monad-mock alternatives and similar packages
Based on the "Testing" category
Do you think we are missing an alternative of monad-mock or a related project?
monad-mock is a Haskell package that provides a monad transformer to help create “mocks” of
mtl-style typeclasses, intended for use in unit tests. A mock can be executed by providing a sequence of expected monadic calls and their results, and the mock will verify that the computation conforms to the expectation.
For example, imagine a
MonadFileSystem typeclass, which describes a class of
monads that may perform filesystem operations:
class Monad m => MonadFileSystem m where readFile :: FilePath -> m String writeFile :: FilePath -> String -> m ()
MockT, it’s possible to test computations that use
in a completely pure way:
copyFile :: MonadFileSystem m => FilePath -> FilePath -> m () copyFile a b = do x <- readFile a writeFile b x makeMock "FileSystemAction" [ts| MonadFileSystem |] spec = describe "copyFile" $ it "reads a file and writes its contents to another file" $ evaluate $ copyFile "foo.txt" "bar.txt" & runMock [ ReadFile "foo.txt" :-> "contents" , WriteFile "bar.txt" "contents" :-> () ]
