Hacking Weblog

Weblog comes with tests, you can run them from the root of the source directory:


If you plan to modify Weblog, I recommend to install nose a test runner and coverage a tool for measuring code coverage of Python programs. Like Weblog, you can install them with pip or easy_install:

pip install nose coverage

To run the tests:

nosetests --with-doctest --with-coverage --cover-package=weblog
