The simplest way to autotest your code - no matter what language or framework you use.
Run it from the command line. Specify 1) how tests are launched and 2) how a failed test looks in the terminal.
The tests will run on every file change in your project - results are fed back through a pretty html console, or on the commandline.
keeptesting [options] 'FAILURE-MATCHING-REGEX' 'TEST-COMMAND'
Run tests whenever files change in the current directory or subdirectories.
Spits back indication of test success or failure, based on specified regex that detects errors/failures in the output of a test run. Starts embedded webserver by default, letting you see test feedback in browser window. Can also run in the command line.
If you have a .keeptesting dotfile present, you can just type 'keeptesting' to run with the options, error detection and test command etc specified in the dotfile.
Note: Be sure to use quotes around params like the examples!
-c, --command-line-mode- Commandline mode
-p, --watched-path- Path to watch for changes
-d, --store-dotfile- Save current keeptesting config in dotfile
-h, --help- Display usage
-v, --version- Display version number
keeptesting 'Error|Failure' 'rake test' - Run tests whenever anything changes
keeptesting -p 'test' -p 'lib' 'Error|Failure' 'rake test'- Test on changes in test/ or lib/
keeptesting -d 'Error|Failure' 'rake test'- Store current config in .keeptesting
keeptesting - Run using .keeptesting config file
You must have some version of Ruby and RubyGems installed first. That's it.
gem install keeptesting
