Test::Roo allows you to compose Test::More tests from roles. It is inspired
by the excellent Test::Routine module, but uses Moo instead of Moose. This
gives most of the benefits without the need for Moose as a test dependency.
Test files are Moo classes. You can define any needed test fixtures as Moo
attributes. You define tests as method modifiers -- similar in concept to
"subtest" in Test::More, but your test method will be passed the test object
for access to fixture attributes. You may compose any Moo::Role into your
test to define attributes, require particular methods, or define tests.
This means that you can isolate test *behaviors* into roles which require
certain test *fixtures* in order to run. Your main test file will provide the
fixtures and compose the roles to run. This makes it easy to reuse test
For example, if you are creating tests for Awesome::Module, you could create
the test behaviors as Awesome::Module::Test::Role and distribute it with your
module. If another distribution subclasses Awesome::Module, it can compose
the Awesome::Module::Test::Role behavior for its own tests.
No more copying and pasting tests from a super class! Superclasses define and
share their tests. Subclasses provide their own fixtures and run the tests.
