NAME

Test::Kantan - simple, flexible, fun "Testing framework"

SYNOPSIS

  use Test::Kantan;

  describe 'String', sub {
    describe 'index', sub {
      it 'should return -1 when the value is not matched', sub {
        expect(index("abc", 'x'))->to_be(-1);
        expect(index("abc", 'a'))->to_be(0);
      };
    };
  };

  done_testing;

DESCRIPTION

Test::Kantan is a behavior-driven development framework for testing Perl 5 code. It has a clean, obvious syntax so that you can easily write tests.

CURRENT STATUS

Unstable. I will change the API without notice.

Interfaces

There is 3 types for describing test cases.

BDD style

RSpec/Jasmine like BDD style function names are available.

  describe 'String', sub {
    before_each { ... };
    describe 'index', sub {
      it 'should return -1 when the value is not matched', sub {
        expect(index("abc", 'x'))->to_be(-1);
        expect(index("abc", 'a'))->to_be(0);
      };
    };
  };

  done_testing;

Given-When-Then style

There is the Given-When-Then style functions. It's really useful for describing real complex problems.

  Scenario 'String', sub {
    setup { ... };

    Feature 'Get the index from the code', sub {
      Given 'the string';
      my $str = 'abc';

      When 'get the index for "a"';
      my $i = index($str, 'a');

      Then 'the return value is 0';
      expect($i)->to_be(0);
    };
  };

  done_testing;

Plain old Test::More style

  subtest 'String', sub {
    setup { ... };

    subtest 'index', sub {
      expect(index("abc", 'x'))->to_be(-1);
      expect(index("abc", 'a'))->to_be(0);
    };
  };

  done_testing;

Assertions

Here is 2 type assertions.

ok()

    ok { 1 };

There is the ok function. It takes one code block. The code returns true value if the test case was passed, false otherwise.

ok() returns the value what returned by the code.

expect()

    expect($x)->to_be_true;

Here is the expect function like RSpec/Jasmine. For more details, please look Test::Kantan::Expect.

Utility functions

diag($message)

You can show the diagnostic message with diag() function. Diagnostic message would not print if whole test cases in the subtest were passed.

It means, you can call diag() without worries about the messages is a obstacle.

ignore()

The same as Test::Deep::NoTest's one. See also "ignore()" in Test::Deep

spy_on()

The same as "spy_on()" in Module::Spy

skip_all()

Skips all of the tests that are in the hereafter.

Hooks

setup()

    setup { do_something() };

setup blocks are run before each example setup blocks are run once before all of the examples in a group.

teardown()

    teardown { do_something() };

teardown blocks are run after each example teardown blocks are run once after all of the examples in a group.

before_each()

Alias of setup().

after_each

Alias of teardown().

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

KANTAN_REPORTER

You can specify the reporter class by KANTAN_REPORTER environment variable.

    KANTAN_REPORTER=TAP perl -Ilib t/01_simple.t
KANTAN_CUTOFF

Kantan cut the diagnostic message by 80 bytes by default. If you want to change this value, you can set by KANTAN_CUTOFF.

    KANTAN_CUTOFF=10000 perl -Ilib t/01_simple.t

Tips

How do I suppress output from Log::Minimal?

Log::Minimal outputs logs to STDERR by default.

    $Log::Minimal::PRINT = sub {
        my ( $time, $type, $message, $trace,$raw_message) = @_;
        local $Test::Kantan::Level = $Test::Kantan::Level + 3;
        Test::Kantan::diag("$time [$type] $message at $trace", 1024);
    };

How do I use the testing library based on Test::Builder?

Test::Kantan replace some methods in Test::Builder. You can use the library based on Test::Builder with Test::Kantan :)
