Test-Approvals

test

Capturing Human Intelligence - ApprovalTests is an open source assertion/verification library to aid testing. Test::Approvals is the ApprovalTests port for Perl.

For more information see: www.approvaltests.com

What can I use ApprovalTests for?

You can use ApprovalTests to verify objects that require more than a simple assert including long strings, large arrays, and complex hash structures and objects. Although modules exist which allow this kind of testing, ApprovalTests really shines when you need a more granular look at the test failure. Sometimes, trying to find a small difference in a long string printed to STDOUT is just too hard!
ApprovalTests solves this problem by providing reporters which let you view the test results in one of many popular diff utilities.
