= minitest/{unit,spec,mock}

* http://rubyforge.org/projects/bfts

== DESCRIPTION:

minitest/unit is a small and fast replacement for ruby's huge and slow
test/unit. This is meant to be clean and easy to use both as a regular
test writer and for language implementors that need a minimal set of
methods to bootstrap a working unit test suite.

mini/spec is a functionally complete spec engine.

mini/mock, by Steven Baker, is a beautifully tiny mock object framework.

(This package was called miniunit once upon a time)

== FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

* Contains minitest/unit - a simple and clean test system (301 lines!).
* Contains minitest/spec - a simple and clean spec system (52 lines!).
* Contains minitest/mock - a simple and clean mock system (35 lines!).
* Incredibly small and fast runner, but no bells and whistles.

== RATIONALE:

See design_rationale.rb to see how specs and tests work in minitest.

== SYNOPSIS:

Given that you'd like to test the following class:

    class Meme
      def i_can_has_cheezburger?
        "OHAI!"
      end

      def does_it_blend?
        "YES!"
      end
    end


=== Unit tests

    require 'minitest/unit'
    MiniTest::Unit.autorun

    class TestMeme < MiniTest::Unit::TestCase
      def setup
        @meme = Meme.new
      end

      def test_that_kitty_can_eat
        assert_equal "OHAI!", @meme.i_can_has_cheezburger?
      end

      def test_that_it_doesnt_not_blend
        refute_match /^no/i, @meme.does_it_blend?
      end
    end

=== Specs

    require 'minitest/spec'
    MiniTest::Unit.autorun

    describe Meme do
      before do
        @meme = Meme.new
      end

      describe "when asked about cheeseburgers" do
        it "should respond positively" do
          @meme.i_can_has_cheezburger?.must_equal "OHAI!"
        end
      end

      describe "when asked about blending possibilities" do
        it "won't say no" do
          @meme.does_it_blend?.wont_match /^no/i
        end
      end
    end

=== Mocks

    class MemeAsker
      def initialize(meme)
        @meme = meme
      end

      def ask(question)
        method = question.tr(" ","_") + "?"
        @meme.send(method)
      end
    end

    require 'minitest/spec'
    require 'minitest/mock'
    MiniTest::Unit.autorun

    describe MemeAsker do
      before do
        @meme = MiniTest::Mock.new
        @meme_asker = MemeAsker.new @meme
      end

      describe "#ask" do
        describe "when passed an unpunctuated question" do
          it "should invoke the appropriate predicate method on the meme" do
            @meme.expect :does_it_blend?, :return_value
            @meme_asker.ask "does it blend"
            @meme.verify
          end
        end
      end
    end
