Stories and User Acceptance Tests for Test::Unit.
Write user stories and user acceptace tests using Contest, the tiny add on to Test::Unit that provides nested contexts and declarative tests.
Declare your stories as follows:
require 'stories' class UserStoryTest < Test::Unit::TestCase story "As a user I want to create stories so I can test if they pass" do setup do @user = "valid user" end scenario "A valid user" do assert_equal "valid user", @user end end end
If you are using Rails, you can use stories for your integration tests with Webrat:
require "stories" class UserStoriesTest < ActionController::IntegrationTest story "As a user I want to log in so that I can access restricted features" do setup do @user = User.spawn end scenario "Using good information" do visit "/" click_link "Log in" fill_in :session_email, :with => user.email fill_in :session_password, :with => user.password click_button "Sign in" assert_not_contain "Log in" assert_not_contain "Sign up" end end end
You can run it normally, it's Test::Unit after all. If you want to run a particular test, say "yet more tests", try this:
$ testrb my_test.rb -n test_yet_more_tests
Or with a regular expression:
$ testrb my_test.rb -n /yet_more_tests/
$ gem sources -a http://gems.github.com (you only have to do this once) $ sudo gem install citrusbyte-stories
If you want to use it with Rails, add this to config/environment.rb:
config.gem "citrusbyte-stories", :lib => 'stories', :source => 'http://gems.github.com'
Then you can vendor the gem:
rake gems:install rake gems:unpack
