NAME
Test::Continuous - Run your tests suite continusouly when developing.
VERSION
This document describes Test::Continuous version 0.61
SYNOPSIS
Very simple usage:
% cd MyModule/
% perl -MTest::Continuous -e runtests
If you want to provide prove arguments:
% perl -MTest::Continuous -e runtests -- --shuffle
DESCRIPTION
*Continuous Testing* is a concept and tool to re-run software tests as
soon as the developer saved the source code.
See also <http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/continuoustesting/> for the
original implementation of Continuous Testing as a Eclipse plugin.
See also Zentest <http://www.zenspider.com/ZSS/Products/ZenTest/> for
the same concept of implementation in Ruby's world.
INTERFACE
runtests
This is the only function that you should be calling, directly from
command line:
perl -MTest::Continuous -e runtests
It'll start monitoring the mtime of all files under current working
directy. If there's any update, it'll run your module test under t/
directory with App::Prove.
Test result are displayed on terminal. Also dispatched to Growl if
"Log::Dispatch::MacGrowl" is installed. Big plus for perl
programmers on Mac.
"Test::Continuous" will auto detect the subset of tests to run. For
example, say you have two test files "feature-foo.t" and
"feature-bar.t" which test ,and use, your module "Feature::Foo" and
"Feature::Bar" respectively. "Test::Continuous" can catch this
static dependency and only run "feature-foo.t" when "Feature::Foo"
is modified, "feature-bar.t" will only be ran if "Feature::Bar" is
modified.
If a ".t" file is modified, only that test file will be ran.
Dynamic module dependency is more difficult to detect and needs
further research.
CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT
Test::Continuous requires no configuration files or environment
variables.
DEPENDENCIES
App::Prove, Log::Dispatch, Log::Dispatch::MacGrowl, Module::ExtractUse
INCOMPATIBILITIES
None reported.
BUGS AND LIMITATIONS
No bugs have been reported.
Please report any bugs or feature requests to
"bug-test-continuous@rt.cpan.org", or through the web interface at
<http://rt.cpan.org>.
TODO
A good name for executable.
Accept a per-module config file to tweak different parameters to prove
command.
