A DSL Testing Framework for nicer, (beautiful!) readable BDD tests
now with 0 calorie syntactic sugar!
Konira is a tool that allows you to write minimalistic descriptions for testing scenarios and unit tests.
It is flexible enough to accommodate Behavioral Driven Development as well as traditional Unit Testing.
As a testing tool, it takes testing itself seriously and is tested and verified to work on
Konira’s own test suite consists of about 200 tests that run in about 0.120s
It provides a test runner, a dsl and you can optionally use py.test to run these tests (using the pytest-konira plugin installed separately).
If you develop with Vim editor, there is also a plugin that will enable syntax highlighting and running tests from within Vim (see: https://github.com/alfredodeza/konira.vim)
describe "a very simple test case for my_module": it "has a foo property that is True": assert my_module.foo
I hear you. It is a DSL. All tests need to specify the konira encoding at the top and they can be executed with the included command line tool.
$ konira a very simple test case for my_module It has a foo property that is True All specs passed in 0.000 secs.

Konira is one of the names of an ancient Inca God. Konira Wirakocha diguised as a traveler in rags. A trickster, a prankster. No one knew who he was, and the people he passed called him names. Yet as he walked, he created. With a word he made the fields and terraced hillsides. Dropping a reed blossom, he made water flow.
This is a DSL, it looks like Python - it mostly is, but it packs simplicity and makes testing look good and easy.
