Build your own test libraries

Create your test library

This code goes in the t/lib/test directory of your project.

package test::Something;

use Test2::API;
use Exporter::Shiny qw/test_something/;

sub test_something {
    my ($something, $name) = @_;

    my $ctx = Test2::API::context();

    my ($success, $error) = check($something);
    if ($success) {
        $ctx->pass($name);
    }
    else {
        $ctx->fail($name);
        $ctx->diag($error);
    }

    $ctx->release;
    return;
}

sub check { ... }

1;

The context object represents the context in which a test takes place (File and Line Number), and provides a quick way to generate events from that context. For more details see Test2::API::Context.

Use your test library

This code goes in t/foo.t:

use Test2::V0;
use Test::Lib; # Add t/lib to @INC
use test::Something qw/test_something/;

test_something(...);

done_testing();
