  • factory_bot

    A library for setting up Ruby objects as test data.

    Project mention: Efate Test Generator Series: Extending the library | | 2022-09-05

    Efate is actually the second test fixture library I've written and there were several lessons I learned after using the first iteration for several years myself. The first version was influenced a great deal by factor_girl (called factory_bot now), with a heavy dependency on strings to define and create the fixtures. It also wasn't very modular. You couldn't just import a specific fixture, you had to bring in the whole library. And it wasn't very extensible, if you needed to define custom behavior for how a field should be created, it wasn't very pretty.
