Roadmap

The Roadmap of Sparrow6 project development.

  • multiroot story support ( ability to run multi root stories )
  • ignore_story_err implementation
  • set_stdout implementation
  • ignore_error() instead of ignore_story_err()
  • implement cwd attribute
  • implement purge-cache
  • Add self!set-sparrow-root(); to Sparrow6::SparrowHub::API constructor
  • s6 - install/search/list plugin
  • freeze SparrowHub index for Sparrow/Perl5, disable upload action
  • read config support (set-conf/conf/SP6_CONF)
  • sudo support
  • Implement os() function
  • Rewrite resources/sparrow6common.pm to Perl6
  • Port Sparrowdo::DSL to Sparrow6::DSL
  • Sparrowdo - convert outthentic tests to regular tests
  • Sparrowdo - support for config
  • Sparrow6::Task::Runner::Api story => task renaming
  • Sparrowdo copy local files
  • Regexp interpolation
  • Sequences, Ranges, Withins
  • Streams for Sequences, Ranges and Withins
  • Handle comments inside code/generators correctly
  • Port Otthentic::DSL tests to Sparrow6
  • Don't allow nested contexts
  • Task states ( ability to exchange data between tasks - implimented for Perl )
  • Ruby support
  • Python support
  • Document Sparrow6::Task::Check
  • S6 - --repo-init command
  • Document task states
  • Ruby plugins, bundle install test
  • Rename sparrow.index to index
  • module_run added
  • Powershell support
  • Renaming: suite.yaml => config.yaml
  • Renaming: story* => task*
  • Renaming: story => task
  • Renaming: story.check => task.check
  • Rewrite Sparrow client to s6 ( Sparrow::S6 )
  • Switch Tomtit to Updated Sparrowdo version ( github master branch )
  • Switch Sparrowdo to Updated Sparrowdo version ( github master branch )
  • SparrowHub reference removed from docs
  • modules/ => tasks/ renaming
  • ignore_task_err => ignore_task_error renaming
  • story_run => task_run renaming
  • story_var => task_var renaming
  • Consider lightweight SparrowHub alternative ( Azure free host, domain ) - http://repo.southcentralus.cloudapp.azure.com
  • Create information on SparrowHub retirement - reddit
  • s6 cli module-run added
  • Documenting repo.southcentralus.cloudapp.azure.com
  • Perl6 support ( after renaming )
  • Args stringification

Urgent

  • Reconsider Sparrowdo bootstrap ( need to remove some packages from there - git, perl ? )

New syntax / renaming

  • target_os() => os() # implemented but should be documented
  • meta.txt => task.txt (???)
  • sparrow.json => sparrow6.json (?)

New features

These features are almost done, just list them here

  • Task states ( ability to exchange data between tasks )
  • config.pl6 support (???)
  • m10
  • streams # streams presented as a Hash ( need to document )
  • streams_arrays # streams presented as an Array ( need to document )
  • dump_streams ( implemeted for Perl, need to document )
  • note: expressions ( done, need to document )
  • m10 ( need to add more helpers )
  • Low priority - document Sparrow6::Task::Runner Class
  • Low priority - document m10 feature ( METEN - Minimalistic Embedded Testing Engine )
  • Low priority - s6 --install install plugin without plugin name ( read data from sparrow.json in CWD )

Documentation

  • hook set_stdout gets merged with task stdout in ( implimented, need to document )
  • task check is not triggered if there is no task ( implimented, need to document ) - breaking changes

Questionable

  • Sparrowdo - Sparrow6::DSL::Assert - workaround for input_param method
  • Sparrowdo - support for target_host
  • Sparrowdo - cwd cli support ( do we need it? )
  • Sparrowdo - vagrant support ( do we need it ? )
  • Sparrowdo - git ( Sparrlets support, do we need it ? )
  • Sparrowdo - var=name=value command line support
  • Sparrowdo - module_run, task_run cli options support
  • Deprecate set_stdout (???), hook stdout should contribute to task stdout (???)
  • Don't allow generators/codes if check failures (???)
  • Handle code failures in task checks (???)
  • Impliment cwd parameter for Sparrow6 tasks
  • Use api/v2 instead of api/v1
  • meta.txt support
  • Supporting outthentic messages
  • Color/nocolor output
  • Dry run support (??? is it possible with Sparrow6? I doubt)
  • suite.json config support

Medium priority

  • Port existed Sparrowdo:: Modules to Sparrow6
  • Adjust existing Sparrow plugins ( documentation fixes, compatibility with Sparrow6 core )
  • Plugins - fix Perl5 generators as Array refs
  • Write tests for Ruby common libraries - $task-dir/common.rb $root-dir/common.rb
  • Write tests for Powershell streams support

Low priority

  • s6 cli - save / restore tasks
  • Task descriptions (task.txt)
  • dump_streams() implimentation for Ruby, Python, Powershell
  • Windows support ( run stories, run hooks )
  • Catch stderr for hooks/stories (?)
  • Don't strip comments from one-line code and generator expressions

Other tools support

  • Switch Sparky to Updated Sparrowdo version ( done partly, need to check )
  • Port Sparrowform to Sparrow6
  • Make Old Sparrowhub plugins compatible with Sparrow6

Breaking changes

  • SparrowHub is removed
  • truncating to the match_l is removed, we reports check results as is, even for really long matched strings (examples/match-length.pl6)
  • :blank is deprecated, you should use regexp: ^^ \s* $$ instead
  • suite.ini, suite.json are not supported
  • story.pm files are not supported
  • task recursive execution is not supported
  • outthentic_die, outthentic_exit functions are not supported
  • old reports formats ("production, default, concise") are not supported
  • private plugins supports dropped in favor of private repositories
