Dfect 0.1.0 Assertion testing library for Ruby http://snk.tuxfamily.org/lib/dfect
Dfect is an assertion testing library for Ruby that
emphasizes a simple assertion vocabulary, instant
debuggability of failures, and flexibility in composing
Dfect is exciting because:
* It has only 5 methods to remember: D F E C T. * It lets you debug assertion failures interactively. * It keeps a detailed report of assertion failures. * It lets you nest tests and execution hooks. * It is implemented in a mere 313 lines of code.
Version 0.1.0 (2009-04-28)
This release adds new variations to assertion methods, fixes
several bugs, and improves test coverage.
* FranÃ§ois Beausoleil contributed patches for both code and tests! :-)
* Added negation (m!) and sampling (m?) variations to assertion methods. These new methods implement assertion functionality missing so far (previously we could not assert that a given exception was NOT thrown) and thereby allow us to fully test Dfect using itself. * Added documentation on how to insulate tests from the global Ruby namespace.
* The E() method did not consider the case where a block does not raise anything as a failure. --FranÃ§ois Beausoleil * When creating a report about an assertion failure, an exception would be thrown if any local variables pointed to an empty array. * The Dfect::<() method broke the inheritance-checking behavior of the < class method. Added a bypass to the originial behavior so that RCov::XX can properly generate a report about code that uses Dfect. * Added workaround for YAML error when serializing a class object:
TypeError: can’t dump anonymous class Class
* Filled the big holes in test coverage. Everything except the runtime debugging logic is now covered by the unit tests.
