Overview

Oh look! A MiniTest::Spec::DSL module! Eat your heart out DHH.

Constant Summary collapse

TYPES =

Contains pairs of matchers and Spec classes to be used to calculate the superclass of a top-level describe. This allows for automatically customizable spec types.

Instance Method Details

#after(type = nil, &block) ⇒ Object

Define an 'after' action. Inherits the way normal methods should.

NOTE: type is ignored and is only there to make porting easier.

Equivalent to MiniTest::Unit::TestCase#teardown.

def after type = nil, &block
  define_method :teardown do
    self.instance_eval(&block)
    super()
  end
end

#before(type = nil, &block) ⇒ Object

Define a 'before' action. Inherits the way normal methods should.

NOTE: type is ignored and is only there to make porting easier.

Equivalent to MiniTest::Unit::TestCase#setup.

#it(desc = "anonymous", &block) ⇒ Object Also known as: specify

Define an expectation with name desc. Name gets morphed to a proper test method name. For some freakish reason, people who write specs don't like class inheritance, so this goes way out of its way to make sure that expectations aren't inherited.

This is also aliased to #specify and doesn't require a desc arg.

Hint: If you do want inheritence, use minitest/unit. You can mix and match between assertions and expectations as much as you want.

  define_method name, &block

  self.children.each do |mod|
    mod.send :undef_method, name if mod.public_method_defined? name
  end

  name
end

#let(name, &block) ⇒ Object

Essentially, define an accessor for name with block.

Why use let instead of def? I honestly don't know.

#register_spec_type(*args, &block) ⇒ Object

Register a new type of spec that matches the spec's description. This method can take either a Regexp and a spec class or a spec class and a block that takes the description and returns true if it matches.

Eg:

register_spec_type(/Controller$/, MiniTest::Spec::Rails)

or:

register_spec_type(MiniTest::Spec::RailsModel) do |desc|
  desc.superclass == ActiveRecord::Base
end

  if block then
    matcher, klass = block, args.first
  else
    matcher, klass = *args
  end
  TYPES.unshift [matcher, klass]
end

#spec_type(desc) ⇒ Object

Figure out the spec class to use based on a spec's description. Eg:

spec_type("BlahController") # => MiniTest::Spec::Rails

      matcher.call desc
    else
      matcher === desc.to_s
    end
  }.last
end

#subject(&block) ⇒ Object

Another lazy man's accessor generator. Made even more lazy by setting the name for you to subject.
