🕷 software releases

ZenTest version 3.8.0 has been released!

Published 2008-01-14 @ 20:57

ZenTest provides 4 different tools and 1 library: zentest, unit_diff, autotest, multiruby, and Test::Rails.

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.

unit_diff is a command-line filter to diff expected results from actual results and allow you to quickly see exactly what is wrong.

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!

Test::Rails helps you build industrial-strength Rails code.


3.8.0 / 2008-01-12

  • 10 minor enhancements:

    • Added basic support for rubinius in multiruby.
    • Changed Dunno! message to only output on -v
    • Added Getting Started with Autotest by Philippe Hanrigou (with permission)
    • Updated example_dot_autotest.rb for newer plugins.
    • Cleaned up rdoc.
    • Worked with David Chelimsky to make Autotest more uber for subclasses.
    • Removed exceptions and test_mappings accessors and replaced with add/remove/clear methods. Updating .autotest should be very straightforward.
    • Moved :initialize hook to beginning of run method
    • Changed load/customization order to be:
      • Autotest
      • AutotestSubClass
      • ~/.autotest
      • ./.autotest (yes, both .autotest files).
    • Moved away from using instance variables to encourage subclasses to use accessors.
