MiniShoulda¶ ↑

A minimal shoulda DSL built on top of MiniTest::Spec. MiniTest is the future, and we should all be using it! No pun. The MiniShoulda gem is a simple set of alias built on top of MiniTest so that we can use basic shoulda syntax. A simple example says it all.

class MyTestClass < MiniTest::Spec

  setup do
    @object = Object.new
  end

  teardown do
    @object.freeze
  end

  should 'find object' do
    assert @object
    refute_instance_of Object, @object
  end

  should_eventually 'works too' do
    refute true, 'will use skip and not run'
  end

  context 'with another context' do

    setup do
      @object = [1,2,3]
    end

    should 'just work' do
      assert_includes @object, 2
    end

  end

end

Install¶ ↑

$ gem install mini_shoulda

What About ActiveRecord Macros¶ ↑

It is not my goal to implement all the ActiveRecord macros nor things like should_have_db_columns :)

Any Hacks?¶ ↑

Not really. MiniShoulda is built on top of the existing MiniTest::Spec methods. Basically they are just a series of aliases to those methods. Our only monkey patch is in MiniTest's Kernel#describe method so you can maintain class scope in your own test cases. Please help me lobby the MiniTest team to get that patch in.
