Infix Operators for Test Assertions

What is this?

When you are writing tests, it's common to want to check a number of properties against a given value.

(require '[clojure.test :refer :all]
         '[schema.core :as s])

(deftest my-test
  (let [response ...]
    (is (= (:status response) 200))
    (is (= (count (get-in response [:headers "content-length"])) (count "Hello World!")))
    (is (= (count (get-in response [:headers "content-type"])) "text/plain;charset=utf-8"))
    (is (nil? (s/check s/Str (get-in response [:headers "content-type"]))))
    (is (instance? java.nio.ByteBuffer response))
    ))

This can get a bit cumbersome.

iota is a micro-library that provides a single macro, juxt.iota/given, that allows you to create triples, each of which expands into a clojure.test/is assertion.

(require '[clojure.test :refer :all]
         '[schema.core :as s]
         '[juxt.iota :refer [given]])

(deftest my-test
  (given response
          :status := 200
          :headers :⊃ {"content-length" (count "Hello World!")
                       "content-type" "text/plain;charset=utf-8"}
          [:headers "content-type"] :- s/Str
          :body :instanceof java.nio.ByteBuffer))

It's a little less typing, which might give you the extra time to add more checks, improving your testing.

Valid operators

Operator Meaning
:= or :equals is equal to
:!= or :not-equals isn't equal to
:- or :conforms conforms to schema
:!- or :not-conforms doesn't conform to schema
:? or :satisfies satifies predicate
:!? or :not-satisfies doesn't satisfy predicate
:# or :matches matches regex
:!# or :not-matches doesn't match regex
:> or :⊃ or :superset is superset of
:!> or :⊅ or :not-superset isn't superset of
:< or :⊂ or :subset is subset of
:!< or :⊄ or :not-subset isn't subset of
:instanceof or :instance is instance of
:!instanceof or :not-instance isn't instance of

Paths

The left hand operand of your expressions can be a vector, which acts as a path. A bit like -> but you can also use strings.
