    Text and file processing. Everything from parsing log files and generating reports, to watching folders with the Guard library and doing things with the files.

    It seems like where you are, devs are pushing code that fails in the CI/CD pipeline, which means, if your test suite isn't flakey, they aren't running tests locally. I had this problem too. I work on a rails monorepo, so I use the guard gem to automatically run certain tests when certain files are changed. There should be an analagous tool in whatever language/framework env(s) you're working in.

    Guard is a gem I have some prior experience with; it can be configured so that when a change is made to a file (for example: models/user.rb) it will autorun the associated test file (in this example: user_test.rb). As you can imagine, this significantly cuts down on the time until seeing either red or green tests which is super helpful for TDD and a necessary first part of TCR.

    Now, consider this a mea culpa, as I know there are many ways this could go wrong. The guard documentation was also kind enough to warn me as such. This is, for better or for worse, my first attempt at building out a way to TCR in Rails. I’m excited to be able to follow up as I spend more time with my monstrous guardfile and this workflow so I can let you know how it goes.

    Two key pieces of guard documentation, one on creating an inline guard and the other on hooks and callbacks. All of the docs were very helpful though!
