🕷 software releases

ZenTest version 4.12.0 has been released!

Published 2019-09-22 @ 17:29

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 Minitest or Test::Unit. There is enough evidence to show that this is still proving useful to users, 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.

NOTE: The next major release of zentest will not include autotest (use minitest-autotest instead) and multiruby will use rbenv / ruby-build for version management.


4.12.0 / 2019-09-22

  • 3 major enhancements:

    • Deleted autotest from project. Use minitest-autotest instead.
    • Removed multiruby_setup. Use ruby-install or ruby-build or install your own.
    • Update multiruby to use ~/.rubies (default for ruby-install).
  • 4 minor enhancements:

    • Find and use the multiruby next to multigem.
    • multiruby ignores GEM_HOME and GEM_PATH (to allow multigem to work).
    • multiruby respects global multiruby_skip entries in ~/.hoerc.
    • multiruby sorts versions properly so glob ordering is consistent.
  • 1 bug fix:

    • Removed hacks for rbx because nobody uses rbx.
