Twill is wonderful! Thanks so much for such a useful tool. A couple
1. I had a few snags when installing twill with ez_setup.py. I've
documented how I did it here:
The biggest problem was not knowing where easy_install installed twill.
2. In a similar vein, I would like to install twill's unit tests.
According to the instructions here;
"...To run them, type 'python setup.py test' in the top package
Assuming I've installed twill with easy_install, what constitutes the
top of the package directory? Or do those instructions only apply
if you've installed via the tarball?
3. Feature request: I'm trying to test an existing web site with a
complicated design. It is frequently difficult to tell via visual
inspection of the html which page twill has actually retrieved.
Therefore, I would find it handy if there were an 'open' command that
opened the downloaded html in a specified external browser.
i.e. open <page> <browser>
Where <page> is a url/file and browser is a path to a browser. If
no <page> is specified it opens the last retrieved page. If no
<browser> is specified, it opens with the last specified browser. If
no <page> has been downloaded yet, or no <browser> has been
previously specified, then it returns an error.
