David W. Body / Big Creek Software, LLC

Minitest is a simple, fast, extensible test framework that is included in the Ruby standard library. It's perfect for small projects where something like RSpec might be overkill, but it's also used on projects as large as Ruby on Rails.

We'll take a look at how easy it is to use Minitest. We'll also look at some features of Minitest that you might not have known about, including

  • Optional RSpec-like DSL and matchers
  • Test double support (stubs and mocks)
  • Benchmarking support

David W. Body is an independent software developer and President of Big Creek Software, LLC. This will be his last meeting as organizer of the Iowa Ruby Brigade. Follow him on Twitter at @david_body.
