Check test coverage in code with Coveralls

Reading Time : ~ .

Coverage: It is a tool used for measuring the effectiveness of tests, showing the percentage of your codebase covered by tests.

Test Coverage is an important indicator of software quality and an essential part of software maintenance. It helps in evaluating the effectiveness of testing by providing data on different coverage items. It is a useful tool for finding untested parts of a code base. Test coverage is also called code coverage in certain cases.

Test coverage can help in monitoring the quality of testing and assist in directing the test generators to create test cases that cover areas that have not been tested. It helps in determining a quantitative measure of Test coverage, which is an indirect measure of quality and identifies redundant test cases that do not increase coverage.

Benefits of Test Coverage:

Defect prevention in the project.
It creates additional test cases to increase coverage.
It helps in determining a quantitative measure of code coverage, which indirectly measures the quality of the application or product.

Installation: Pip install coverage

coverage run manage.py test

coverage report -m  # provides the report for the tests

Individual app test can be run using the command
