🕷 software releases

minitest version 2.0.0 has been released!

Published 2010-11-11 @ 12:44

minitest provides a complete suite of testing facilities supporting TDD, BDD, mocking, and benchmarking.

minitest/unit is a small and incredibly fast unit testing framework. It provides a rich set of assertions to make your tests clean and readable.

minitest/spec is a functionally complete spec engine. It hooks onto minitest/unit and seamlessly bridges test assertions over to spec expectations.

minitest/benchmark is an awesome way to assert the performance of your algorithms in a repeatable manner. Now you can assert that your newb co-worker doesn’t replace your linear algorithm with an exponential one!

minitest/mock by Steven Baker, is a beautifully tiny mock object framework.

minitest/pride shows pride in testing and adds coloring to your test output.

minitest/unit is meant to have a clean implementation for language implementors that need a minimal set of methods to bootstrap a working test suite. For example, there is no magic involved for test-case discovery.


2.0.0 / 2010-11-11

  • 3 major enhancements:

    • Added minitest/benchmark! Assert your performance! YAY!
    • Refactored runner to allow for more extensibility. See minitest/benchmark.
    • This makes the runner backwards incompatible in some ways!
  • 9 minor enhancements:

    • Added MiniTest::Unit.after_tests { … }
    • Improved output by adding test rates and a more sortable verbose format
    • Improved readme based on feedback from others
    • Added io method to TestCase. If used, it’ll supplant ‘.EF’ output.
    • Refactored IO in MiniTest::Unit.
    • Refactored _run_anything to _run_suite to make it easier to wrap (ngauthier)
    • Spec class names are now the unmunged descriptions (btakita)
    • YAY for not having redundant rdoc/readmes!
    • Help output is now generated from the flags you passed straight up.
  • 4 bug fixes:

    • Fixed scoping issue on minitest/mock (srbaker/prosperity)
    • Fixed some of the assertion default messages
    • Fixes autorun when on windows with ruby install on different drive (larsch)
    • Fixed rdoc output bug in spec.rb
