test-turtle

This package a simple language-agnostic test runner which uses memoization based on file dependency information provided by the user. The problem that this package is trying to solve is avoiding to re-test files that are known to be unaffected by a change.

Requirements

  1. Test File Mapping: Each file to be tested should have a dedicated test file whose path can be computed based on the path of the file it is testing. The user have to provide a regular expression and a template to compute a the path of the test file from any given target file. For instance, if lib/foo.mjs is tested by test/foo.mjs, then the regular expression /^lib/(.*)$/ with the template test/$1 should be provided.
  2. No cyclic dependencies: This package relies on a partial ordering between files where any given file can only import files which are below itself. Cycles between file imports renders this impossible.
  3. Single directory: This package does not visit directories multiple times. Hence the directory layout must be reflected by the ordering. For instance the imports foo < lib/bar < qux are fine. But the imports foo < lib/bar < qux < lib/buz cannot be handled by this package.
  4. Ordering files: Every directory (deeply) containing files to test should contain a file (named .test.list by default) which provide a partial ordering of the elements of the directory.

Getting Started

npm install test-turtle
npx test-turtle --target <target> --format <format> -- /bin/sh -c 'node $TURTLE_TEST'
  • target: the directory to start collecting files.
  • format: specify how to fetch test files.
    • "separated": the test files are located in the dedicated test/ directory which mirrors the lib/ directory.
    • "alongside": the test files are located alongside the file they are testing with an additional .test extension -- eg: foo.js and foo.test.js.

Warning By default all files are considered to be independent from each others. Specifying dependencies requires the presence of ordering files.

Demonstration

Installation:

git clone https://github.com/lachrist/test-turtle.git
cd test-turtle
npm i

First run (everything is tested):

node ./lib/bin.mjs --target sample --layout alongside -- /bin/sh -c 'npx c8 --include $TURTLE_MAIN -- node $TURTLE_TEST'
foo.js...
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
File      | % Stmts | % Branch | % Funcs | % Lines | Uncovered Line #s 
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
All files |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
 foo.js   |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
> Success
bar/index.js...
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
File      | % Stmts | % Branch | % Funcs | % Lines | Uncovered Line #s 
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
All files |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
 index.js |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
> Success
foobar.js...
-----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
File       | % Stmts | % Branch | % Funcs | % Lines | Uncovered Line #s 
-----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
All files  |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
 foobar.js |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
-----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
> Success

Second run (everything is memoized):

node ./lib/bin.mjs --target sample -- /bin/sh -c 'npx c8 --include $TURTLE_MAIN -- node $TURTLE_TEST'
sample/foo.js...
> Memoized
sample/bar/index.js...
> Memoized
sample/foobar.js...
> Memoized

Modifying sample/foo.js:

echo 'exports.getFoo = () => "f" + "oo";' > sample/foo.js

Third run (bar.js is still memoized):

node ./lib/bin.mjs --target sample -- /bin/sh -c 'npx c8 --include $TURTLE_MAIN -- node $TURTLE_TEST'
sample/foo.js...
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
File      | % Stmts | % Branch | % Funcs | % Lines | Uncovered Line #s 
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
All files |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
 foo.js   |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
> Success
sample/bar/index.js...
> Memoized
sample/foobar.js...
-----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
File       | % Stmts | % Branch | % Funcs | % Lines | Uncovered Line #s 
-----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
All files  |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
 foobar.js |     100 |      100 |     100 |     100 |                   
-----------|---------|----------|---------|---------|-------------------
> Success

Ordering Files

Each directory containing files to test should contain an ordering file. This file is in text format and contain nested lists whose elements are the name of the elements (files and directories) of the directory. Each directory should be terminated by / character. There exists two kinds of lists: ordered lists which are marked with a - character and unordered lists which are marked with a * character.

Example of a configuration file:

- directory1/
- * filename1
  * directory2/
- filename2

The package deduce the following partial ordering:

directory1 < filename1
directory1 < directory2
directory1 < filename2

filename1 < filename2

directory2 < filename2

Note that there is no ordering between filename1 and directory2.
