testfast

A lightweight testing framework for Julia. Recursively finds your Julia test files and runs them, with some helpful setup/teardown functionality to DRY up your tests a little bit.

Installation

Install testfast from your Julia repl:

Pkg.clone("git://github.com/Veraticus/testfast.jl.git")

Then create the testfast.jl file in your test/ directory. (This is your test helper -- it'll start the tests and you can put global setup/teardown istuff in it.) It doesn't need any more content than this:

using Testfast

Testfast.run!()

Usage

A Test File

A testfast test file's name must end with test and have the .jl extension -- otherwise it won't be run by testfast. It should ideally contain a bunch of tests, defined using the @test macro:

@test "this is the name of the test" begin
  @assert 1 == 1
end

You can also define @before_all, @setup, @teardown and/or @after_all if you need to perform some common setup or cleanup for all your tests.

@before_all

Run only once for each test file, before all tests are run.

@setup

Run before each test in the test file.

@teardown

Run after each test in the test file.

@after_all

Run only once for each test file, after all tests are run.

Running

Once you've authored your tests, run them:

$ julia test/testfast.jl
..........

10 tests run.
10 passed, 0 failed in 0.0189 seconds.
