    Project mention: Start test names with “should” (2020) | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-02-12

    You obviously are not familiar with the third circle of golang continuous integration hell that is ginkgo+gomega:


    It’s actually worse than that example suggests. Stuff like Expect(“type safety”).ShouldBe(GreaterThan(13)) throws runtime errors.

    The semantics of parallel test runs weren’t defined anywhere the last time I checked.

    Anyway, you’ll be thinking back fondly to the days of TestShouldReplaceChildrenWhenUpdatingInstance because now you need to write nested function calls like:

    Context(“instances”, func …)

    Describe(“that are being updated”, …)

    Expect(“should replace children”, …)

    And to invoke that from the command line, you need to write a regex against whatever undocumented and unprinted string it internally concatenates together to uniquely describe the test.

    Also, they dump color codes to stdout without checking that they are writing to a terminal, so there will be line noise all over whatever automated test logs you produce, or if you pipe stdout to a file.
