NAME

Test::Mojo::CommandOutputRole

A role to extend Test::Mojo to make mojo command output tests easy.

Travis CI tests

SYNOPSIS

    my $t = Test::Mojo->new->with_roles('Test::Mojo::CommandOutputRole');

    # Test for string equality
    $t->command_output(do_something => [qw(arg1 arg2)] => 'Expected output',
        'Correct do_something output');

    # Test for regex matching
    $t->command_output(do_something => [qw(arg1 arg2)] =>
        qr/^ \s* Expected\ answer\ is\ [3-5][1-3] \.? $/x,
        'Matching do_something output');

    # Complex test
    $t->command_output(do_something => [] => sub ($output) {
        ok defined($output), 'Output is defined';
        is length($output) => 42, 'Correct length';
    }, 'Output test results OK');

Test results:

    # Subtest: Correct do_something output
        ok 1 - Command didn't die
        ok 2 - Correct output string
        1..2
    ok 3 - Correct do_something output
    # Subtest: Matching do_something output
        ok 1 - Command didn't die
        ok 2 - Output regex
        1..2
    ok 4 - Matching do_something output
    # Subtest: Output test results OK
        ok 1 - Command didn't die
        # Subtest: Handle command output
            ok 1 - Output is defined
            ok 2 - Correct length
            1..2
        ok 2 - Handle command output
        1..2
    ok 5 - Output test results OK

DESCRIPTION

Test::Mojo::CommandOutputRole adds a method command_output to Test::Mojo that offers a convenient way to test the output of commands.

How to use it

This extension is a Role that needs to be added to Test::Mojo via with_role:

    my $t = Test::Mojo->new->with_roles('Test::Mojo::CommandOutputRole');

$t->command_output($command, $args, $test, $test_name);

Runs a "subtest" in Test::More with tests against the output of $command. Arguments:

$command

The name of the command to run.

$args

An array reference of commands for $command.

$test

The test to run the command output against. This can have three types: If it is a simple string, command_output tests for string equality. If it is a regular expression (via qr/.../), it tries to match it against the command output. If it is a code reference (via sub {...}), complex tests can be run inside the given code. The test output is then given as the first argument.

$test_name (optional)

A name for the enclosing subtest, default ist "Output test".
