Running Aloe

The aloe helper runs Nose with the Aloe plugin enabled.

aloe accepts the same flags as nosetests and so these are not extensively documented here.


Run only the specified feature files.

-n N[,N...]

Only run the specified scenarios (by number, 1-based) in each feature. Makes sense when only specifying one feature to run, for example:

aloe features/calculator.feature -n 1

Override the class used as a base for each feature.


Run Python tests as well as Gherkin.

-a attr

Run features and scenarios with the given tag. (This is a Nose flag, but works the same for Gherkin tags.)

-a '!attr'

Run features and scenarios that do not have the given tag.
