timecop.cr alternatives and similar shards

Based on the "Testing" category

Do you think we are missing an alternative of timecop.cr or a related project?

Add another 'Testing' Shard

README

timecop.cr

Build Status

Mock with Time.now with the power of time travel, time freeze and time scale.

Inspired by timecop ruby gem

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

development_dependencies:
  timecop:
    github: waterlink/timecop.cr

Already implemented and usable

  • Timecop.freeze (normal and block forms)
  • Timecop.reset

TODO

  • [x] Timecop.freeze
  • [x] Timecop.reset
  • [ ] Timecop.travel
  • [ ] Timecop.scale
  • [ ] Support nested block forms of scale, freeze and travel

Usage

require "timecop"

Time travel

NOTE: Not implemented yet

Timecop.travel(2.days.ago)
# Do some stuff 2 days ago

Timecop.travel(4.days.from_now)
# Do some stuff 2 days from now (2 days ago + 4 days from now = -2 + 4 = +2)

Block form:

# Normal time here

Timecop.travel(2.days.ago) do
  # Do some stuff 2 days ago
end

# Again back to normal time

Time freeze

Timecop.freeze(2.days.ago)
# Do some stuff exactly 2 days ago

Block form:

Timecop.freeze(2.days.ago) do
  # Time.now is always 2 days ago in this block
end

Difference between time travel and time freeze

Timecop.freeze is used to statically mock the concept of now. As your program executes, Time.now will always return the same value - value you provided as an argument to Timecop.freeze.

On the other hand Timecop.travel is dynamically mocks Time.now, ie: as your program executes, Time.now will change accordingly taking into account offset created by Timecop.travel.

Timecop.travel and Timecop.freeze both support nested calls. NOTE: Not implemented yet

Time scale

NOTE: Not implemented yet

Timecop.scale(1000)
# Now time goes 1000 times faster

Timecop.scale(0.001)
# Now time goes as normal

Timecop.scale(0.001)
# Now time goes 1000 times slower

Block form:

Timecop.scale(2.5) do
  # here time goes 2.5 times faster
end

Resetting normal time flow

Timecop.reset
