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
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
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
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
And then execute:
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
xdescribe methods, you also need to
