Start an interactive session when a test fails
Warning BETA software: Please file an issue if you have any problems
plymouth is a gem to automatically start a Pry session when a test fails, putting you in the context of the failure.
It currently supports Bacon, Minitest, and RSpec.
Support for other testing libraries is (usually) trivial to add.
plymouth currently only supports MRI 1.9.2+ (including 1.9.3)
How to use:
Simply add the following line to your test files:
plymouth should auto-detect which testing library you're using, and 'just work' :)
Example: Intercept a failing test in RSpec
Inside the test file:
require 'plymouth' describe Array do before do @array =  end it 'should be empty' do @array.empty?.should == true end end
And here is the result of running the above test with the
Test failure: expected: true got: false (using ==) Frame number: 0/14 Frame type: block From: /Users/john/ruby/play/rspec_intercept.rb @ line 9: 4: before do 5: @array =  6: end 7: 8: it 'should be empty' do => 9: @array.empty?.should == true 10: end 11: end  (pry) #<RSpec::Core::ExampleGroup::Nested_1>: 0> @array.size => 1  (pry) #<RSpec::Core::ExampleGroup::Nested_1>: 0> ^D F Failures: 1) Array should be empty Failure/Error: @array.empty?.should == true expected: true got: false (using ==) # ./rspec_intercept.rb:9:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>' Finished in 7.74 seconds 1 example, 1 failure Failed examples: rspec ./rspec_intercept.rb:8 # Array should be empty
- Occasional segfault on 1.9.3 (seems to work fine on 1.9.2). Please report all segfaults with a full backtrace!
- Only supports MRI.
- Currently limited to just Bacon, RSpec and Minitest. Support for more testing libraries will be added in the future.
