#23332 closed Cleanup/optimization (wontfix)

Change format of test runner output

Can I change the test runner output format to

main.tests.tests.TimeSlotTestCase.test_creation ... ERROR

instead of

test_creation (main.tests.tests.TimeSlotTestCase) ... ERROR

so that I can easily just copy&paste that line and run the test again without having to remove the brackets () and having to copy the name of the test behind the class and add a .?

Django uses the built-in unittest library of Python, and the test output is entirely handled by unittest. So there is nothing in Django which could be changed to modify this output. The feature request seems reasonable to me, but it would need to be pursued as a change in the Python standard library.

Here an example of testrunner adding color:

My guess would be to use the same hack around TestResult to change the output format.
