Minitest::Mock

Minitest::Mock

A simple and clean mock system. There two essential methods at our disposal: expect and verify.

require 'minitest/autorun'

describe Twipster, "Make every tweet a hipster tweet." do
  before do
    @twitter  = Minitest::Mock.new
    @twipster = Twipster.new(@twitter)
  end

  it "should append a #lolhipster hashtag and update Twitter with our status" do
    tweet = "Skyrim? Too mainstream."
    @twitter.expect :update, true, ["#{tweet} #lolhipster"]
    @twipster.submit(tweet)
    assert @twitter.verify # verifies tweet and hashtag was passed to `@twitter.update`
  end
end
