Hi, I’m trying to integrate green into my django tests. Usually after the second test i use the –keepdb argument from command line to save time. I was wondering how can i pass this argument using green, I tried adding this into a config file but I receive a parsing error

configparser.ParsingError: Source contains parsing errors: '<???>'
	[line  2]: '--keepdb\n'

What is the correct way?

Found it. I won’t be able to issue a new release until tonight, but if you would like to hot-patch your local installation of green, here’s the diff:

Thanks, I appreciate it!

Also, thank you for reporting a valid bug! If you would like a free code to my Python Testing with Green course on Udemy, then just let me know what email address you would like me to send the code to. (You can send an email to if you want the code but don’t want to post your email address publicly on github).
