NAME Test::Continuous - Run your test suite continuously when developing. SYNOPSIS Very simple usage: % cd MyModule/ % autoprove You may pass prove arguments: % autoprove --shuffle DESCRIPTION *Continuous Testing* is a concept and tool to re-run software tests as soon as the developer saves the source code. "Test::Continuous" is a tool based on App::Prove that implements this concept for Perl. See <http://groups.csail.mit.edu/pag/continuoustesting/> for the original implementation of Continuous Testing as an Eclipse plugin. See also Zentest <http://www.zenspider.com/ZSS/Products/ZenTest/> for the same concept implemented in Ruby's world. INTERFACE runtests This function starts monitoring the mtime of all files under current working directory. If there's any update, it runs your module tests under t/ directory with App::Prove. You could call it from command line like this: perl -MTest::Continuous -e Test::Continuous::runtests However, it's recommended to use the autoprove program shipped with this distribution to do this instead. CONFIGURATION AND ENVIRONMENT Test::Continuous requires no configuration files. Your ".proverc. is NOT loaded, even though it's based on App::Prove. The main "runtests()" routine parses arguments on the command line or passed via the environment variable "AUTOPROVE_OPTS". All autoprove options are prefixed with "--autoprove-" (in both the command line and the environmental variable). Valid options: "--autoprove-no-skip-initial" (Default) "--autoprove-skip-initial" These options allow control over whether the initial tests are run when autoprove is first started. By default, "runtests()" will run all tests when executed, and then wait for changes. Using "--autoprove-skip-initial" skips the initial tests and goes straight to watching for changes to files. Generally, you should run all tests, in case something changed while "Test::Continuous" was not running. The "--autoprove-no-skip-initial" is provided so that you can override an environmental variable "AUTOPROVE_OPTS" that includes "--autoprove-skip-initial" via the command line, by passing autoprove the "--autoprove-no-skip-initial" option. DEPENDENCIES App::Prove, Log::Dispatch, Log::Dispatch::DesktopNotification, Module::ExtractUse INCOMPATIBILITIES It might not be compatible with all Test::Harness::* classes. Testing with remote harness classes basically works, but has some glitches. Help is appreciated.
