Miniunit

How does one actually use miniunit, if the normal test/unit is present?

For example, when I try to run miniunit’s own tests:

$ ruby test_test_case.rb
test_test_case.rb:8: uninitialized constant MiniTest (NameError)

Or is miniunit only intended for use in a minimal environment where
test/unit is not present?

This is mostly idle curiosity. I’m playing with some extensions to the
test/unit framework, and will probably start with miniunit instead. For
this purpose, I can just copy and rename, so that miniunit isn’t
shadowed by test/unit.

Use the handy rake task:

$ gem fetch miniunit
Downloaded miniunit-1.1.0.gem
$ gem unpack miniunit-1.1.0.gem
Unpacked gem: ‘/Users/drbrain/tmp/miniunit-1.1.0’
$ cd miniunit-1.1.0/
./miniunit-1.1.0/
$ rake
(in /Users/drbrain/tmp/miniunit-1.1.0)
/System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions/1.8/usr/bin/ruby -w
-Ilib:ext:bin:test -e ‘require “test/test_test_case.rb”; require “test/
test_test_unit.rb”; require “test/unit”’

require ‘rubygems’
require ‘test/unit’
Test = MiniTest

Should do the trick.
