I am happy to announce the release of Specl 3,
Behaviour Driven Development for Lua.
This release is a significant upgrade to release 2:
- lyaml was spun out to a separate luarock, now required.
- Initial support for pending examples, either using the new
`pending ()` function, or having an example description with an
- pending and failed expectations are now summarized in the footer
of default (progress) and report formatters.
- Formatters display in color on supported TERM types, ansicolors
is now required.
- Color can be disabled with `--color=no` command line option.
- Custom formatters are now supported, using the new command line
- `-v` now behaves differently, and simply requests more verbose
output from the selected formatter, use `-freport` to select the
report formatter like `-v` did in release 2 and earlier.
- The custom formatters API is documented in README.md.
- A new TAP formatter was contributed by François Perrad.
- Error message from invalid Lua in example definitions are now
- Runner environments are more robust, see README.md for details.
- Specl no longer uses lua-stdlib (to break a cyclic dependency
when using specl to run lua-stdlib spec-files).
- Many more specifications for Specl were added, now that specl is
featureful enough to support BDD development of itself.
Install it as luarock specl-3 (see http://luarocks.org/repositories/rocks )
