Is there something like ‘autotest’ for Python unittests?

I found autonose to be pretty unreliable but sniffer seems to work very well.

$ pip install sniffer
$ cd myproject

Then instead of running “nosetests”, you run:

$ sniffer

Or instead of nosetests --verbose --with-doctest, you run:

$ sniffer -x--verbose -x--with-doctest

As described in the readme, it’s a good idea to install one of the platform-specific filesystem-watching libraries, pyinotify, pywin32 or MacFSEvents (all installable via pip etc)
