GoDoc Build Status Maintainability Test Coverage

Small go library for mocking parts of the time package.

Example

The package contains a Clock and Ticker interface which wrap the time.Now, time.After, adnd time.Sleep functions and the Ticker struct, respectively.

A real clock can be created for general (non-test) use. This implementation simply falls back to the functions provided in the time package.

clock := glock.NewRealClock()
clock.Now()                       // calls time.Now
clock.After(time.Second)          // calls time.After(time.Second)

t := clock.NewTicker(time.Second) // wraps time.NewTicker(time.Second)
t.Chan()                          // returns ticker's C field
t.Stop()                          // stops the ticker

In order to make unit tests that depend on time deterministic (and free of sleep calls), a mock clock can be used in place of the real clock. The mock clock allows you to control the current time with SetCurrent and Advance methods.

clock := glock.NewMockClock()

clock.Now() // returns time of creation
clock.Now() // returns time of creation
clock.SetCurrent(time.Unix(603288000, 0))
clock.Now() // returns Feb 12, 1989
clock.Advance(time.Day)
clock.Now() // returns Feb 13, 1989

The Advance method will also trigger a value on the channels created by the After and Ticker functions.

clock := glock.NewMockClockAt(time.Unix(603288000, 0))

c1 := clock.After(time.Second)
c2 := clock.After(time.Minute)
clock.GetAfterArgs()            // returns {time.Second, time.Minute}
clock.GetAfterArgs()            // returns {}
clock.Advance(time.Second * 30) // Fires c2
clock.Advance(time.Second * 30) // Fires c1
clock := glock.NewMockClock()
ticker := clock.NewTicker(time.Minute)

ch := ticker.Chan()
clock.Advance(time.Second * 30)
clock.Advance(time.Second * 30) // Fires ch
clock.Advance(time.Second * 30)
clock.Advance(time.Second * 30) // Fires ch
