NAME

       Test2::Tools::Spec - RSPEC implementation on top of Test2::Workflow

DESCRIPTION

       This uses Test2::Workflow to implement an RSPEC variant. This variant supports isolation
       and/or concurrency via forking or threads.

SYNOPSIS

           use Test2::Bundle::Extended;
           use Test2::Tools::Spec;

           describe foo => sub {
               before_all  once => sub { ... };
               before_each many => sub { ... };

               after_all  once => sub { ... };
               after_each many => sub { ... };

               case condition_a => sub { ... };
               case condition_b => sub { ... };

               tests foo => sub { ... };
               tests bar => sub { ... };
           };

           done_testing;

EXPORTS

       All of these use the same argument pattern. The first argument must always be a name for
       the block. The last argument must always be a code reference.  Optionally a configuration
       hash can be inserted between the name and the code reference.

           FUNCTION "name" => sub { ... };

           FUNCTION "name" => {...}, sub { ... };

       NAME
           The first argument to a Test2::Tools::Spec function MUST be a name. The name does not
           need to be unique.

       PARAMS
           This argument is optional. If present this should be a hashref.

           Here are the valid keys for the hashref:

           flat => $bool
                   If this is set to true then the block will not render as a subtest, instead
                   the events will be inline with the parent subtest (or main test).

           async => $bool
                   Set this to true to mark a block as being capable of running concurrently with
                   other test blocks. This does not mean the block WILL be run concurrently, just
                   that it can be.

           iso => $bool
                   Set this to true if the block MUST be run in isolation. If this is true then
                   the block will run in its own forked process.

                   These tests will be skipped on any platform that does not have true forking,
                   or working/enabled threads.

                   Threads will ONLY be used if the T2_WORKFLOW_USE_THREADS env var is set.
                   Thread tests are only run if the T2_DO_THREAD_TESTS env var is set.

           todo => $reason
                   Use this to mark an entire block as TODO.

           skip => $reason
                   Use this to prevent a block from running at all.

       CODEREF
           This argument is required. This should be a code reference that will run some
           assertions.

   ESSENTIALS
       tests NAME => sub { ... }
       tests NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       tests($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
       it NAME => sub { ... }
       it NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       it($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           This defines a test block. Test blocks are essentially subtests. All test blocks will
           be run, and are expected to produce events. Test blocks can run multiple times if the
           "case()" function is also used.

           "it()" is an alias to "tests()".

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

       case NAME => sub { ... }
       case NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       case($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           This lets you specify multiple conditions in which the test blocks should be run.
           Every test block within the same group ("describe") will be run once per case.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks, but nested describe blocks will be
           executed once per case.

       before_each NAME => sub { ... }
       before_each NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       before_each($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Specify a codeblock that should be run multiple times, once before each "tests()"
           block is run. These will run AFTER "case()" blocks but before "tests()" blocks.

           These ARE inherited by nested describe blocks.

       before_case NAME => sub { ... }
       before_case NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       before_case($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Same as "before_each()", except these blocks run BEFORE "case()" blocks.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

       before_all NAME => sub { ... }
       before_all NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       before_all($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Specify a codeblock that should be run once, before all the test blocks run.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

       around_each NAME => sub { ... }
       around_each NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       around_each($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Specify a codeblock that should wrap around each test block. These blocks are run
           AFTER case blocks, but before test blocks.

               around_each wrapit => sub {
                   my $cont = shift;

                   local %ENV = ( ... );

                   $cont->();

                   ...
               };

           The first argument to the codeblock will be a callback that MUST be called somewhere
           inside the sub in order for nested items to run.

           These ARE inherited by nested describe blocks.

       around_case NAME => sub { ... }
       around_case NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       around_case($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Same as "around_each" except these run BEFORE case blocks.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

       around_all NAME => sub { ... }
       around_all NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       around_all($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Same as "around_each" except that it only runs once to wrap ALL test blocks.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

       after_each NAME => sub { ... }
       after_each NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       after_each($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Same as "before_each" except it runs right after each test block.

           These ARE inherited by nested describe blocks.

       after_case NAME => sub { ... }
       after_case NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       after_case($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Same as "after_each" except it runs right after the case block, and before the test
           block.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

       after_all NAME => sub { ... }
       after_all NAME => \%params, sub { ... }
       after_all($NAME, \%PARAMS, \&CODE)
           Same as "before_all" except it runs after all test blocks have been run.

           These ARE NOT inherited by nested describe blocks.

   SHORTCUTS
       These are shortcuts. Each of these is the same as "tests()" except some parameters are
       added for you.

       These are NOT exported by default/.

       mini NAME => sub { ... }
           Same as:

               tests NAME => { flat => 1 }, sub { ... }

       iso NAME => sub { ... }
           Same as:

               tests NAME => { iso => 1 }, sub { ... }

       miso NAME => sub { ... }
           Same as:

               tests NAME => { mini => 1, iso => 1 }, sub { ... }

       async NAME => sub { ... }
           Same as:

               tests NAME => { async => 1 }, sub { ... }

           Note: This conflicts with the "async()" exported from threads. Don't import both.

       masync NAME => sub { ... }
           Same as:

               tests NAME => { minit => 1, async => 1 }, sub { ... }

   CUSTOM ATTRIBUTE DEFAULTS
       Sometimes you want to apply default attributes to all "tests()" or "case()" blocks. This
       can be done, and is lexical to your describe or package root!

           use Test2::Bundle::Extended;
           use Test2::Tools::Spec ':ALL';

           # All 'tests' blocks after this declaration will have C<<iso => 1>> by default
           spec_defaults tests => (iso => 1);

           tests foo => sub { ... }; # isolated

           tests foo, {iso => 0}, sub { ... }; # Not isolated

           spec_defaults tests => (iso => 0); # Turn it off again

       Defaults are inherited by nested describe blocks. You can also override the defaults for
       the scope of the describe:

           spec_defaults tests => (iso => 1);

           describe foo => sub {
               spec_defaults tests => (async => 1); # Scoped to this describe and any child describes

               tests bar => sub { ... }; # both iso and async
           };

           tests baz => sub { ... }; # Just iso, no async.

       You can apply defaults to any type of blocks:

           spec_defaults case => (iso => 1); # All cases are 'iso';

       Defaults are not inherited when a builder's return is captured.

           spec_defaults tests => (iso => 1);

           # Note we are not calling this in void context, that is the key here.
           my $d = describe foo => {
               tests bar => sub { ... }; # Not iso
           };

EXECUTION ORDER

       As each function is encountered it executes, just like any other function. The
       "describe()" function will immediately execute the codeblock it is given. All other
       functions will stash their codeblocks to be run later. When "done_testing()" is run the
       workflow will be compiled, at which point all other blocks will run.

       Here is an overview of the order in which blocks get called once compiled (at
       "done_testing()").

           before_all
               for-each-case {
                   before_case
                       case
                   after_case

                   # AND/OR nested describes
                   before_each
                       tests
                   after_each
               }
           after_all
