The pytest-xdist plugin extends py.test with some unique test execution modes:
* Looponfail:
Run your tests repeatedly in a subprocess. After each run py.test waits
until a file in your project changes and then re-runs the previously
failing tests. This is repeated until all tests pass after which again a
full run is performed.
* Load-balancing:
if you have multiple CPUs or hosts you can use those for a combined test
run. This allows to speed up development or to use special resources of
remote machines.
* Multi-Platform coverage:
you can specify different Python interpreters or different platforms and
run tests in parallel on all of them.
Before running tests remotely, py.test efficiently synchronizes your program
source code to the remote place. All test results are reported back and
displayed to your local test session. You may specify different Python
versions and interpreters.
