The features "Execution of unit tests" and "Coverage metrics" and thus the settings "sonar.python.xunit.reportPath" and "sonar.python.coverage.*" will be available in Sonar Python 1.1 (version currently in development)
Path to the pylint executable to use in pylint analysis. Set to empty to use the default one.
It has to be set on Windows, use either masked backslashes or slashes as path separators; examples: C:\\Python26\\Scripts\\pylint.bat or C:/Python/26/Scripts/pylint.bat
Path to the pylint configuration file (relative to project root or absolute) to use in pylint analysis. Set to empty to use the default.
|sonar.python.xunit.reportPath||Project-wide||nosetests.xml||Ant pattern describing the path to unit test execution reports, relative to projects root. Leave unset to use the default ("xunit-reports/xunit-result-*.xml"). The reports have to conform to the junitreport XML format.|
|sonar.python.coverage.reportPath||Project-wide||coverage.xml||Ant pattern describing the path to coverage reports, relative to projects root. Leave unset to use the default ("coverage-reports/coverage-*.xml"). The reports have to conform to the Cobertura XML format.|
|sonar.python.coverage.itReportPath||Project-wide||it-coverage.xml||Ant pattern describing the path to coverage reports for integration tests, relative to projects root. Leave unset to use the default ("coverage-reports/it-coverage-*.xml"). The reports have to conform to the Cobertura XML format.|
Make sure to set up the environment properly (PYTHONPATH etc.) before running the analyzer, if your project requires it.
External report generation
Here is a quick guide how to generate the reports using external tools.
nosetests --with-xunit [tests to execute]
To get a more accurate execution time statistics make sure to use nose 1.1.0 or newer.
Use Ned Batchelders coverage package like this:
coverage erase coverage run --branch --sources=<python packages> <program> coverage xml -i
Make sure to put all packages to measure into the --source parameter. That ensures that coverage will report zero coverage on all untouched files, as you most probably want to. To make this work, make sure to meet two prerequisites:
- use coverage => 3.4
- the packages should be packages, i.e. every directory on the way to the sources should contain an __init__.py file.
Extending Coding Rules using XPath
New coding rules can be added using XPath. See the related documentation.
