# testthat

Testing your code is normally painful and boring. `testthat` tries to make testing as fun as possible, so that you get a visceral satisfaction from writing tests. Testing should be fun, not a drag, so you do it all the time. To make that happen, `testthat`:

`testthat` draws inspiration from the xUnit family of testing packages, as well from many of the innovative ruby testing libraries, like [rspec](http://rspec.info/),

[testy](http://github.com/ahoward/testy),
[bacon](http://github.com/chneukirchen/bacon) and
[cucumber](http://wiki.github.com/aslakhellesoy/cucumber/). I have
used what I think works for R, and abandoned what doesn't, creating a testing environment that is philosophically centred in R.

Changes in version 0.3
