If your Docker Python build requires system dependencies that are NOT required at runtime, structure your build as follows:

Code coverage is a simple tool for checking which lines of your application code are run by your test suite. 100% coverage is a laudable goal, as it means every line is run at least once. is the Python tool for measuring code coverage.
