HTML Coverage Reports with GoConveyFor packages that pass all tests, coverage reports are generated and made available by clicking the package name.
February 18, 2014

You asked for it and now you've got it.

For packages that pass all tests, coverage reports are generated and made available by clicking the package name, which in that case becomes a link (provided you've cleared your browser's cache!).

Click the package name

Right now the coverage command that is run is something like this:

$ go test -covermode=set -coverprofile=<package_name>.txt

That command generates a plain text profile used in the following command:

$ go tool cover -html=<package_name>.txt -o <packge_name>.html

...which plunks down an html file which we can link to from the UI.

As you can see above, we use the 'set' covermode as it is more suited for concurrent scenarios and is the cheapest report to generate (thanks to Rob Pike for the advice on that one). We might support other values there if it's wanted (a phrase which here means comment below if you have strong feelings).

Here's what a bit of the report looks like (gradient of grey through green means covered, red means not covered):

Thanks to the go team for the go cover tool!

The coverage profiles and html files are stored at:


Out of the way but available to you if you have plans for them. There's lots you can do with coverage in GoLang. Happy testing!

PS - Brand new shiny UI coming soon to GoConvey... (as if it wasn't good enough already!)

Star Wars Day

One of the most popular and successful movie franchises—by far—is George Lucas' Star Wars. The impact Star Wars has had on the culture of the United States and the rest of the world is incredible. From 1977 on, Hollywood has been producing large, fantastical blockbusters packed with practical and computer-generated special effects. Movies have started being considered based wholly on the merchandise they could sell. Toy laser swords have been selling like hotcakes, and every child finds themselves secretly trying to turn off the light from their bed using the Force.
