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 = "email@example.com:hybridgroup/gitnesse-demo.wiki" config.annotate_results = true config.info = "Bob Martin's development laptop" end
$ 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
