Death to haphazard monkey-patching! Extend MiniTest through simple hooks.
gem install minitest-reporters
test_helper.rb file, add the following lines:
require 'minitest/reporters' MiniTest::Unit.runner = MiniTest::SuiteRunner.new MiniTest::Unit.runner.reporters << MiniTest::Reporters::ProgressReporter.new
Now, just run your tests; the reporter you specified will be used and make your output look absolutely gorgeous! If you feel the need to write your own reporter, just
include MiniTest::Reporter and override the methods you’d like. Take a look at the provided reporters for examples.
The following reporters are provided:
MiniTest::Reporters::DefaultReporter # => Identical to the standard MiniTest reporter MiniTest::Reporters::SpecReporter # => Turn-like output that reads like a spec MiniTest::Reporters::ProgressReporter # => Fuubar-like output with a progress bar MiniTest::Reporters::RubyMateReporter # => Simple reporter designed for RubyMate; see below
I really like
ProgressReporter for my everyday terminal usage, but I like using
RubyMateReporter when I’m executing test suites from TextMate. My usual set up looks like this:
require 'minitest/reporters' MiniTest::Unit.runner = MiniTest::SuiteRunner.new if ENV['TM_PID'] MiniTest::Unit.runner.reporters << MiniTest::Reporters::RubyMateReporter.new else MiniTest::Unit.runner.reporters << MiniTest::Reporters::ProgressReporter.new end
- Make the boilerplate code look prettier. Something like a one-line require for the general use-case would be nice.
- Add some example images of the reporters.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don’t break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, but do not mess with the
Rakefile. If you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump the version in a commit by itself in another branch so I can ignore it when I pull.
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for git flow feature branches.
