rgf is a currently experimental attempt at an RSpec-esque BDD testing framework for Python.
Basically we're aiming for syntax along these lines:
from rgf import describe, it
with describe("That Thing"):
# test code here
x_spec.py files go in a directory structure under, by convention, spec/ in the root of your project and are run using:
The specifics of the syntax are currently wrong, being borrowed directly from RSpec. Suggestions warmly received.
(Current front-runners are subject and context in place of describe, keeping it for the spec decorator.)
Because the spec functions are just functions, not methods, and are hoovered up by the @it decorator they're effectively anonymous and can all have the same name for ease of thinking:
with subject('This Class'):
@it('can calculate X')
@it('can account for Y')
The aim is for something pythonic, with nested context and good spec names being the primary focus: minimum magic, minimum fuss.
