Python's unittest discover does not find my tests!
I have been using nose to discover my unit tests and it is working fine. From the top level of my project, if I run
Ran 31 tests in 0.390s
python -m unittest discover
Ran 0 tests in 0.000s
[other app modules]
[other test modules]
The behaviour is intentional, but the documentation could make this clearer. If you look at the first paragraph in the test discovery section, it says
For a project’s tests to be compatible with test discovery they must all be importable from the top level directory of the project (in other words, they must all be in Python packages).
A corollary to that is that the file names must also be valid Python module names.
test-report.py fails that test, since
test-report is not a legal Python identifier.
A docs bug suggesting that this be mentioned explicitly in the documentation for the
-p pattern option would probably be a good way forward.
