Testing

Unit

def "should display hello text"() {
    given:
    def textView = new TextView(Robolectric.application)

    and:
    def hello = "Hello"

    when:
    textView.setText(hello)

    then:
    textView.getText() == hello
}
        

Assert

assertThat(frodo.getName()).isEqualTo("Frodo");
assertThat(frodo).isNotEqualTo(sauron)
                 .isIn(fellowshipOfTheRing);
assertThat(sauron).isNotIn(fellowshipOfTheRing);

Fixture

Factory.define(
        // This will guess the User class
        new Definition(User.class) {
            @Override
            public Bundle set(Bundle attrs) {
                attrs.putString("name", "John");
                attrs.putBoolean("admin", false);
                return attrs;
            }
        // This will use the User class (Adming would have been guessed)
        }, new Definition(User.class, "admin") {
            @Override
            public Bundle set(Bundle attrs) {
                attrs.putString("name", "Admin");
                attrs.putBoolean("admin", true);
                return attrs;
            }
        });

Mock

LinkedList mockedList = mock(LinkedList.class);
when(mockedList.get(0)).thenReturn("first");
when(mockedList.get(1)).thenThrow(new RuntimeException());

UI Test

public void testSayHello() {
  onView(withId(R.id.name_field))
    .perform(typeText("Steve"));
  onView(withId(R.id.greet_button))
    .perform(click());
  onView(withText("Hello Steve!"))
    .check(matches(isDisplayed()));

Contribution

Just fork & edit & send pull-request on GitHub!

####Policy

  1. Official Website over GitHub Repository for links.
  2. Should put codes which reflects the library.
  3. For UI libraries, put demonstorations (AniGIF, PNG, Movies).

And I am considering to ...

  1. Put reference links for each libraries.
  2. Separate pages for each categories.
  3. Separate UI categories.
