#3088 enhancement closed duplicate (duplicate)

Make trial able to run tests and modules in a specific order

Reported by: Allister MacLeod Owned by:

When trying to track down some side-effects issues between test modules run by trial, I found myself wishing I could specify the order in which to run modules.

For instance, if I issued the command:

trial tests/ tests/

I would like it to run the monkey tests first and then the uncle tests.

Even more whiz-bang would be a way to specify the order when running all test_ modules in a directory, with possible choices being alphabetical, by modification time, or random.

I could have sworn this was a duplicate of something, but I just looked for like an hour and couldn't find it. If not, this should definitely be fixed. I've had this problem myself.

Really, this is "parametrize the loader from the command line".
