Dist::Zilla::App::Command::xtest - run xt tests for your dist
Run xt tests for your distribution:
dzil xtest [ --no-author] [ --no-release ] [ --no-automated ] [ --all ]
This runs with AUTHOR_TESTING and RELEASE_TESTING environment variables turned on, so it's like doing this:
export AUTHOR_TESTING=1 export RELEASE_TESTING=1 dzil build rsync -avp My-Project-Version/ .build/ cd .build; perl Makefile.PL make prove -l -r xt
Except for the fact it's built directly in a subdir of .build (like .build/ASDF123).
A build that fails tests will be left behind for analysis, and dzil will exit a non-zero value. If the tests are successful, the build directory will be removed and dzil will exit with status 0.
You can also use 'xt' as an alias for 'xtest':
If you provide one or more filenames on the command line, only those tests will be run (however deeply they are nested).
dzil xtest pod-spell.t
Arguments are turned into regexp patterns, so you can do any sort of partial match you want:
dzil xtest author/ # just the author tests dzil xtest spell # a test with 'spell' in the path
There is no need to add anything to dist.ini -- installation of this module is sufficient to make the command available.
This will run the test suite without setting AUTHOR_TESTING
This will run the test suite without setting RELEASE_TESTING
This will run the test suite with AUTOMATED_TESTING=1
Equivalent to --release --automated --author
