Gitnesse is an acceptance testing tool.
It enables a project to store Cucumber feature stories in a git-based wiki, test them against your code, and then update the wiki with the latest test results.
The advantage is, that the features are on a wiki, so non-programmers can see them, and edit using the wiki. Hence an awesome bi-directional testing flow between developers and non-developers on a team.
Conceptually influenced by Fitnesse http://fitnesse.org/ thank you Uncle Bob!
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install gitnesse
gitnesse.rb file somewhere in your project, and add something like
the following to it:
Gitnesse.configure do |config| config.repository_url = "firstname.lastname@example.org:hybridgroup/gitnesse-demo.wiki" config.annotate_results = true config.info = "Bob Martin's development laptop" end
Gitnesse depends on two values being present in your
user.email. These will be used when annotating test results, and to
identify commits you make to the feature wiki. If Gitnesse complains that you
don't have these set, you can fix this by entering the following lines in your
$ git config --add --global user.name <your_name> $ git config --add --global user.email <your_email>
$ rake gitnesse:pull $ rake gitnesse:push $ rake gitnesse:run $ rake gitnesse:info $ rake gitnesse:push_results
Usage In Rails 3
For Rails 3 the rake tasks should automatically just appear, as long as you have added the gitnesse gem to your Gemfile.
There is an example application using Rails 3 located here: https://github.com/hybridgroup/gitnesse-example-rails
Usage In Sinatra
To use gitnesse in a Sinatra application, simple add this line of code to your Rakefile:
There is an example application using Sinatra located here: https://github.com/hybridgroup/gitnesse-example-sinatra
Want to use plain old Gitnesse? There is an executable, if you're allergic to rake tasks:
- pluggable feature runners, so can be used with Spinach, Cucumber-JS, or ? - standalone server so end users to run tests and see live results, just like Fitnesse
- Fork it
- Create your feature branch (
git checkout -b my-new-feature)
- Commit your changes (
git commit -am 'Add some feature')
- Push to the branch (
git push origin my-new-feature)
- Create new Pull Request
