NAME ^

Test::Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable - utilities to aid in testing of Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable modules

VERSION ^

version 0.98

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Test::More;
  use Test::Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable;

  my $bot = Test::Bot::BasicBot->new();
  $bot->load('MyModule');

  is ( $bot->tell_direct('foo'),   'bar');
  is ( $bot->tell_indirect('foo'), 'bar');
  is ( $bot->tell_private('foo'),  'bar');

DESCRIPTION ^

Test::Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable was written to provide a minimalistic testing bot in order to write cleaner unit tests for Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable modules.

SUBROUTINES/METHODS ^

new

Creates a new Test::Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable object, which is basically just a subclass of Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable with a few special methods. The default nickname is 'test_bot' and it contains a in-memory store instead of sqlite. It takes the same arguments as Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable.

INSTANCE METHODS ^

tell_direct

Sends the provided string to the bot like it was send directly to the bot in a public channel. The channel is called '#test' and the sending user 'test_user'.

  test_user@#test> test_bot: foo

tell_indirect

Sends the provided string to the bot like it was send to a public channel without addressing. The channel is called '#test' and the sending user 'test_user'.

  test_user@#test> foo

tell_private

Sends the provided string to the bot like it was send in a private channel. The sending user 'test_user'.

  test_user@test_bot> foo

tell

This is the working horse of Test::Bot::BasicBot::Pluggable. It basically builds a message hash as argument to the bots said() function. You should never have to call it directly.

connect

Dispatch the connected event to all loaded modules without actually connecting to anything.

DESTROY

The special subrouting is explicitly overriden with an empty subroutine as otherwise AUTOLOAD in Bot::BasicBot will be called for it.

BUGS AND LIMITATIONS ^

There are no methods to test join, part and emote.
