Twisted Trial and Jenkins
It's not completely obvious how to configure a Twisted-based job that uses Trial for running tests in Jenkins, so hopefully this post will save somebody a little time in the future.
Jenkins needs JUnit-style XML file to parse test results. You can get that output from Trial, if you pass the results thought subunit with junitxml.
Debian-based distributions have those two modules packaged, so you can install them with
apt-get install python-subunit python-junitxml
Elsewhere you can use
pip install python-subunit junitxml
Then in your Jenkins configuration, you can use the following command and let Jenkins know to collect the test results from
trial --reporter=subunit MYPACKAGE | subunit-1to2 | subunit2junitxml >results.xml
UPDATE: compatibility with the latest subunit
