go test in my pkg directory and I get the test results printed to the console as they run, but it would be ideal if I could get them printed to a txt file or even a html file, is it possible to do this? I know you can get coverage reports out from it and generate html files for those which is excellent, but I would have thought it possible to do the same just for the actual results of the tests i.e which tests ran, which passed and which failed. I've been searching the net but even
go test help doesn't offer any suggestions for printing results out to a file.
2018: Go 1.10+
go tool test2json [-p pkg] [-t] [./pkg.test -test.v=test2json]
Other approaches around
go tool test2json:

TaylorOno/golandreporterGinkgo does not output results in a format which can be converted into JSON (via
go tool test2json, which is used by Goland to get a list of output. This reporter will trick
test2jsoninto outputting the Ginkgo specs similar to go test output.
2015: Since I only want to see failed test, I have this script "
gt" that I run instead of go test:
go test -coverprofile=coverage.out %*|grep -v -e "^\.\.*$"|grep -v "^$"|grep -v "thus far"
That way, it filters everything but the failed cases.
And you can redirect its content to a file, as mentioned:
gt > test.out
It also generates code coverage, which is why I have another script "
grep -v -e " 1$" coverage.out
That way, I don't even wait for a brower to open, I directly see the list of lines which are not yet covered (ie, which don't end with '
1' in the
