As of 0.10.3 (metaclass bugfix) you can create an abstract class for
your tests to specify attributes. For example:
def __new__(cls, name, bases, dct):
for key, val in dct.items():
if key.startswith('test') and inspect.isfunction(val):
# add a UI attribute
dct[key].UI = True
return type.__new__(cls, name, bases, dct)
"""A User Interface test case"""
__metaclass__ = UITestType
# setup twill or selenium, etc
then from the command line:
$ nosetests -a UI
will run all tests that subclass UITest.
Unfortunately we didn't get around to adding a simple metaclass type
for this and documentation to point out this strategy.
