Module: Minitest::Assertions

Included in:
Test
Defined in:
lib/minitest/assertions.rb

Overview

Minitest Assertions. All assertion methods accept a msg which is printed if the assertion fails.

Protocol: Nearly everything here boils up to assert, which expects to be able to increment an instance accessor named assertions. This is not provided by Assertions and must be provided by the thing including Assertions. See Minitest::Runnable for an example.

#assert_equal(exp, act, msg = nil) ⇒ Object

Fails unless exp == act printing the difference between the two, if possible.

If there is no visible difference but the assertion fails, you should suspect that your #== is buggy, or your inspect output is missing crucial details.

For floats use assert_in_delta.

#assert_output(stdout = nil, stderr = nil) ⇒ Object

Fails if stdout or stderr do not output the expected results. Pass in nil if you don't care about that streams output. Pass in “” if you require it to be silent. Pass in a regexp if you want to pattern match.

  (!stdout || x) && (!stderr || y)
end

#assert_predicate(o1, op, msg = nil) ⇒ Object

For testing with predicates. Eg:

#assert_raises(*exp) ⇒ Object

Fails unless the block raises one of exp. Returns the exception matched so you can check the message, attributes, etc.

exp takes an optional message on the end to help explain failures and defaults to StandardError if no exception class is passed.

  }

end

#capture_ioObject

Captures $stdout and $stderr into strings:

out, err = capture_io do
  puts "Some info"
  warn "You did a bad thing"
end

assert_match %r%info%, out
assert_match %r%bad%, err

NOTE: For efficiency, this method uses StringIO and does not capture IO for subprocesses. Use #capture_subprocess_io for that.

end

#capture_subprocess_ioObject

Captures $stdout and $stderr into strings, using Tempfile to ensure that subprocess IO is captured as well.

out, err = capture_subprocess_io do
  system "echo Some info"
  system "echo You did a bad thing 1>&2"
end

assert_match %r%info%, out
assert_match %r%bad%, err

NOTE: This method is approximately 10x slower than #capture_io so only use it when you need to test the output of a subprocess.

#diff(exp, act) ⇒ Object

Returns a diff between exp and act. If there is no known diff command or if it doesn't make sense to diff the output (single line, short output), then it simply returns a basic comparison between the two.

#refute_predicate(o1, op, msg = nil) ⇒ Object

For testing with predicates.

refute_predicate str, :empty?

This is really meant for specs and is front-ended by refute_operator:

#skip(msg = nil, bt = caller) ⇒ Object

Skips the current run. If run in verbose-mode, the skipped run gets listed at the end of the run but doesn't cause a failure exit code.

#skipped?Boolean

Was this testcase skipped? Meant for #teardown.

Returns:
