PTTT updates

Several people updated the Python Testing Tools Taxonomy Wiki page in the last couple of months. Here are some tools that were added:
  • pywinauto (added by its author Mark McMahon): "Simple Windows (NT/2K/XP) GUI automation with Python. There are tests included for Localization testing but there is no limitation to this. Most of the code at the moment is for recovering information from Windows windows and performing actions on those controls. The idea is to have high level methods for standard controls rather then rely on Sending keystrokes to the applications."
  • svnmock (added by its author Collin Winter): "enables easier testing of Python programs that make use of Subversion's Python bindings."
  • testosterone (added by its author Chad Whitacre): "an interface for running tests written with the Python standard library's unittest module. It delivers summary and detail reports on TestCases discovered in module-space, via both a command-line and a curses interface. The interactive mode is the default, but it depends on the non-interactive mode. For debugging, static tracebacks and interactive Python debugger (Pdb) sessions are available in both scripted and interactive modes."
  • Bitten (added by Matt Good, written by Christopher Lenz): "a Python-based framework for collecting various software metrics via continuous integration. It builds on Trac to provide an integrated web-based user interface."
  • pyMetrics (added by Mark Garboden, written by Reginald B. Charney): "produces metrics for Python programs. Metrics include McCabe's Cyclomatic Complexity metric, LoC, %Comments, etc. Users can also define their own metrics using data from PyMetrics. PyMetrics outputs SQL command files and CSV output."
  • trace2html (added by its author Olivier Grisel): "utility to convert execution coverage data obtained with the `trace` module of the standard python library into a set of human
    readable HTML documents showing sortable summary and annotated source files."
  • pyAA (added by myself, written by the Carolina Computer Assistive Technology group at UNC-Chapel Hill): "an object oriented Python wrapper around the client-side functionality in the Microsoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) library. MSAA is a library for the Windows platform that allows client applications inspect, control, and monitor events and controls in graphical user interfaces (GUIs) and server applications to expose runtime information about their user interfaces. See Peter Parente's User interface automation with pyAA tutorial for more info."
