Notes from creating Powershell scripts with Pester Unit testing and deploying via Octopus deploy
“Invoke-Pester” will run the pester test files. The test files need to be named something.tests.ps1 to be discovered by the Pester test runner.
I’ve blogged about web scraping before mainly with Raspberry Pi and Python (utilising BeautifulSoup). Finding a free weekend I decided to revisit scraping and looked at Instagram.
I have a loop in production code that has evolved into processing batches of records. I need to modify an existing unit test to accommodate mocking the same method call each time through the loop returning different results on each loop (as it would in production).
I was working with a customer’s code base recently and I noticed a separate Unit test project was referencing an internal class in a different assembly. Initially, I expected a code smell and perhaps some kind of wrapper that was exposing an internal class some how. After doing a bit of digging and examining dependencies further with Resharper I drew a blank. How was this possible?
