EGAssertEqual() with accuracy

2023-11-07T22:20:52Z

Added a new assertion EGAssertEqual() that adds an accuracy parameter for approximate comparison.

EGTest

This package is for parameterized testing.

Top-Level Struct

EG - ("for example") - a struct to hold inputs and outputs. You typically create an array of EG values, then pass them to the check() method.

EG's fields:

  • input: Input (generic) - the input arguments; use a tuple (or wrap in a struct or class) for multiple values. Use it to compute the actual value for your assertions.
  • expect: Output (generic) (label required) - the expected output. Use it to compute the expected value for your assertions.
  • message: String - a message you can attach to your assertions. Defaults to an empty string.
  • file: StaticString - the file name you would typically include as an argument to your assertions. Defaults to #file, so you usually omit this argument.
  • line: UInt - the line number you would typically include as an argument to your assertions. Defaults to #line, so you usually omit this argument.

Example:

EG("abcd", expect: 4, "length > 0")

msg() - provides the message from the EG struct, prefixed by its line number. You can use this as the message to your assertions.

Top-Level Functions

EGAssertEqual() - calls XCTAssertEqual, passing it the expected value, message, file, and line number from the EG instance. If the actual type is not equatable, you'll need to use XCTAssertEqual directly.

  func EGAssertEqual<T: Equatable, Input>(
      _ actual: T, 
      _ expected: EG<Input, T>
  )

EGAssertEqual() - calls XCTAssertEqual, passing it the expected value, accuracy, message, file, and line number from the EG instance. If the actual type is not equatable, you'll need to use XCTAssertEqual directly.

  func EGAssertEqual<T: Equatable, Input>(
      _ actual: T, 
      _ expected: EG<Input, T>,
      accuracy: T
  ) where T: FloatingPoint

EGAssertThrowsError() - calls XCTAssertThrowsError, passing it the expression, the message from the example, and an optional function that can compare the example and the error.

public func EGAssertThrowsError<Ignored, Input, Expected: Equatable>(
  _ expression: @escaping @autoclosure () throws -> Ignored,
  _ example: EG<Input, Expected>
)

and

public func EGAssertThrowsError<Ignored, Input, Expected: Equatable>(
  _ expression: @escaping @autoclosure () throws -> Ignored,
  _ example: EG<Input, Expected>,
  _ errorHandler: (EG<Input, Expected>, Error) -> Void
)

XCTestCase Extensions

eg() - lets you create EG examples with the lower-case name eg. Takes the same arguments as the EG struct.

check() - runs a list of test cases against an assertion. With XCT assert functions, pass in the file and line so that your test case is highlighted if the assertion fails. Usually, prefer the variadic form, but you have the array form if you need it.

func check<Input, Output>(
    _ tests: EG<Input, Output>...,
    assertFunction: (EG<Input, Output>) -> ()) {...}

or

func check<Input, Output>(
    _ tests: [EG<Input, Output>],
    _ assertFunction: (EG<Input, Output>) -> ()) {...}

check() throws - like check(), but allows you to call an assertion that might fail. Usually, prefer the variadic form, but you have the array form if you need it.

  func check<Input, Output>(
    _ tests: EG<Input, Output>...,
    assertFunction: (EG<Input, Output>) throws -> Void
  ) throws 

or

  func check<Input, Output>(
    _ tests: [EG<Input, Output>],
    _ assertFunction: (EG<Input, Output>) throws -> Void
  ) throws 

allPairs() - Creates a list of pairs of any types.

  func allPairs<T1, T2>(
    _ t1s: [T1],
    _ t2s: [T2])
      -> [(T1,T2)]

allTriples() - Creates a list of triples of any types.

  func allTriples<T1, T2, T3>(
    _ t1s: [T1],
    _ t2s: [T2],
    _ t3s: [T3]) 
      -> [(T1, T2, T3)]

Examples

Note that the XCTAssertEqual call passes the file and line. To see the difference in reporting, make a test case fail, run it, and compare it to what happens when file and line are omitted. The second example shows the same test using EGAssertEqual.

class Demo {
  func stringOfSum(_ a: Int, _ b: Int) -> String {
    return "\(a + b)"
  }
}

final class ExampleTests: XCTestCase {
  func testStringOfSumAllPass() {
    check([
      EG((-1, 1), expect: "0", "zero"),
      eg((3, 0), expect: "3", "one-digit"),
      eg((-2, 1), expect: "-1", "negative")
    ]) { example in
      let my = Demo()
      let actual = my.stringOfSum(example.input.0, example.input.1)
      XCTAssertEqual(actual, example.expect, example.msg(), file: example.file, line: example.line)
    }
  }
}

final class ExampleTests2: XCTestCase {
  func testStringOfSumAllPass() {
    check([
      EG((-1, 1), expect: "0", "zero"),
      eg((3, 0), expect: "3", "one-digit"),
      eg((-2, 1), expect: "-1", "negative")
    ]) { example in
      let my = Demo()
      let actual = my.stringOfSum(example.input.0, example.input.1)
      EGAssertEqual(actual, example)
    }
  }
}

  func iAlwaysThrow() throws { throw "I threw" }

  func testAssertThrowsSucceeds_WhenThrownAndErrorIsRight() {
    EGAssertThrowsError(try self.iAlwaysThrow(), eg("ignored", expect: "I threw")) { example, error in
      let actualMessage: String = error as! String
      EGAssertEqual(actualMessage, example)
    }
  }
