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.
