Just a positive experience I would like to share with you : testing is
great on paper but very tedious to apply because nobody wants to run
manually the tests by hand.
Last week I have discovered zentest, an automated test process command
line utility. That was at the beginning (hopefully) of a new project.
Believe it or not, I have started to code most parts of the application
without using a web browser for the first time of my life !!
Now, I have reached 51 tests and 140 assertions and everything is
smoother and smoother - The fear is gone !
Usage is as simple as :
autotest -rails from the root of your app, then write your tests.
Be nice with yourself, use zentest :
And a big thank to the author : Ryan D. - Can the zen be over his
head for the rest of his life :-))
