Bug Description

Well, the README is fairly extensive. The setup.py just says
" install_requires = [
". I used nosetests to run them.

testscenarios-0.4 $ PYTHONPATH=. nosetests lib/testscenarios/tests/


Ran 28 tests in 0.019s

FAILED (errors=12)

with lots of

_StringException: Traceback (most recent call last):

testscenarios-0.4 $ PYTHONPATH=. python lib/testscenarios/tests/{the test_*.py files)

yields a blank.

py.test doesn't work

So I presume here this is a case of assumed knowledge, again.
You assume I know how the testsuite is run. I tell you nosetests works for 99 out of a hundred so I ran it with nosetests and it yields as above with

PYTHONPATH=. nosetests lib/testscenarios/tests/


FAILED (errors=15)


testscenarios-0.4 $ PYTHONPATH=. nosetests .


does your testsuite in fact require a major overhaul? Do you wish for a comprehensive log output? Is above sufficient?

Hi thanks for the bug report. The issue is that nose isn't unittest API compatible. I'd welcome tasteful patches to work with nose however.

Changed in testscenarios:
status: New → Invalid

as an aside, master prometh went straight to the Makefile and found the make check entry, which I totally missed, looking for a setup.py test. Oh well, I lived and learnt that lesson one more time
