Trivial but powerful tips for nosetests

I'm clearly still a nosetests beginner because it was only today that I figured out how to set certain plugins to always be on.

First of all you might like these plugins too:

$ pip install rudolf
$ pip install disabledoc

Docs: rudolf and disabledoc

To get these gorgeous little tricks into every run of nosetests edit the file ~/.noserc and add the following:

[nosetests]
with-disable-docstring=1
with-color=1

That should make your life a little easier.

UPDATE:

I've since managed to shoot myself in both legs with messing around with nosetests plugins because I heavily rely on django-nose in Django. Long story short: be careful if you get strange import related errors!
