🕷 software releases

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.
      • eg: autotest lib test/test_blah.rb
  • 7 bug fixes:

    • Believe it or not… but some ppl use zentest. Fixed nested class vs module bug
    • Fix to turn on jruby’s support for ObjectSpace. (stepheneb)
    • Fixed a rubygems deprecation in autotest
    • Fixed unit_diff scanning for minitest output.
    • Normalized shebangs to fix problems on windows (luis)
    • autotest/isolate.rb sets GEM_HOME as well as GEM_PATH.
    • Fixed 1.9.3 warnings.
