How to use Coverage in Django

When you are developing a large project, it is possible to accidentally forget some parts of the code that need to be tested. is a python tool to help you with this.


Use pip or easy_install as you like

pip install coverage 
Starting and uninstalling

To run in a Django project, use the command:

overage run --source='.' test the-app-you-want-to-test

This command will fill in ".coverage" which is located in COVERAGE_FILE and then you can see the results or report. If you need to delete the received data, use the command:

coverage erase
For one file

If you only want to test Python code, then you need to do:

coverage run arg1 arg2 arg3

There are several additional options that you can look at link .
You can learn about templates in the plugins section .

View result

If you want to display results on the command line:

coverage report

For clearer and more convenient reports:

coverage html

To know exactly what part of your code is covered by tests, use the following command:

coverage annotate -d directory-where-to-put-annotated-files

The program will generate the same source code file with additional syntax:

- A line with ">" means that it has been executed.

- A line starting with "!" means that it was not executed.

- A line starting with "-" means that the line has been excluded from the coverage statistics.

Good level of coverage

Good coverage is usually 90%. However, if the result is 100%, this may be a bad signal, since it may be a matter of coverage, and not the quality of the tests.

A few tips:

- Be careful with the quality of your tests.

- Don't slow down your developer speeds for the sake of coverage.

- Use coverage to find unverified code and decide if it deserves coverage.

Exclude code

Sometimes we need to exclude some code that doesn't need coverage. There are several options:

- Specifying files to exclude and skip in .coveragerc.

- Writing in one line of the comment block.

 # pragma: no cover

For example, if you want to exclude generated code from coverage because it must be supported by the generation tool:

def generated_code():   # pragma: no cover

Django - Lesson 059. Saving the selected language in user settings It tries to do language translation in API views. That's why it sends or receives the same API request twice. Do you have any suggestions on this? Example: stripe webhook. "GET /warehouse/…
