Polish

Polish is Test-Driven Development done right

Getting Started

Installing the Package

The crates.io package is kept up-to-date with all the major changes which means you can use it by simply including the following in your Cargo.toml under your dependencies section:

polish = "*"

Replace * with the version number shown in the crates.io badge above

But if you'd like to use nightly (most recent) releases, you can include the GitHub package repo instead:

polish = { git = "https://github.com/alkass/polish", branch = "master" }

Writing Test Cases

single Test Cases

The simplest test case can take the following form:

extern crate polish;

use polish::test_case::{TestRunner, TestCaseStatus, TestCase};
use polish::logger::Logger;

fn my_test_case(logger: &mut Logger) -> TestCaseStatus {
  // TODO: Your test case code goes here
  TestCaseStatus::PASSED // Other valid statuses are (FAILED, SKIPPED, and UNKNOWN)
}

fn main() {
  let test_case = TestCase::new("Test Case Title", "Test Case Criteria", Box::new(my_test_case));
  TestRunner::new().run_test(test_case);
}

This produces the following:

The example listed above is available here

You can also pass a Rust closure instead of a function pointer as so:

extern crate polish;

use polish::test_case::{TestRunner, TestCaseStatus, TestCase};
use polish::logger::Logger;

fn main() {
  let test_case = TestCase::new("Test Case Title", "Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
    // TODO: Your test case code goes here
    TestCaseStatus::PASSED
  }));
  TestRunner::new().run_test(test_case);
}

The example listed above is available here

Multiple Test Cases

You can run multiple test cases as follows:

extern crate polish;

use polish::test_case::{TestRunner, TestCaseStatus, TestCase};
use polish::logger::Logger;

fn main() {
  let mut runner = TestRunner::new();
  runner.run_test(TestCase::new("1st Test Case Title", "Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
    // TODO: Your test case code goes here
    TestCaseStatus::PASSED
  })));
  runner.run_test(TestCase::new("2nd Test Case Title", "Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
    // TODO: Your test case code goes here
    TestCaseStatus::PASSED
  })));
  runner.run_test(TestCase::new("3rd Test Case Title", "Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
    // TODO: Your test case code goes here
    TestCaseStatus::PASSED
  })));
}

But a more convenient way would be to pass a Vector of your test cases to run_tests as so:

extern crate polish;

use polish::test_case::{TestRunner, TestCaseStatus, TestCase};
use polish::logger::Logger;

fn main() {
    let my_tests = vec![
      TestCase::new("1st Test Case Title", "1st Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
        // TODO: Your test case goes here
        TestCaseStatus::PASSED
      })),
      TestCase::new("2nd Test Case Title", "2nd Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
        // TODO: Your test case goes here
        TestCaseStatus::UNKNOWN
      })),
      TestCase::new("3rd Test Case Title", "3rd Test Case Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
        // TODO: Your test case goes here
        TestCaseStatus::FAILED
      }))];
    TestRunner::new().run_tests(my_tests);
}

This produces the following:

The example listed above is available here

Embedded Test Cases

You may choose to have a set of test cases as part of an object to test that object itself. For that, a clean way of writing your test cases would be to implement the Testable trait. Following is an example:

extern crate polish;

use polish::test_case::{TestRunner, TestCaseStatus, TestCase, Testable};
use polish::logger::Logger;

struct MyTestCase;
impl Testable for MyTestCase {
  fn tests(self) -> Vec<TestCase> {
    vec![
      TestCase::new("Some Title #1", "Testing Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
        // TODO: Your test case goes here
        TestCaseStatus::PASSED
      })),
      TestCase::new("Some Title #2", "Testing Criteria", Box::new(|logger: &mut Logger| -> TestCaseStatus {
      // TODO: Your test case goes here
      TestCaseStatus::SKIPPED
    }))]
  }
}

fn main() {
  TestRunner::new().run_tests_from_class(MyTestCase {});
}

This produces the following:

The example listed above is available here

Attributes

Attributes allow you to change the behaviour of how your test cases are run. For instance, by default, your TestRunner instance will run all your test cases regardless of whether any have failed. If you, however, want this behaviour changed, you will need to specifically tell your TestRunner instance to stop the process at the first failure.

THIS FEATURE IS STILL WORK-IN-PROGRESS. THIS DOCUMENT WILL BE UPDATED WITH TECHNICAL DETAILS ONCE THE FEATURE IS COMPLETE.

Logging

The logger object that's passed to each test case offers 4 logging functions (pass, fail, warn, and info). Each of these functions take a message argument of type String which allows you to use the format! macro to format your logs, e.g.:

logger.info(format!("{} + {} = {}", 1, 2, 1 + 2));
logger.pass(format!("{id}: {message}", id = "alkass", message = "this is a message"));
logger.warn(format!("about to fail"));
logger.fail(format!("failed with err_code: {code}", code = -1));

This produces the following:

The example listed above is available here

If your test case return status is UNKNOWN and you've printed at least one fail log from within the test case function, your test case result will be marked as FAILED. Otherwise, your test case will be marked as PASSED.
