NAME

Test::Moose::More - More tools for testing Moose packages

VERSION

This document describes version 0.035 of Test::Moose::More - released August 26, 2015 as part of Test-Moose-More.

SYNOPSIS

    use Test::Moose::More;

    is_class_ok 'Some::Class';
    is_role_ok  'Some::Role';
    has_method_ok 'Some::Class', 'foo';

    # ... etc

DESCRIPTION

This package contains a number of additional tests that can be employed against Moose classes/roles. It is intended to replace Test::Moose in your tests, and re-exports any tests that it has and we do not, yet.

FUNCTIONS

known_sugar

Returns a list of all the known standard Moose sugar (has, extends, etc).

TEST FUNCTIONS

meta_ok $thing

Tests $thing to see if it has a metaclass; $thing may be the class name or instance of the class you wish to check.

does_ok $thing, < $role | \@roles >, [ $message ]

Checks to see if $thing does the given roles. $thing may be the class name or instance of the class you wish to check.

Note that the message will be taken verbatim unless it contains %s somewhere; this will be replaced with the name of the role being tested for.

does_not_ok $thing, < $role | \@roles >, [ $message ]

Checks to see if $thing does not do the given roles. $thing may be the class name or instance of the class you wish to check.

Note that the message will be taken verbatim unless it contains %s somewhere; this will be replaced with the name of the role being tested for.

has_attribute_ok $thing, $attribute_name, [ $message ]

Checks $thing for an attribute named $attribute_name; $thing may be a class name, instance, or role name.

has_method_ok $thing, @methods

Queries $thing's metaclass to see if $thing has the methods named in @methods.

role_wraps_around_method_ok $role, @methods

Queries $role's metaclass to see if $role wraps the methods named in @methods with an around method modifier.

role_wraps_before_method_ok $role, @methods

Queries $role's metaclass to see if $role wraps the methods named in @methods with an before method modifier.

role_wraps_after_method_ok $role, @methods

Queries $role's metaclass to see if $role wraps the methods named in @methods with an after method modifier.

requires_method_ok $thing, @methods

Queries $thing's metaclass to see if $thing requires the methods named in @methods.

Note that this really only makes sense if $thing is a role.

is_immutable_ok $thing

Passes if $thing is immutable.

is_not_immutable_ok $thing

Passes if $thing is not immutable; that is, is mutable.

is_role_ok $thing

Passes if $thing's metaclass is a Moose::Meta::Role.

is_class_ok $thing

Passes if $thing's metaclass is a Moose::Meta::Class.

is_anon_ok $thing

Passes if $thing is "anonymous".

is_not_anon_ok $thing

Passes if $thing is not "anonymous".

check_sugar_removed_ok $thing

Ensures that all the standard Moose sugar is no longer directly callable on a given package.

check_sugar_ok $thing

Checks and makes sure a class/etc can still do all the standard Moose sugar.

validate_thing

Runs a bunch of tests against the given $thing, as defined:

    validate_thing $thing => (

        attributes => [ ... ],
        methods    => [ ... ],
        isa        => [ ... ],

        # ensures sugar is/is-not present
        sugar      => 0,

        # ensures $thing does these roles
        does       => [ ... ],

        # ensures $thing does not do these roles
        does_not   => [ ... ],
    );

$thing can be the name of a role or class, an object instance, or a metaclass.

  • -subtest => 'subtest name...'

    If set, all tests run will be wrapped in a subtest, the name of which will be whatever -subtest is set to.

  • isa => [ ... ]

    A list of superclasses thing should have.

  • anonymous => 0|1

    Check to see if the class is/isn't anonymous.

  • does => [ ... ]

    A list of roles the thing should do.

  • does_not => [ ... ]

    A list of roles the thing should not do.

  • attributes => [ ... ]

    The attributes list specified here is in the form of a list of names, each optionally followed by a hashref of options to test the attribute for; this hashref takes the same arguments "validate_attribute" does. e.g.:

        validate_thing $thing => (
    
            attributes => [
                'foo',
                'bar',
                baz => { is => 'ro', ... },
                'bip',
            ],
        );
  • methods => [ ... ]

    A list of methods the thing should have.

  • sugar => 0|1

    Ensure that thing can/cannot do the standard Moose sugar.

validate_role

The same as validate_thing(), but ensures $thing is a role, and allows for additional role-specific tests.

    validate_role $thing => (

        required_methods => [ ... ],

        # ...and all other options from validate_thing()
    );
  • -compose => 0|1

    When true, attempt to compose the role into an anonymous class, then use it to run "validate_class". The options we're given are passed to validate_class() directly, except that any required_methods entry is removed and its contents pushed onto methods. (A stub method for each entry in required_methods will also be created in the new class.)

    e.g.:

        ok 1 - TestRole has a metaclass
        ok 2 - TestRole is a Moose role
        ok 3 - TestRole requires method blargh
        ok 4 - TestRole does TestRole
        ok 5 - TestRole does not do TestRole::Two
        ok 6 - TestRole has method method1
        ok 7 - TestRole has an attribute named bar
            # Subtest: role composed into Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1
            ok 1 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 has a metaclass
            ok 2 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 is a Moose class
            ok 3 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 does TestRole
            ok 4 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 does not do TestRole::Two
            ok 5 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 has method method1
            ok 6 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 has method blargh
            ok 7 - Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1 has an attribute named bar
            1..7
        ok 8 - role composed into Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1
        1..8
  • -subtest => 'subtest name...'

    If set, all tests run will be wrapped in a subtest, the name of which will be whatever -subtest is set to.

  • required_methods => [ ... ]

    A list of methods the role requires a consuming class to supply.

  • before => [ ... ]

    A list of methods the role expects to wrap before, on application to a class.

    See "before" in Moose for information on before method modifiers.

  • around => [ ... ]

    A list of methods the role expects to wrap around, on application to a class.

    See "around" in Moose for information on around method modifiers.

  • after => [ ... ]

    A list of methods the role expects to wrap after, on application to a class.

    See "after" in Moose for information on after method modifiers.

validate_class

The same as validate_thing(), but ensures $thing is a class, and allows for additional class-specific tests.

    validate_class $thing => (

        isa  => [ ... ],

        attributes => [ ... ],
        methods    => [ ... ],
        isa        => [ ... ],

        # ensures sugar is/is-not present
        sugar      => 0,

        # ensures $thing does these roles
        does       => [ ... ],

        # ensures $thing does not do these roles
        does_not   => [ ... ],

        # ...and all other options from validate_thing()
    );
  • -subtest => 'subtest name...'

    If set, all tests run will be wrapped in a subtest, the name of which will be whatever -subtest is set to.

  • immutable => 0|1

    Checks the class to see if it is/isn't immutable.

validate_attribute

validate_attribute() allows you to test how an attribute looks once built and attached to a class.

Let's say you have an attribute defined like this:

    has foo => (
        traits  => [ 'TestRole' ],
        is      => 'ro',
        isa     => 'Int',
        builder => '_build_foo',
        lazy    => 1,
    );

You can use validate_attribute() to ensure that it's built out in the way you expect:

    validate_attribute TestClass => foo => (

        # tests the attribute metaclass instance to ensure it does the roles
        -does => [ 'TestRole' ],
        # tests the attribute metaclass instance's inheritance
        -isa  => [ 'Moose::Meta::Attribute' ], # for demonstration's sake

        traits   => [ 'TestRole' ],
        isa      => 'Int',
        does     => 'Bar',
        handles  => { },
        reader   => 'foo',
        builder  => '_build_foo',
        default  => undef,
        init_arg => 'foo',
        lazy     => 1,
        required => undef,
    );

Options passed to validate_attribute() prefixed with '-' test the attribute's metaclass instance rather than a setting on the attribute; that is, '-does' ensures that the metaclass does a particular role (e.g. MooseX::AttributeShortcuts), while 'does' tests the setting of the attribute to require the value do a given role.

This function takes all the options "attribute_options_ok" takes, as well as the following:

  • -subtest => 'subtest name...'

    If set, all tests run will be wrapped in a subtest, the name of which will be whatever -subtest is set to.

attribute_options_ok

Validates that an attribute is set up as expected; like validate_attribute(), but only concerns itself with attribute options.

Note that some of these options will skip if used against attributes defined in a role.

  • is => ro|rw

    Tests for reader/writer options set as one would expect.

  • isa => ...

    Validates that the attribute requires its value to be a given type.

  • does => ...

    Validates that the attribute requires its value to do a given role.

  • builder => '...'

    Validates that the attribute expects the method name given to be its builder.

  • default => ...

    Validates that the attribute has the given default.

  • init_arg => '...'

    Validates that the attribute has the given initial argument name.

  • lazy => 0|1

    Validates that the attribute is/isn't lazy.

  • required => 0|1

    Validates that setting the attribute's value is/isn't required.
