=head1 NAME

Test::Class::Most - Test Classes the easy way

=head1 VERSION

Version 0.08

=cut

our $VERSION = '0.08';
$VERSION = eval $VERSION;

=head1 SYNOPSIS

Instead of this:

    use strict;
    use warnings;
    use Test::Exception 0.88;
    use Test::Differences 0.500;
    use Test::Deep 0.106;
    use Test::Warn 0.11;
    use Test::More 0.88;

    use parent 'My::Test::Class';

    sub some_test : Tests { ... }

You type this:

    use Test::Class::Most parent => 'My::Test::Class';

    sub some_test : Tests { ... }

=head1 DESCRIPTION

When people write test classes with the excellent C<Test::Class>, you often
see the following at the top of the code:

  package Some::Test::Class;

  use strict;
  use warnings;
  use base 'My::Test::Class';
  use Test::More;
  use Test::Exception;

  # and then the tests ...

That's a lot of boilerplate and I don't like boilerplate.  So now you can do
this:

  use Test::Class::Most parent => 'My::Test::Class';

That automatically imports L<strict> and L<warnings> for you.  It also gives
you all of the testing goodness from L<Test::Most>.

=head1 CREATING YOUR OWN BASE CLASS

You probably want to create your own base class for testing.  To do this,
simply specify no import list:

  package My::Test::Class;
  use Test::Class::Most; # we now inherit from Test::Class

  INIT { Test::Class->runtests }

  1;

And then your other classes inherit as normal (well, the way we do it):

  package Tests::For::Foo;
  use Test::Class::Most parent => 'My::Test::Class';

And you can inherit from those other classes, too:

  package Tests::For::Foo::Child;
  use Test::Class::Most parent => 'Tests::For::Foo';

Of course, it's quite possible that you're a fan of multiple inheritance, so
you can do that, too (I was I<soooooo> tempted to not allow this, but I
figured I shouldn't force too many of my personal beliefs on you):

 package Tests::For::ISuckAtOO;
 use Test::Class::Most parent => [qw/
    Tests::For::Foo
    Tests::For::Bar
    Some::Other::Class::For::Increased::Stupidity
 /];

As a side note, it's recommended that even if you don't need test control
methods in your base class, put stubs in there:

  package My::Test::Class;
  use Test::Class::Most; # we now inherit from Test::Class

  INIT { Test::Class->runtests }

  sub startup  : Tests(startup)  {}
  sub setup    : Tests(setup)    {}
  sub teardown : Tests(teardown) {}
  sub shutdown : Tests(shutdown) {}

  1;

This allows developers to I<always> be able to safely call parent test control
methods rather than wonder if they are there:

  package Tests::For::Customer;
  use Test::Class::Most parent => 'My::Test::Class';

  sub setup : Tests(setup) {
    my $test = shift;
    $test->next::method; # safe due to stub in base class
    ...
  }

=head1 ATTRIBUTES

You can also specify "attributes" which are merely very simple getter/setters.

  use Test::Class::Most 
    parent      => 'My::Test::Class',
    attributes  => [qw/customer items/],
    is_abstract => 1;

  sub setup : Tests(setup) {
    my $test = shift;
    $test->SUPER::setup;
    $test->customer( ... );
    $test->items( ... );
  }

  sub some_tests : Tests {
    my $test     = shift;
    my $customer = $test->customer;
    ...
  }

If called with no arguments, returns the current value.  If called with one
argument, sets that argument as the current value.  If called with more than
one argument, it croaks.

=head1 ABSTRACT CLASSES

You may pass an optional C<is_abstract> parameter in the import list. It takes
a boolean value. This value is advisory only and is not inherited. It defaults
to false if not provided.

Sometimes you want to identify a test class as "abstract". It may have a bunch
of tests, but those should only run for its subclasses. You can pass
C<<is_abstract => 1>> in the import list. Then, to test if a given class or
instance of that class is "abstract":

 sub dont_run_in_abstract_base_class : Tests {
     my $test = shift;
     return if Test::Class::Most->is_abstract($test);
     ...
 }

Note that C<is_abstract> is strictly B<advisory only>. You are expected
(required) to check the value yourself and take appropriate action.

We recommend adding the following method to your base class:

 sub is_abstract {
     my $test = shift;
     return Test::Class::Most->is_abstract($test);
 }

And later in a subclass:

 if ( $test->is_abstract ) { ... }

=head1 EXPORT

All functions from L<Test::Most> are automatically exported into your
namespace.
