EUnit 2.0 alpha testers wanted
Wed Apr 19 00:43:06 CEST 2006
I have sort of stolen the EUnit project from Mickael Remond,
with his permission (and he even lets me use his svn server).
The new EUnit is based on some ideas I once used for automated
testing of student assignments (plus the usual unit testing
ideas from JUnit, PyUnit, etc.)
- extremely compact notation; tests are _really_ easy to write
- powerful primitives: run tests in order or in parallel,
in separate subprocesses, on separate nodes, or all at once
- easy combination of tests into test suites
- run OS commands as tests and check status and/or output
- watching of modules - when a module is reloaded, its tests
can be executed and reported automatically
- other stuff that I forget at the moment
- no documentation (yet) - use the Source! (many examples can
be found in the code)
Remember, this is alpha testing - you are expected to have
some patience finding out how to use it, and not be too upset if
some interface details change later (possibly as a consequence of
feedback from alpha testers).
Let me know what you think!
