Examples

require 'nanotest'
include  Nanotest

assert {     1 == 1 }
assert {     2  > 1 }
assert { not 1  > 2 }
assert {     1 == 2 } #line 12

outputs:

...F
(examples.rb:012) assertion failed

API

Nanotest has a single method: #assert. You can either include Nanotest as above, or use its method directly: Nanotest.assert { true }. Its block is expected to return a boolean. If it's false it fails, otherwise it passes. Simple as that.

#assert also accepts a custom failure message:

assert("foo is too small") { @foo > 5 } #line 36
#=> (examples.rb:036) foo is too small

That's pretty much it. Maximum Simplicity. If you insist on doing something fancy, check out the wiki for a few tips and tricks.
