If you are like me, you might get distracted while waiting for your unit tests to complete, and only return to your IDE several minutes later.
On OS X, there is a nifty
say command that makes your Mac say anything you want using text-to-speech. By appending it at the end of a long-running command, you can get a voice notification when it completes.
In the example below, your Mac will say “Unit tests completed” when they are done running:
python manage.py test; say "Unit tests completed"
