How do I configure PyCharm's Coverage checker to recognize .coveragerc?
There is a feature request for this at https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-16945
You can make PyCharm use the
.coveragerc by putting it into the working directory you run your tests from.
The feature request from https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/PY-16945 was implemented and works in version 2018.1.
There is a different way to make PyCharm ignore certain files and folders:
Project: ... -
Project Structure. Here you can mark folders as
Excluded or exclude files specifically.
PyCharm`s code coverage reports ignores all those exluded files, too.
