is py3 the default name of the testenv below?

Can't we keep that environment?

It's less verbose expecially for dev purposes when there are errors (less scrolling backward to read the errors)...

-> because it skips the coverage report.

Split commits; remove coverage for -dev environment

2 ↗(On Diff #7987)

envlist is only the list of environments that tox runs by default when called with no arguments. It's overridden (and ignored) if you pass the -e option on the command-line. (It's also what's returned by tox -a).

The [testenv] section is the one that is used for default settings. [testenv:foo] is used for settings that are only used for tox -e foo.

Using the plain [testenv] section allows us to run, for example, tox -e py38 to run the tests with Python 3.8, or tox -e pypy3, or tox -e py36-dev, and get a sensible behavior.

You can tweak the settings for different environments in the [testenv] by matching "factors". factors are the bits of the environment name separated by dashes:

  • environment py3 has factors py3
  • environment pypy3-dev has factors pypy3 and dev

All tox settings can be controlled by factors, by prefixing the line with <factor-match>:. This is what happens at line 11: the ipdb dependency is only enabled when using an environment with the dev factor.

Fair enough, although we don't really _need_ a separate environment for that, you can just pass --no-cov to pytest by calling tox -e py3 -- --no-cov.

Thanks and thx for the thorough explanation.

I'm sold on using the --no-cov instead of adding a dev environment if you want to remove it.
