Minitest Skip

Gem Version GitHub tag (latest SemVer)

This gem provides alternative ways of skipping a test. Normally a skipped test in Minitest looks like:

def test_that_is_flaky
  skip "Figure out why this flakes"
end

The gotcha for skipping tests with the skip keyword is that the setup and teardown blocks are still executed. This can be costly for acceptance tests since their setup usually involves starting a browser among other slow things.

This gem will allow you to use methods that begin with skip_ to mark a test as skipped. It modifies Minitest such that it will recognize these skip methods and correctly report the results.

require "minitest/autorun"
class TestSkip < Minitest::Test
  def setup
    sleep 2 # costly setup block
  end

  def skip_test_that_is_temporarily_broken
    # ...
  end
end

# ruby test/test_skip.rb
# Run options: --seed 54134

# # Running:

# S

# Finished in 0.001663s, 601.3537 runs/s, 0.0000 assertions/s.

# 1 runs, 0 assertions, 0 failures, 0 errors, 1 skips

# You have skipped tests. Run with --verbose for details.

This gem also adds xit and xdescribe if you prefer the spec style syntax for Minitest.

require "minitest/autorun"
require "minitest/spec"
require "minitest/skip_dsl"

describe "Test" do
  it "normal" do assert true end
  xit "skipped" do assert false end
  xdescribe "All skipped" do
    it "nested skip" do assert false end
  end
end

Or you can use the skip macro (suggested by @sgtFloyd):

skip def test_something
  # ...
end

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'minitest-skip'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install minitest-skip

And that's it! This is a Minitest plugin which means that it will be autoloaded. If you want to use xit and xdescribe methods or the skip macro, you also need to require 'minitest/skip_dsl'.
