Test Case

Overview

This crate provides #[test_case] procedural macro attribute that generates multiple parametrized tests using one body with different input parameters. A test is generated for each data set passed in test_case attribute. Under the hood, all test cases that share same body are grouped into mod, giving clear and readable test results.

Getting Started

First of all you have to add this dependency to your Cargo.toml:

[dev-dependencies]
test-case = "1.0.0"

Additionally, you have to import the procedural macro with use statement:

use test_case::test_case;

The crate depends on proc_macro feature that has been stabilized on rustc 1.29+.

Example usage:

// The next two lines are not needed for 2018 edition or newer
#[cfg(test)]
extern crate test_case;

#[cfg(test)]
mod tests {
    use test_case::test_case;

    // Not needed for this example, but useful in general
    use super::*;

    #[test_case( 4,  2 ; "when operands are swapped")]
    #[test_case(-2, -4 ; "when both operands are negative")]
    fn multiplication_tests(x: i8, y: i8) {
        let actual = (x * y).abs();

        assert_eq!(8, actual)
    }

    // You can still use regular tests too
    #[test]
    fn addition_test() {
        let actual = -2 + 8;
        assert_eq!(6, actual)
    }
}

Output from cargo test for this example:

$ cargo test

running 4 tests
test tests::addition_test ... ok
test tests::multiplication_tests::when_both_operands_are_negative ... ok
test tests::multiplication_tests::when_both_operands_are_positive ... ok
test tests::multiplication_tests::when_operands_are_swapped ... ok

test result: ok. 4 passed; 0 failed; 0 ignored; 0 measured; 0 filtered out

Examples

If your only assertion is just assert_eq!, you can pass the expectation as macro attribute using => syntax:

#[test_case( 2 => 2 ; "returns given number for positive input")]
#[test_case(-2 => 2 ; "returns opposite number for non-positive input")]
#[test_case( 0 => 0 ; "returns 0 for 0")]
fn abs_tests(x: i8) -> i8 {
   if x > 0 { x } else { -x }
}

Which is equivalent to

#[test_case( 2, 2 ; "returns given number for positive input")]
#[test_case(-2, 2 ; "returns opposite number for non-positive input")]
#[test_case( 0, 0 ; "returns 0 for 0")]
fn abs_tests(x: i8, expected: i8){
   let actual = if x > 0 { x } else { -x };

   assert_eq!(expected, actual);
}

Attributes and expectation may be any expresion unless they contain =>, e.g.

#[test_case(None,        None    => 0 ; "treats none as 0")]
#[test_case(Some(2),     Some(3) => 5)]
#[test_case(Some(2 + 3), Some(4) => 2 + 3 + 4)]
fn fancy_addition(x: Option<i8>, y: Option<i8>) -> i8 {
    x.unwrap_or(0) + y.unwrap_or(0)
}

Note: in fact, => is not prohibited, but the parser will always treat last => sign as beginning of expectation definition.

Test case names are optional. They are set using ; followed by string literal at the end of macro attributes.

Example generated code:

mod fancy_addition {
    #[allow(unused_imports)]
    use super::*;

    fn fancy_addition(x: Option<i8>, y: Option<i8>) -> i8 {
        x.unwrap_or(0) + y.unwrap_or(0)
    }

    #[test]
    fn treats_none_as_0() {
        let expected = 0;
        let actual = fancy_addition(None, None);

        assert_eq!(expected, actual);
    }

    #[test]
    fn some_2_some_3() {
        let expected = 5;
        let actual = fancy_addition(Some(2), Some(3));

        assert_eq!(expected, actual);
    }

    #[test]
    fn some_2_3_some_4() {
        let expected = 2 + 3 + 4;
        let actual = fancy_addition(Some(2 + 3), Some(4));

        assert_eq!(expected, actual);
    }
}

Inconclusive (ignored) test cases (since 0.2.0)

If test case name (passed using ; syntax described above) contains a word "inconclusive", generated test will be marked with #[ignore].

Keyword inconclusive (since 1.0.0)

If test expectation is preceded by keyword inconclusive the test will be ignored as if it's description would contain word inconclusive

#[test_case("42")]
#[test_case("XX" ; "inconclusive - parsing letters temporarily doesn't work, but it's ok")]
#[test_case("na" => inconclusive ())]
fn parses_input(input: &str) {
    // ...
}

Generated code:

mod parses_input {
    // ...

    #[test]
    pub fn _42() {
        // ...
    }

    #[test]
    #[ignore]
    pub fn inconclusive_parsing_letters_temporarily_doesn_t_work_but_it_s_ok() {
        // ...
    }

Pattern matched test cases (since 1.0.0)

If test expectation is preceded by matches keyword, the result will be tested whether it fits within provided pattern.

#[test_case("foo", "bar" => matches ("foo", _) ; "first element of zipped tuple is correct")]
#[test_case("foo", "bar" => matches (_, "bar") ; "second element of zipped tuple is correct")]
fn zip_test<'a>(left: &'a str, right: &'a str) -> (&'a str, &'a str) {
    (left, right)
}

Panicking test cases (since 1.0.0)

If test case expectation is preceded by panics keyword and the expectation itself is &str or expresion that evaluates to &str then test case will be expected to panic during execution.


#[test_case("foo" => panics "invalid input")]
#[test_case("bar")]
fn test_panicking(input: &str) {
    if input == "foo" {
        panic!("invalid input")
    }
}
