minitest-autotest version 1.1.0 has been released!

Published 2019-05-26 @ 17:33

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.

minitest-autotest is the latest incarnation of the venerable and wise autotest. This time, it talks to minitest via minitest-server. As a result, there is no output parsing. There are no regexps to tweak. There’s no cruft or overhead.


1.1.0 / 2019-05-26

  • 4 minor enhancements:

    • Added –focus mode that lets you only monitor/test specified files.
    • Move Autotest.parse_options from bin/autotest to Autotest.run.
    • Push options down to instance variable. No globals. Passed to #initialize.
    • Use path_expander to process cmdline args.
  • 2 bug fixes:

    • Filter out non-files (eg “(eval)”) to avoid spurious errors.
    • Remove explicit -rubygems flag. Broken in ruby 2.5 for some reason.
