Description : test configuration plugin for nosetests
nose-testconfig is a plugin to the nose test framework which provides a
faculty for passing test-specific (or test-run specific) configuration data to
the tests being executed.
Currently configuration files in the following formats are supported:
* YAML (via python-yaml)
* INI (via ConfigParser)
* Pure Python (via Exec)
The plugin is meant to be flexible, ergo the support of exec'ing arbitrary
Python files as configuration files with no checks. The default format is
assumed to be ConfigParser ini-style format.
The plugin provides a method of overriding certain parameters from the command
line (assuming that the main "config" object is a dict) and can easily have
additional parsers added to it.
A configuration file may not be provided. In this case, the config object is an
emtpy dict. Any command line "overriding" paramters will be added to the dict.
