Testing

INFO

We know the testing guides aren't very detailed, and some testing helpers are needed. So please send your feedback here.

Testing is an essential aspect of your app. Most Avo DSLs are Ruby classes, so regular testing methods should apply.

Testing helpers

We prepared a few testing helpers for you to use in your apps. They will help with opening/closing datepickers, choosing the date, saving the records, add/remove tags, and also select a lot of elements throughout the UI.

You can find them all here,

Testing Actions

Given this Avo::Actions::ReleaseFish, this is the spec that tests it.

ruby
class Avo::Actions::ReleaseFish < Avo::BaseAction
  self.name = "Release fish"
  self.message = "Are you sure you want to release this fish?"

  def fields
    field :message, as: :textarea, help: "Tell the fish something before releasing."
  end

  def handle(**args)
    args[:records].each do |record|
      record.release
    end

    succeed "#{args[:records].count} fish released with message '#{args[:fields][:message]}'."
  end
end
ruby
require 'rails_helper'

RSpec.feature ReleaseFish, type: :feature do
  let(:fish) { create :fish }
  let(:current_user) { create :user }
  let(:resource) { Avo::Resources::User.new.hydrate model: fish }

  it "tests the dummy action" do
    args = {
      fields: {
        message: "Bye fishy!"
      },
      current_user: current_user,
      resource: resource,
      models: [fish]
    }

    action = described_class.new(model: fish, resource: resource, user: current_user, view: :edit)

    expect(action).to receive(:succeed).with "1 fish released with message 'Bye fishy!'."
    expect(fish).to receive(:release)

    action.handle **args
  end
end
