODULES ... ] Generate an XML report of coverage results on each MODULE. Options: --fail-under MIN Exit with a status of 2 if the total coverage is less than MIN. -i, --ignore-errors Ignore errors while reading source files. -o OUTFILE Write the XML report to OUTFILE. Defaults to coverage.xml.
COVERAGE_FILE Path to the file where coverage measurements are collected to and reported from. Default: .coverage in the current working directory. COVERAGE_OPTIONS Space-separated series of command-line options to python-coverage. Default: empty.
The python-coverage command is a Python program which calls the coverage Python library to do all the work. The library was originally developed by Gareth Rees, and is now developed by Ned Batchelder. This manual page was written by Ben Finney <email@example.com>.
