PlutoTest.jl (alpha release)
Visual, reactive testing library for Julia
@test that you can use to verify your code's correctness. But instead of just saying "Pass" or "Fail", let's try to show you why a test failed.

Install & use
First, update Pluto to at least
0.14.5! Next, add this package like so:
julia> import Pkg; Pkg.add(Pkg.PackageSpec(url="https://github.com/JuliaPluto/PlutoTest.jl")) julia> using PlutoTest julia> @test 1 + 1 == 2
This package is still an alpha release, don't use it to
This testing library is designed to be used inside Pluto.jl, a reactive notebook. If you write your tests in the same notebook as your code, then Pluto will automatically re-run the affected tests after you make a change. Tests that are unaffected will not need to re-run. Neat!
When a test gets re-run and it fails outside of your viewport, you will be notified with a red dot on the edge of the screen. You can click on a dot to jump to the test, multiple dots indicate multiple tests.
(Only enabled on Chrome and Firefox for now.)
Future: GitHub Action
In the future, it will be easy to run Pluto-based, PlutoTest-based tests automatically on GitHub Actions or Travis CI. In addition to running your tests, it will upload a rendered notebook as artifact to the test run (sample). If a test failed, you can open the notebook and see why.
How does it work?
