branch: master
README.rdoc

purdytest

DESCRIPTION:

Purdytest extends minitest with pretty colors. Simply require minitest, then require purdytest, and you have colorific output on your terminal!

For colorized diff output, make sure you have `colordiff` installed.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

SYNOPSIS:

require 'minitest/autorun' # from minitest
require 'purdytest'

describe 'my amazing test' do
  # generate many green dots!
  50.times do |i|
    it "must #{i}" do
      100.must_equal 100
    end
  end

  # generate some red Fs!
  2.times do |i|
    it "compares #{i} to #{i + 1}" do
      i.must_equal i + 1
    end
  end

  it 'does stuff and shows a diff' do
    [1,2,3,4,5].must_equal %w{ a quick brown fox jumped over something! }
  end

  it 'does stuff and shows yellow' do
    skip "don't care!"
  end
end

Output color can be somewhat configured via Purdytest.configure:

require 'minitest/autorun' # from minitest
require 'purdytest'

Purdytest.configure do |io|
  io.pass = :blue
end

describe 'my amazing test' do
  # generate many green dots!
  50.times do |i|
    it "must #{i}" do
      100.must_equal 100
    end
  end
end

For a list of possible configuration options, just check out the purdytest source code.
