Run Tox tests in groups, stopping on errors
test-stages library provides command-line tools that wrap
Python test environment runners such as Tox or Nox,
invoking them so as the various tests are run in parallel, in groups,
as specified on the command line.
This allows the fastest tests to be run first, and the slower ones to
only be started if it makes sense (e.g. if tools like ruff or flake8
did not uncover any trivial syntax errors).
tox-stages tool runs Tox with the specified groups of test
environments, stopping if any of the tests in a group should fail.
This allows quick static check tools like e.g.
ruff to stop
the testing process early, and also allows scenarios like running
all the static check tools before the package's unit or functional
tests to avoid unnecessary failures on simple errors.
The syntax for grouping the test environments to be run is described in the parse-stages library's documentation.
Running Tox tests in groups
tox-stages tool may be invoked with a list of stages specified on
the command line:
tox-stages run command is invoked without any stage specifications,
the tool looks for the
stages list of strings in the
section of the
