Formatting Testing

Formatting tests are data-driven instead of being specified explicitly. This document explains how to add a new formatting test.

Adding a formatting test

  1. Create a new file with the extension .sdsdev in the tests/resources/formatting directory or any subdirectory. Give the file a descriptive name, since the file name becomes part of the test name.

    Skipping a test

    If you want to skip a test, add the prefix skip- to the file name.

  2. Add the original unformatted Safe-DS code to the top of the file. The code must be syntactically valid.

  3. Add the following separator to the file:
    // -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4. Add the expected formatted Safe-DS code to the file below the separator.
  5. Run the tests. The test runner will automatically pick up the new test.
