    Ginkgo: a testing framework based on the concept of ‌"Behavior Driven Development" (BDD)
  • We moved our Cloud operations to a Kubernetes Operator

    We were also able to leverage Ginkgo's parallel testing runtime to run our integration tests on multiple concurrent processes. This provided multiple benefits: we could run our entire integration test suite in under 10 minutes and also reuse the same suite to load test the operator in a production-like environment. Using these tests, we were able to identify hot spots in the code that needed further optimization and experimented with ways to save API calls to ease the load on our own Kubernetes API server while also staying under various AWS rate limits. It was only after running these tests over and over again that I felt confident enough to deploy the operator to our dev and prod clusters.

  • Testing frameworks, which to use?

    https://onsi.github.io/ginkgo/ offers a simple way to create tables with different scenarios useful to generate different test cases based on a file like a yml without to need to develop useless code. Maybe at start seems to be a little verbose but depends how you design the test case.

    If you like BDD and more expressive tests, go get ginkgo. It is a pain in the back get the hang of its R-spec like syntax, but if you're good at it and you like it, it is very expressive and readable. It has its own matcher (assertions library), gomega, but if you don't like it, you can still use testify instead.
  • Testza - A modern test framework with pretty output
    2 projects | /r/golang | 25 Aug 2021
    What are people’s thoughts on testing frameworks? I’ve heard that most devs only use the testing package in the standard library and the testify package for assertions— I assume this is because Go is meant to be lightweight and scalable, and adding external dependencies basically goes against that. But I’ve also seen devs use packages like ginkgo to make tests more structured and readable. What do you guys think?

    If you write your tests with Ginkgo [0] its CLI can do this for you. It also has nice facilities to quickly disable a test or portion of a test by pretending an X to the test function name, or to focus a test (only run that test) by prepending an F. It’s pretty nice.

    The BDD testing framework Ginko [1] has some "weird" / unidiomatic patterns, yet it is very popular
