[TIP] nose: rudolf and coverage

I doubt it can be fixed in nose -- nose's reporting layer is not very
flexible, especially when it comes to plugins having to interact with
each other. You might have more luck updating rudolf to work with
nose2, which is better about both of those things.

The "rudolf" plugin[1] provides nose output with pretty colors, but says that it's incompatible with plugins that use the .report() plugin method, including the coverage plugin, due to an issue with nose. The plugin also hasn't been updated since 2007, and it looks like some kind soul has updated the plugin and uploaded it to PyPI as "rudolf2" [2]. It appears that rudolf2 is still incompatible with coverage, but it no longer documents that.
