Formerly known as MicroTest.
A small test framework that supports debugging test failures & errors when they happen.
- Simplicity - writing tests should be easy & devoid of friction
- Intelligibility - tests should be readable & unambiguous
- Immediacy - test failures should be dealt with quickly when they occur
- A simple test API
- An awesome
- Optional async test runs
Everything you need to know about PryTest's API is outlined here.
||Superclass for all test classes.|
Defines a test method.
Verifies the truthiness of a value.

A callback that runs after each test method.
A Complete Example
The entire public interface is used in this basic example.
class MathTest < PryTest::Test before do # runs before each test method end after do # runs after each test method end test "basic addition" do assert 2 + 2 == 4 end end
PryTest ships with a demo so you can try it out easily.
gem install pry-test pry-test --help pry-test --demo
Try some advanced features.
pry-test --demo --async pry-test --demo --disable-pry
Testing Your Own Projects
PryTest assumes your test directory is located at
however, this isn't a requirement. You can indicate your test directory location.
If you have multiple versions of PryTest installed,
it's safest to run your tests with
bundle exec pry-test /path/to/test/dir
PryTest is small & unobtrusive. It plays nice with other test frameworks, & can be introduced to existing projects incrementally.
