As soon as you save a file, autotest will run the matching tests.
This is a fork of the ZenTest package to extract autotest from it.
Improvements over ZenTest
- possibility to not run all tests after a failed test passes
- possibility to use alternative config file
- simplified test setup
- simplified packaging
- less globals flying around
- integration tests
Uninstall ZenTest first, or autotest will not be found: sudo gem uninstall ZenTest Install: sudo gem install autotest Optional: Support for Test::Unit on Rails sudo gem install autotest-rails-pure Optional: an ZenTest without Autotest version: sudo gem install zentest-without-autotest
- go to a project folder with tests/specs/...
- run autotest
-f, --fast-start Do not run full tests at start -c, --no-full-after-failed Do not run full tests after failed test passed -v, --verbose Be verbose. Prints files that autotest doesn't know how to map to tests -q, --quiet Be quiet. -r, --rc Path to config file. (Defaults to ~/.autotest or current_dir/.autotest) -h, --help Show this.
- you need diff.exe on windows. Try http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages.html
- add documentation for hooks
- cleanup bin/autotest Dir hacks
- remove globals from unitdiff
- add some automatic notifications e.g. autotest -n -> use any notify library found
