What is it?

test-loop is a fast continuous testing tool for Ruby that automatically
detects and tests changes in your application in an efficient manner:

  1. Absorbs the test execution overhead into the main Ruby process.
  2. Forks to run your test files without overhead and in parallel.
  3. Avoids running unchanged test blocks inside changed test files.

What is new?

Bug fixes:

  • Restore support for Ruby 1.8.7.

  • Allow user’s test execution overhead to fork.


  • Freeze master’s ENV properly; keep resume key.

  • Remove completed test from running list sooner.


  • Add instructions to check for POSIX prerequisites.

  • Support multiple test-loop instances in watch command.
