If you experience information overflow on the terminal when using
entr then we
might recommend running it with the clear (
-c) flag like so;
ls checking/*.py | entr -c pytest test.py::test_starts_correctly
One of the most repetitive actions was to clear the screen before running tests; hence
-c flag will clear the screen every time an update happens. That should make
the experience much more calm.
For more details on practical settings we recommend reading the project page.
