🕷 software releases

ZenTest version 3.9.0 has been released!

Published 2008-01-31 @ 01:50

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.


3.9.0 / 2008-01-30

  • 15 minor enhancements:

    • Added Wilson’s patch to allow unit_diff to work with mspec. Adding rspec next.
    • Minor overhaul for autotest:
      • Added -f flag to start up without testing.
      • Added -q flag to autotest to make it extra quiet. Patch by Aaron Patterson.
      • Added ability to set test execution order, defaults to :random. EVIL!
      • Added completed_re and failed_results_re to help subclasses like rspec.
      • Added deprecation warnings for hooks. Deprecated :run.
      • Added find_directories accessor, defaults to [’.’]
      • Added sleep accessor, defaults to 1 second.
      • Changed find_files to order files in the same order as find_directories.
      • Changed how autodiscover works with $:, added lib to the front.
      • Cleaned out nearly every @ and use accessor methods instead. You should too.
      • Made test_mappings ordered.
      • Removed @files, adding @find_order and @known_files.
      • Renamed tests_for_file to test_files_for.
      • test_files_for now only returns known files.
