Other than these two, do you use all of the other nine testing tools? I think many of you are using unit testing tools, such as unittest and doctest, and source code checking tools, like pylint or pychecker. Do you guys use #2,3,5,8,9,10 and 11 often?

I found the python's unittest framework lack good reporting tools. 

For my project (www.srcmap.com), I want something that does high level features integration tests, scriptable, generate report in HTML table format that label pass ->Green, fail -> Red.   Separate by scripts, commands runs, etc.

  In python, it is so trivial to write you own.  It parse the json test scripts and execute the commands inside one at a time.  It works very well.
