= ZenTest * http://www.zenspider.com/ZSS/Products/ZenTest/ * http://rubyforge.org/projects/zentest/ * mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org == DESCRIPTION ZenTest provides 4 different tools: zentest, unit_diff, autotest, and multiruby. ZenTest scans your target and unit-test code and writes your missing code based on simple naming rules, enabling XP at a much quicker pace. ZenTest only works with Ruby and Test::Unit. Nobody uses this tool anymore but it is the package namesake, so it stays. unit_diff is a command-line filter to diff expected results from actual results and allow you to quickly see exactly what is wrong. autotest is a continous testing facility meant to be used during development. As soon as you save a file, autotest will run the corresponding dependent tests. multiruby runs anything you want on multiple versions of ruby. Great for compatibility checking! Use multiruby_setup to manage your installed versions. == STRATEGERY There are two strategeries intended for ZenTest: test conformance auditing and rapid XP. For auditing, ZenTest provides an excellent means of finding methods that have slipped through the testing process. I've run it against my own software and found I missed a lot in a well tested package. Writing those tests found 4 bugs I had no idea existed. ZenTest can also be used to evaluate generated code and execute your tests, allowing for very rapid development of both tests and implementation. == FEATURES * Scans your ruby code and tests and generates missing methods for you. * Includes a very helpful filter for Test/Spec output called unit_diff. * Continually and intelligently test only those files you change with autotest. * Test against multiple versions with multiruby. * Enhance and automatically audit your rails tests using Test::Rails. * Includes a LinuxJournal article on testing with ZenTest written by Pat Eyler. * See also: http://blog.zenspider.com/archives/zentest/ * See also: http://blog.segment7.net/articles/category/zentest == SYNOPSYS ZenTest MyProject.rb TestMyProject.rb > missing.rb ./TestMyProject.rb | unit_diff autotest multiruby_setup mri:svn:current multiruby ./TestMyProject.rb (and other stuff for Test::Rails) == Windows and Color Read this: http://blog.mmediasys.com/2010/11/24/we-all-love-colors/ == REQUIREMENTS * Ruby 1.6+, JRuby 1.1.2+, or rubinius * A test/spec framework of your choice. * Hoe (development) * rubygems * diff.exe on windows.
