[ANN] test-loop 6.0.0

test-loop - Continuous testing for Ruby with fork/eval
6.0.0 GitHub - sunaku/test-loop: MOVED TO sunaku/testr

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?

  • Only consider {test,spec}_helper.rb as overhead, not all
    *_helper.rb files.

  • Give the user freedom to inspect and change the default configuration
    by storing it in a $test_loop_config global variable instead of
    returning the user’s desired configuration as a hash from the user’s
    configuration file.

  • Change the method signature of the after_all_tests lambda function.

  • Add support for growl and xmessage in the after_all_tests example.

  • Add note about disabling class caching in Rails test environment.

  • Add better explanation for the test_file_matchers example.

Happy testing!
