My earlier attempts to put some tasty wrap around pyunit have come to fruition. In an early version but hopefully somewhat usable nonetheless, is badrabbit. I hope it proves useful to others as well as to me.
1. Elegance is not a dispensable luxury but a quality that decides between success and failure
2. The purpose of abstracting is not to be vague, but to create a new semantic level in which one can be absolutely precise
I’ve been trying to get common_test working with code coverage and one of the more esoteric (annoying!?) issues I’ve run into is that the cover tool doesn’t work properly with packages. There is a workaround, which I mention here, but that will only fix the problem with cover. In addition to this, the ct_cover module will produce reports without proper links to coverage info unless you copy the source code over the corresponding ebin directories. It would be *really* nice if this got sorted out.
