A Tiny Test Framework for Go

GoDoc

A tiny test framework for making short, useful assertions in your Go tests.

Assert(t, have, want) and Refute(t, have, want) abort a test immediately with t.Fatal.

Expect(t, have, want) and Reject(t, have, want) allow a test to continue, reporting failure at the end with t.Error.

They print nice error messages, preserving the order of have (actual result) before want (expected result) to minimize confusion.

Usage

Examples of passing tests from readme_test.go:

func TestExample(t *testing.T) {
    st.Expect(t, "a", "a")
    st.Reject(t, 42, int64(42))

    st.Assert(t, "b", "b")
    st.Refute(t, 99, int64(99))
}

func TestTableExample(t *testing.T) {
    examples := []struct{ a, b string }{
        {"first", "first"},
        {"second", "second"},
    }

    // Pass the index to improve the error message for table-based tests.
    for i, ex := range examples {
        st.Expect(t, ex, ex, i)
        st.Reject(t, ex, &ex, i)
    }

    // Cannot pass index into Assert or Refute, they fail fast.
    for _, ex := range examples {
        st.Assert(t, ex, ex)
        st.Refute(t, ex, &ex)
    }
}
=== RUN TestExample
--- PASS: TestExample (0.00 seconds)
=== RUN TestTableExample
--- PASS: TestTableExample (0.00 seconds)
PASS

Failing tests produce nice output:

func TestFailedExpectationMessages(t *testing.T) {
    st.Expect(t, 1, 2)
    st.Reject(t, "same", "same")
    var typedNil *string
    st.Expect(t, typedNil, nil) // in Go, a typed nil != nil
}

func TestFailedAssertMessage(t *testing.T) {
    type chicken struct{}
    type egg struct{}
    st.Assert(t, egg{}, chicken{})
}

func TestFailedRefuteMessage(t *testing.T) {
    st.Reject(t, 42, 7*6)
}

func TestFailedTableMessages(t *testing.T) {
    table := []struct{ val int }{
        {0}, {1}, {2},
    }
    // Continues if expectation fails
    for i, example := range table {
        st.Expect(t, example.val, 1, i)
    }
    // Stops when first assertion fails
    for _, example := range table {
        st.Assert(t, example.val, 1)
    }
}

func TestDeeperEquality(t *testing.T) {
    type testStr string
    slice1 := []interface{}{"A", 1, []byte("steak sauce")}
    slice2 := []interface{}{"R", 2, 'd', int64(2)}
    map1 := map[string]string{"clever": "crafty", "modest": "prim"}
    map2 := map[string]string{"silk": "scarf", "wool": "sweater"}
    str1 := "same"
    str2 := testStr("same")

    st.Expect(t, slice1, slice2)
    st.Reject(t, slice1, slice1)
    st.Expect(t, map1, map2)
    st.Reject(t, map1, map1)
    st.Expect(t, str1, str2)
    st.Reject(t, str1, str1)
