This cookbook utilizes the minitest-chef-handler project to facilitate
cookbook testing. By default, minitest-handler will collect all the
tests in your cookbook_path and run them.

Note: Version 0.1.8 deprecated use of
files/default/tests/minitest/*_test.rb and the location of support
files. Test files should now be located in
Note: Version 0.1.0 added a change that breaks backward compatibility. The minitest-handler now only loads<br/>
test files named "<recipe-name>_test.rb" rather than all test files in the path
If you have any helper libraries, they should match
node[:minitest][:gem_version]- The version of the minitest gem to install and use.
- Default: 3.0.1
node[:minitest][:chef_handler_gem_version]- The version of the minitest-chef-handler gem to install and use.
- Default: 1.0.1
node[:minitest][:path]- Location to store and find test files.
node[:minitest][:recipes]- The names of all recipes included during the chef run, whether by insertion to the run_list, inclusion through a role, or added with
include_recipe. If you only want tests for select recipes to run, override this value with the names of the recipes that you want tested.
- Default: 
node[:minitest][:filter]- Filter test names on a pattern (regex)
/apache2/could be used to only run tests for recipes with starting with apache2
node[:minitest][:seed]- Set random seed
node[:minitest][:ci_reports]- Path to write out the result of each test in a JUnit-compatible XML file, parseable by many CI platforms
node[:minitest][:tests]- Test files to run.
- Default to
- Default to
node[:minitest][:verbose]- Display verbose output
- Default: true
recipe[minitest-handler]somewhere on your run_list, preferably last
- Place tests in
files/default/test/with the name your-recipe-name_test.rb (default recipe is named default_test.rb)
- Put any helper functions you have in
files/default/test/spec_helper.rbbut minitest-handler will ensure that you have access to any file that matches the glob

Testing this cookbook
All test are currently written using BATS,
which is essentially bash. Using BATS was done so that minitest-handler nor
minitest-chef-handler were used to test itself. For more examples of bats than
are in this cookbook, see the chef-rvm,
NOTE A known limitation of using BATS is that the cookbook is not currently
tested on Windows machines. See https://github.com/btm/minitest-handler-cookbook/issues/45
for more of the background on this.
