Build Status

RxNimble

Nimble extensions that make unit testing with RxSwift easier 🎉

Why

RxSwift includes a really nifty little library called RxBlocking which provides convenience functions for peeking in on Observable instances. Check is a blocking call, hence the name.

But writing code to check an Observable's value is sooooo tedious:

let result = try! observable.toBlocking().first()
expect(result) == 42

With RxNimble, we've added Nimble extension for Observables, so the code above can be rewritten as:

expect(observable).first == 42

Nice.


If on the other hand you'd rather use RxTest instead of RxBlocking, you can do it by specifying RxNimble's RxTest subspec. With RxTest you can have more powerful tests, checking a stream as a whole instead of being limited to first, last and array (while the last 2 implicitly require the stream to have completed).

That means RxTest allows you to verify the occurrence of multiple next, error and completed events at specific virtual times:

expect(subject).events(scheduler: scheduler, disposeBag: disposeBag)
    .to(equal([
        Recorded.next(5, "Hello"),
        Recorded.next(10, "World"),
        Recorded.completed(100)
        ]))

You may also verify specific error types:

expect(imageSubject).events(scheduler: scheduler, disposeBag: disposeBag)
    .to(equal([
        Recorded.error(5, ImageError.invalidImage)
        ]))

Installation

CocoaPods

Add to the tests target in your Podfile:

pod 'RxNimble' # same as RxNimble/RxBlocking

or

pod 'RxNimble/RxTest' # installs RxTest instead of RxBlocking

or even

pod 'RxNimble', subspecs: ['RxBlocking', 'RxTest'] # installs both dependencies

And pod install and that's it!

Carthage

Add to your Cartfile.private:

github 'RxSwiftCommunity/RxNimble'

Run carthage update --cache-builds then drag & drop from the Carthage/Builds folder into your project either or both of:

  • RxNimbleRxBlocking.framework and RxBlocking.framework
  • RxNimbleRxTest.framework and RxTest.framework

Known Issues

Very very very rarely the Swift compiler gets confused about the different types and you need to use the original RxBlocking code.
