cl-unit-test package is a simple unit testing utility. cl-unit-test is released under MIT license, see LICENSE file for details.
cl-unit-test can be used in many ways in development process. Each assert and test can be evaluated individually or whole test file can be loaded to run all tests in a file. Since 0.3 cl-unit-test can be easily integrated to asdf, too.
cl-unit-test concepts are asserts, tests and test files. Asserts are the simpliest forms of unit tests. Different kind of asserts exists for different purposes. In fact only one would be feasible but to make assert writing easier different asserts are provided for testing true/false values and equality (in its all lisp forms).
A test is thought as set of asserts to be all checked for one test.
A test file may contain assert(s) or test(s) but usually file contains set of named tests.
Tests can be run in several ways. Each assert can be evaluated, each def-test can be evaluated, test file containing assertions or def-tests can be loaded, or file(s) can be loaded using test-runner.
The test output is controlled by unit-test:*show-details* parameter and unit test formatter. Currently three different kind of formatters are provided and more can be implemented if needed. A simple unit test formatter outputs test results to stream, list formatter formats lists to stream and silent formatter does not output anything.
The file example.lisp contains sample unit test definition. Here is a sample run with Emacs+Slime+SBCL.

Using with ASDF
Append a new defsystem after your existing defsystem and make new system to depend on your system. New systems components is specified by unit-test:unit-test-files component. unit-test-files takes a file pattern parameter and all matching files are loaded as tests.
Here is an simple example. Assuming the system is called 'sample' and test files are located under 'test' directory with common '-test.lisp' file postfix.
(in-package :common-lisp-user) (require 'unit-test) (defpackage sample-system (:use :asdf :common-lisp)) (in-package :sample-system) (defsystem sample :name "A sample system definition" :description "This is a sample." :author "Sami Makinen <firstname.lastname@example.org>" :version "0.1" :components ((:file "package") (:file "main" :depends-on ("package")))) (defsystem sample-tests :name "Tests for sample" :description "This is a sample asdf system for integrated tests." :author "Sami Makinen <email@example.com>" :version "0.1" :components ((unit-test:unit-test-files "test/*-test.lisp")) :depends-on (:sample))
Now evaluating (asdf:operate 'asdf:load-op 'sample-tests) would first load sample system and then load tests associated with it.
with-mock-function(s) macro is an experimental utility to override existing defuns with a mock function within the macro scope.
