AnyTest Lint Test

Run any test from Sublime Text

A Sublime Text ¾ package whose main idea is to automatically detect a test framework for the given file and run it. It is a Sublime Text interpretation of the awesome vim-test plugin.

Currently, the following test frameworks are supported (more test frameworks are coming soon):

Language Test framework Identifiers
Elixir ESpec, ExUnit espec, exunit
Go Delve, Ginkgo, Gotest delve, ginkgo, gotest
Java JUnit (with Maven or Gradle) junit
JavaScript Jest, Mocha, Vitest jest, mocha, vitest
Python Behave, Django(including Nose), Mamba, Nose, Nose2, PyTest, PyUnit behave, django, mamba, nose, nose2, pytest, pyunit
Ruby Cucumber, M, Minitest, Rails, RSpec, Test Bench cucumber, m ,minitest, rails, rspec, test_bench
Rust Cargo cargotest
Switft XCTest xctest
Zig Zigtest zigtest

Feel free to open an issue with a test framework request as those test frameworks will be added first.


  1. Install the Sublime Text Package Control package if you don't have it already.
  2. Open the command palette and start typing Package Control: Install Package.
  3. Enter AnyTest.


The main command that the package exposes is any_test_run. It supports 4 scopes:

• suite scope

{ "command": "any_test_run", "args": { "scope": "suite" } }

or AnyTest: Test suite in the command palette.

Runs the whole test suite (based on the current file)

• file scope

{ "command": "any_test_run", "args": { "scope": "file" } }

or AnyTest: Test file in the command palette.

Runs all tests in the current file

• line scope

{ "command": "any_test_run", "args": { "scope": "line" } }

or AnyTest: Test line in the command palette.

Runs the test nearest to the current line(cursor)

• last scope

{ "command": "any_test_run", "args": { "scope": "last" } }

or AnyTest: Test last in the command palette.

Runs the last test

The package tries to detect a test framework based on the current file. When the framework is detected the package generates a command and runs it using the selected runner.
When the edit flag is passed to true then the command can be edited before running.
And finally, if the select flag is passed to true then the auto-detection feature is bypassed and the quick panel with all available test frameworks is shown allowing to select a test framework manually.

The package keeps the 10 last test commands in history that can be accessed with the AnyTest: Show history command.
The history can be cleared with the AnyTest: Clear history command.

The package comes with polyfills for test frameworks that don't have built-in support for running tests for the current line.
All the polyfills have been borrowed from the vim-test plugin and adapted for Sublime Text.

All the package commands can be found in Default.sublime-commands

By default the package doesn't define any key bindings, run Preferences: AnyTest Key Bindings to define your own bindings.


The package can be configured either globally or at the project level. Settings defined at the project level override settings defined globally.

To configure the package at the project level all settings must be added under the AnyTest namespace:

  "folders": [
      "path": ".",
  "settings": {
    "AnyTest": {
      "test_frameworks": {
        "python": "pyunit"
      "python.pyunit.runner": "unittesting"

The package provides schemas for its settings so it is recommended to install LSP-json to have settings autocomplete.

To see all available settings please check AnyTest.sublime-settings

By default, the package iterates through all available test frameworks to detect the one to use. This can be changed with the test_frameworks setting:

"test_frameworks": {
  "python": "pyunit"


"test_frameworks": {
  "python": ["pyunit", "pytest"]

this way all other test frameworks will be ignored.

Also, some languages support specifying test frameworks, for example

"python.test_framework": "pytest"

This won't change the detection process, but if there are multiple candidates the specified one will be used.

Project folders and subprojects

The package supports multiple project folders. It can be very useful when there is a nested folder that contains a separate project. The package can detect this situation and calculate the root path correctly.

Another way to handle nested projects is to use the subprojects settings (usually in the project config)

  "folders": [
      "path": ".",
  "settings": {
    "AnyTest": {
      "subprojects": [
        ["subfolder2", "subfolder2_1"]

A subproject can be either a string or an array of strings(the path separator will be added automatically).


The package comes with 3 runners:

  • command
  • terminus
  • console

The default runner is the command. It uses the built-in Sublime exec command(the command can be configured) to run the test command.
The command runner is a bit limited so it is recommended to install Terminus package and use the terminus runner instead.

The console runner is mostly used for testing/debugging as its main purpose is to output the test command and metadata to the console.

Runners can be activated globally, per language or framework:

"runner": "terminus",
"python.runner": "command",
"python.pyunit.runner": "unittesting"

Please consult with AnyTest.sublime-settings to check all available settings.

There is also the unittesting runner and it should be used to test sublime packages with UnitTesting.
Unfortunately, due to UnitTesting limitations, there is no way to run tests for the current line.
Using unittesting only makes sense with PyUnit test framework, so it is usually activated as:

"python.pyunit.runner": "unittesting"


  • Add more test frameworks (the end goal is to at least support all the test frameworks that vim-test supports)
  • Run tests from the Side Bar (including testing folders)
  • Potentially integrate the package with Sublime Debugger


The easiest way to add a new test framework is to find it in the vim-test repository and try to adapt it.
It is also required to cover the test frameworks with tests. Tests and fixtures can be also found in the vim-test repository

The package uses black, flake8 and isort for linting.


AnyTest is heavily inspired by the vim-test plugin so all credits go to the authors and maintainers of this awesome Vim plugin.
