ZenTest version 4.6.0 has been released!
Published 2011-07-22 @ 21:47
ZenTest provides 4 different tools: zentest, unit_diff, autotest, and multiruby.
ZenTest scans your target and unit-test code and writes your missing code based on simple naming rules, enabling XP at a much quicker pace. ZenTest only works with Ruby and Test::Unit. Nobody uses this tool anymore but it is the package namesake, so it stays.
unit_diff is a command-line filter to diff expected results from actual results and allow you to quickly see exactly what is wrong. Do note that minitest 2.2+ provides an enhanced assert_equal obviating the need for unit_diff
autotest is a continous testing facility meant to be used during development. As soon as you save a file, autotest will run the corresponding dependent tests.
multiruby runs anything you want on multiple versions of ruby. Great for compatibility checking! Use multiruby_setup to manage your installed versions.
4.6.0 / 2011-07-22
6 minor enhancements:
- Added -p (plain diff) and made -u (unified diff) the default for unit_diff.
- Added ./tmp to default exclusions.
- Autotest defaults unit_diff to nil now, to allow minitest’s enhanced assert_equal to shine.
- Autotest will raise if the :died handler doesn’t handle the exception. (ralfebert)
- Dropped 1.8.6 as a default tag/branch to build in multiruby.
- autotest can now be automatically ‘narrowed’ on the command-line.
