"Totally not an hours reminder... I lied." - Robert Smith
Pesters people to enter hours in Harvest.
Given a list of email addresses, it checks Harvest to see that each user has at least 40 hours entered into Harvest for the previous week. If the person doesn't, it sends them an SMS message via Twilio.
The list of email addresses and phone numbers are retrieved from a CSV file. See the
test/data/employees.txt file for a sample of what the file needs to look like.
From project root:
./bin/pester [OPTIONS] Options: -f, --file FILENAME name of file with employee email addresses -h, --help show help
Requires Ruby. The version is specified in the
Gemfile. Bundler is used to manage dependencies. Install them via
The Dotenv gem is used to load the environment variables from an environment file named
prod.env. The environment file must set the following variables:
sample.env for an example.
Run the tests using the
rake command. Run
rake -T to see a list of supported tasks. Tests get their environment variables from a file named
test.env. This file needs all of the same variables as the
Tests are organized into three categories: small, medium and large. A test is assigned to a category based on the following criteria:
|Network access||No||localhost only||Yes|
|File system access||No||Yes||Yes|
|Use external systems||No||Discouraged||Yes|
The idea for using these categories and the table above are from this blog post.
Special note: Unfortunately, Harvest does not provide a sandbox account for testing. The Harvest tests have a hard-coded email address and hours total for a specific week. If you are adapting this for your own use, you will need to update the email address and hours total to reflect a specific user for your own Harvest instance.
This project uses a Ports and Adapters architecture. Domain classes are located in
lib/pester. Adapters are located in
