Attributes

Here are informations about the built in attributes

Summary

About

You can use User Defined Attributes to add more informations to your test result. Right now you can only modify the test labels but in the future, more functionality will be added. Besides the provided attributes, any string attribute, will be used as test name.

Flaky

In a real life not all of your tests are stable and always green or always red. A test might start to “blink” i.e. it fails from time-to-time without any obvious reason. You could disable such a test, that is a trivial solution. However what if you do not want to do that? Say you would like to get more details on possible reasons or the test is so critical that even being flaky it provides helpful information? You have an option to mark such tests in a special way, so resulting report will clearly show them as unstable:

@Flaky
unittest {
    ...
}

Issue

To link a test to an issue, you can use @Issue annotation. Simply specify the issue key as shown below:

@Issue("https://github.com/gedaiu/trial/issues/2")
unittest {
    ...
}

Behaviours Mapping

In some development approaches tests are classified by stories and features. If you’re using this then you can annotate your test with @Story and @Feature annotations:

@Feature("My awesome feature")
@Story("The story name")
unittest {
    ...
}

Hacking

The attributes add custom Label structs to the Label[] labels; property inside test result. If you want to implement a custom attribute, you have to create a struct with the Label[] labels() method. You can make it static Label[] labels() if you don’t want to declare the attribute using paranthesis.
