Coverage.py

Code coverage testing for Python.

Stand with Ukraine

Coverage.py measures code coverage, typically during test execution. It uses the code analysis tools and tracing hooks provided in the Python standard library to determine which lines are executable, and which have been executed.

Coverage.py runs on these versions of Python:

  • Python 3.8 through 3.12, and 3.13.0a3 and up.
  • PyPy3 versions 3.8 through 3.10.

Documentation is on Read the Docs. Code repository and issue tracker are on GitHub.

New in 7.x: experimental support for sys.monitoring; dropped support for Python 3.7; added Coverage.collect() context manager; improved data combining; [run] exclude_also setting; report --format=; type annotations.

New in 6.x: dropped support for Python 2.7, 3.5, and 3.6; write data on SIGTERM; added support for 3.10 match/case statements.
