ExUnit v1.8.1 ExUnit.Formatter View Source

Helper functions for formatting and the formatting protocols.

Formatters are GenServers specified during ExUnit configuration that receive a series of events as casts.

The following events are possible:

  • {:suite_started, opts} - the suite has started with the specified options to the runner.

  • {:suite_finished, run_us, load_us} - the suite has finished. run_us and load_us are the run and load times in microseconds respectively.

  • {:module_started, test_module} - a test module has started. See ExUnit.TestModule for details.

  • {:module_finished, test_module} - a test module has finished. See ExUnit.TestModule for details.

  • {:test_started, test} - a test has started. See ExUnit.Test for details.

  • {:test_finished, test} - a test has finished. See ExUnit.Test for details.

The formatter will also receive the following events but they are deprecated and should be ignored:

  • {:case_started, test_module} - a test module has started. See ExUnit.TestCase for details.

  • {:case_finished, test_module} - a test module has finished. See ExUnit.TestCase for details.

The full ExUnit configuration is passed as the argument to init/1 when the formatters are started. If you need to do runtime configuration of a formatter, you can add any configuration needed by using ExUnit.configure/1 or ExUnit.start/1, and this will then be included in the options passed to the GenServer's init/1 callback.

format_test_all_failure(test_module, failures, counter, width, formatter) View Source

Receives a test module and formats its failure.

Link to this function

format_test_failure(test, failures, counter, width, formatter) View Source

Receives a test and formats its failure.

format_time(run_us, load_us) View Source
format_time(run_us(), load_us()) :: String.t()

Formats time taken running the test suite.

It receives the time spent running the tests and optionally the time spent loading the test suite.

Examples

iex> format_time(10000, nil)
"Finished in 0.01 seconds"

iex> format_time(10000, 20000)
"Finished in 0.03 seconds (0.02s on load, 0.01s on tests)"

iex> format_time(10000, 200_000)
"Finished in 0.2 seconds (0.2s on load, 0.01s on tests)"
