    Functions

    func And

      And succeeds only if all of the given matchers succeed. The matchers are tried in order, and will fail-fast if one doesn't succeed.

      Expect("hi").To(And(HaveLen(2), Equal("hi"))
      

      And(), Or(), Not() and WithTransform() allow matchers to be composed into complex expressions.

      func BeADirectory

      func BeADirectory() types.GomegaMatcher

        BeADirectory succeeds if a file exists and is a directory. Actual must be a string representing the abs path to the file being checked.

        func BeARegularFile

        func BeARegularFile() types.GomegaMatcher

          BeARegularFile succeeds if a file exists and is a regular file. Actual must be a string representing the abs path to the file being checked.

          func BeAnExistingFile

          func BeAnExistingFile() types.GomegaMatcher

            BeAnExistingFile succeeds if a file exists. Actual must be a string representing the abs path to the file being checked.

            func BeAssignableToTypeOf

            func BeAssignableToTypeOf(expected interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

              BeAssignableToTypeOf succeeds if actual is assignable to the type of expected. It will return an error when one of the values is nil.

              Expect(0).Should(BeAssignableToTypeOf(0))         // Same values
              Expect(5).Should(BeAssignableToTypeOf(-1))        // different values same type
              Expect("foo").Should(BeAssignableToTypeOf("bar")) // different values same type
              Expect(struct{ Foo string }{}).Should(BeAssignableToTypeOf(struct{ Foo string }{}))
              

              func BeClosed

              func BeClosed() types.GomegaMatcher

                BeClosed succeeds if actual is a closed channel. It is an error to pass a non-channel to BeClosed, it is also an error to pass nil

                In order to check whether or not the channel is closed, Gomega must try to read from the channel (even in the `ShouldNot(BeClosed())` case). You should keep this in mind if you wish to make subsequent assertions about values coming down the channel.

                Also, if you are testing that a *buffered* channel is closed you must first read all values out of the channel before asserting that it is closed (it is not possible to detect that a buffered-channel has been closed until all its buffered values are read).

                Finally, as a corollary: it is an error to check whether or not a send-only channel is closed.

                func BeEmpty

                func BeEmpty() types.GomegaMatcher

                  BeEmpty succeeds if actual is empty. Actual must be of type string, array, map, chan, or slice.

                  func BeEquivalentTo

                  func BeEquivalentTo(expected interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                    BeEquivalentTo is more lax than Equal, allowing equality between different types. This is done by converting actual to have the type of expected before attempting equality with reflect.DeepEqual. It is an error for actual and expected to be nil. Use BeNil() instead.

                    func BeFalse

                    func BeFalse() types.GomegaMatcher

                      BeFalse succeeds if actual is false

                      func BeIdenticalTo

                      func BeIdenticalTo(expected interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                        BeIdenticalTo uses the == operator to compare actual with expected. BeIdenticalTo is strict about types when performing comparisons. It is an error for both actual and expected to be nil. Use BeNil() instead.

                        func BeNil

                        func BeNil() types.GomegaMatcher

                          BeNil succeeds if actual is nil

                          func BeNumerically

                          func BeNumerically(comparator string, compareTo ...interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                            BeNumerically performs numerical assertions in a type-agnostic way. Actual and expected should be numbers, though the specific type of number is irrelevant (float32, float64, uint8, etc...).

                            There are six, self-explanatory, supported comparators:

                            Expect(1.0).Should(BeNumerically("==", 1))
                            Expect(1.0).Should(BeNumerically("~", 0.999, 0.01))
                            Expect(1.0).Should(BeNumerically(">", 0.9))
                            Expect(1.0).Should(BeNumerically(">=", 1.0))
                            Expect(1.0).Should(BeNumerically("<", 3))
                            Expect(1.0).Should(BeNumerically("<=", 1.0))
                            

                            func BeSent

                            func BeSent(arg interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                              BeSent succeeds if a value can be sent to actual. Actual must be a channel (and cannot be a receive-only channel) that can sent the type of the value passed into BeSent -- anything else is an error. In addition, actual must not be closed.

                              BeSent never blocks:

                              - If the channel `c` is not ready to receive then Expect(c).Should(BeSent("foo")) will fail immediately - If the channel `c` is eventually ready to receive then Eventually(c).Should(BeSent("foo")) will succeed.. presuming the channel becomes ready to receive before Eventually's timeout - If the channel `c` is closed then Expect(c).Should(BeSent("foo")) and Ω(c).ShouldNot(BeSent("foo")) will both fail immediately

                              Of course, the value is actually sent to the channel. The point of `BeSent` is less to make an assertion about the availability of the channel (which is typically an implementation detail that your test should not be concerned with). Rather, the point of `BeSent` is to make it possible to easily and expressively write tests that can timeout on blocked channel sends.

                              func BeTemporally

                              func BeTemporally(comparator string, compareTo time.Time, threshold ...time.Duration) types.GomegaMatcher

                                BeTemporally compares time.Time's like BeNumerically Actual and expected must be time.Time. The comparators are the same as for BeNumerically

                                Expect(time.Now()).Should(BeTemporally(">", time.Time{}))
                                Expect(time.Now()).Should(BeTemporally("~", time.Now(), time.Second))
                                

                                func BeTrue

                                func BeTrue() types.GomegaMatcher

                                  BeTrue succeeds if actual is true

                                  func BeZero

                                  func BeZero() types.GomegaMatcher

                                    BeZero succeeds if actual is the zero value for its type or if actual is nil.

                                    func ConsistOf

                                    func ConsistOf(elements ...interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                      ConsistOf succeeds if actual contains precisely the elements passed into the matcher. The ordering of the elements does not matter. By default ConsistOf() uses Equal() to match the elements, however custom matchers can be passed in instead. Here are some examples:

                                      Expect([]string{"Foo", "FooBar"}).Should(ConsistOf("FooBar", "Foo"))
                                      Expect([]string{"Foo", "FooBar"}).Should(ConsistOf(ContainSubstring("Bar"), "Foo"))
                                      Expect([]string{"Foo", "FooBar"}).Should(ConsistOf(ContainSubstring("Foo"), ContainSubstring("Foo")))
                                      

                                      Actual must be an array, slice or map. For maps, ConsistOf matches against the map's values.

                                      You typically pass variadic arguments to ConsistOf (as in the examples above). However, if you need to pass in a slice you can provided that it is the only element passed in to ConsistOf:

                                      Expect([]string{"Foo", "FooBar"}).Should(ConsistOf([]string{"FooBar", "Foo"}))
                                      

                                      Note that Go's type system does not allow you to write this as ConsistOf([]string{"FooBar", "Foo"}...) as []string and []interface{} are different types - hence the need for this special rule.

                                      func ContainElement

                                      func ContainElement(element interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                        ContainElement succeeds if actual contains the passed in element. By default ContainElement() uses Equal() to perform the match, however a matcher can be passed in instead:

                                        Expect([]string{"Foo", "FooBar"}).Should(ContainElement(ContainSubstring("Bar")))
                                        

                                        Actual must be an array, slice or map. For maps, ContainElement searches through the map's values.

                                        func ContainSubstring

                                        func ContainSubstring(substr string, args ...interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                          ContainSubstring succeeds if actual is a string or stringer that contains the passed-in substring. Optional arguments can be provided to construct the substring via fmt.Sprintf().

                                          func Equal

                                          func Equal(expected interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                            Equal uses reflect.DeepEqual to compare actual with expected. Equal is strict about types when performing comparisons. It is an error for both actual and expected to be nil. Use BeNil() instead.

                                            func HaveCap

                                            func HaveCap(count int) types.GomegaMatcher

                                              HaveCap succeeds if actual has the passed-in capacity. Actual must be of type array, chan, or slice.

                                              func HaveKey

                                              func HaveKey(key interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                HaveKey succeeds if actual is a map with the passed in key. By default HaveKey uses Equal() to perform the match, however a matcher can be passed in instead:

                                                Expect(map[string]string{"Foo": "Bar", "BazFoo": "Duck"}).Should(HaveKey(MatchRegexp(`.+Foo$`)))
                                                

                                                func HaveKeyWithValue

                                                func HaveKeyWithValue(key interface{}, value interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                  HaveKeyWithValue succeeds if actual is a map with the passed in key and value. By default HaveKeyWithValue uses Equal() to perform the match, however a matcher can be passed in instead:

                                                  Expect(map[string]string{"Foo": "Bar", "BazFoo": "Duck"}).Should(HaveKeyWithValue("Foo", "Bar"))
                                                  Expect(map[string]string{"Foo": "Bar", "BazFoo": "Duck"}).Should(HaveKeyWithValue(MatchRegexp(`.+Foo$`), "Bar"))
                                                  

                                                  func HaveLen

                                                  func HaveLen(count int) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                    HaveLen succeeds if actual has the passed-in length. Actual must be of type string, array, map, chan, or slice.

                                                    func HaveOccurred

                                                    func HaveOccurred() types.GomegaMatcher

                                                      HaveOccurred succeeds if actual is a non-nil error The typical Go error checking pattern looks like:

                                                      err := SomethingThatMightFail()
                                                      Expect(err).ShouldNot(HaveOccurred())
                                                      

                                                      func HavePrefix

                                                      func HavePrefix(prefix string, args ...interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                        HavePrefix succeeds if actual is a string or stringer that contains the passed-in string as a prefix. Optional arguments can be provided to construct via fmt.Sprintf().

                                                        func HaveSuffix

                                                        func HaveSuffix(suffix string, args ...interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                          HaveSuffix succeeds if actual is a string or stringer that contains the passed-in string as a suffix. Optional arguments can be provided to construct via fmt.Sprintf().

                                                          func InterceptGomegaFailures

                                                          func InterceptGomegaFailures(f func()) []string

                                                            InterceptGomegaHandlers runs a given callback and returns an array of failure messages generated by any Gomega assertions within the callback.

                                                            This is accomplished by temporarily replacing the *global* fail handler with a fail handler that simply annotates failures. The original fail handler is reset when InterceptGomegaFailures returns.

                                                            This is most useful when testing custom matchers, but can also be used to check on a value using a Gomega assertion without causing a test failure.

                                                            func MatchError

                                                            func MatchError(expected interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                              MatchError succeeds if actual is a non-nil error that matches the passed in string/error.

                                                              These are valid use-cases:

                                                              Expect(err).Should(MatchError("an error")) //asserts that err.Error() == "an error"
                                                              Expect(err).Should(MatchError(SomeError)) //asserts that err == SomeError (via reflect.DeepEqual)
                                                              

                                                              It is an error for err to be nil or an object that does not implement the Error interface

                                                              func MatchJSON

                                                              func MatchJSON(json interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                                MatchJSON succeeds if actual is a string or stringer of JSON that matches the expected JSON. The JSONs are decoded and the resulting objects are compared via reflect.DeepEqual so things like key-ordering and whitespace shouldn't matter.

                                                                func MatchRegexp

                                                                  MatchRegexp succeeds if actual is a string or stringer that matches the passed-in regexp. Optional arguments can be provided to construct a regexp via fmt.Sprintf().

                                                                  func MatchXML

                                                                    MatchXML succeeds if actual is a string or stringer of XML that matches the expected XML. The XMLs are decoded and the resulting objects are compared via reflect.DeepEqual so things like whitespaces shouldn't matter.

                                                                    func MatchYAML

The YAML's are decoded and the resulting objects are compared via reflect.DeepEqual so things like key-ordering and whitespace shouldn't matter.

                                                                      func Not

                                                                        Expect(1).To(Not(Equal(2))

                                                                        func Or

                                                                          Expect("hi").To(Or(HaveLen(3), HaveLen(2))

                                                                          func Panic() types.GomegaMatcher

                                                                            Panic succeeds if actual is a function that, when invoked, panics. Actual must be a function that takes no arguments and returns no results.

                                                                            func Receive

                                                                            func Receive(args ...interface{}) types.GomegaMatcher

                                                                              Receive succeeds if there is a value to be received on actual. Actual must be a channel (and cannot be a send-only channel) -- anything else is an error.

                                                                              Receive returns immediately and never blocks:

                                                                              - If there is nothing on the channel `c` then Expect(c).Should(Receive()) will fail and Ω(c).ShouldNot(Receive()) will pass.

                                                                              - If the channel `c` is closed then Expect(c).Should(Receive()) will fail and Ω(c).ShouldNot(Receive()) will pass.

                                                                              - If there is something on the channel `c` ready to be read, then Expect(c).Should(Receive()) will pass and Ω(c).ShouldNot(Receive()) will fail.

                                                                              If you have a go-routine running in the background that will write to channel `c` you can:

                                                                              Eventually(c).Should(Receive())
                                                                              

                                                                              This will timeout if nothing gets sent to `c` (you can modify the timeout interval as you normally do with `Eventually`)

                                                                              A similar use-case is to assert that no go-routine writes to a channel (for a period of time). You can do this with `Consistently`:

                                                                              Consistently(c).ShouldNot(Receive())
                                                                              

                                                                              You can pass `Receive` a matcher. If you do so, it will match the received object against the matcher. For example:

                                                                              Expect(c).Should(Receive(Equal("foo")))
                                                                              

                                                                              When given a matcher, `Receive` will always fail if there is nothing to be received on the channel.

                                                                              Passing Receive a matcher is especially useful when paired with Eventually:

                                                                              Eventually(c).Should(Receive(ContainSubstring("bar")))
                                                                              

                                                                              will repeatedly attempt to pull values out of `c` until a value matching "bar" is received.

                                                                              Finally, if you want to have a reference to the value *sent* to the channel you can pass the `Receive` matcher a pointer to a variable of the appropriate type:

                                                                              var myThing thing
                                                                              Eventually(thingChan).Should(Receive(&myThing))
                                                                              Expect(myThing.Sprocket).Should(Equal("foo"))
                                                                              Expect(myThing.IsValid()).Should(BeTrue())
                                                                              

                                                                              func RegisterFailHandler

                                                                              func RegisterFailHandler(handler types.GomegaFailHandler)

                                                                                RegisterFailHandler connects Ginkgo to Gomega. When a matcher fails the fail handler passed into RegisterFailHandler is called.

                                                                                func RegisterFailHandlerWithT

                                                                                func RegisterTestingT

                                                                                func RegisterTestingT(t types.GomegaTestingT)

                                                                                RegisterTestingT connects Gomega to Golang's XUnit style Testing.T tests. It is now deprecated and you should use NewGomegaWithT() instead.

                                                                                Legacy Documentation:

                                                                                func TestFarmHasCow(t *testing.T) {
                                                                                    RegisterTestingT(t)
                                                                                
                                                                                    f := farm.New([]string{"Cow", "Horse"})
                                                                                    Expect(f.HasCow()).To(BeTrue(), "Farm should have cow")
                                                                                }
                                                                                

                                                                                Note that this *testing.T is registered *globally* by Gomega (this is why you don't have to pass `t` down to the matcher itself). This means that you cannot run the XUnit style tests in parallel as the global fail handler cannot point to more than one testing.T at a time.

                                                                                NewGomegaWithT() does not have this limitation

                                                                                              Expect(SomethingThatMightFail()).Should(Succeed())
                                                                                              

                                                                                              It is a mistake to use Succeed with a function that has multiple return values. Gomega's Ω and Expect functions automatically trigger failure if any return values after the first return value are non-zero/non-nil. This means that Ω(MultiReturnFunc()).ShouldNot(Succeed()) can never pass.

                                                                                              func WithTransform

                                                                                                var plus1 = func(i int) int { return i + 1 }

                                                                                                And(), Or(), Not() and WithTransform() allow matchers to be composed into complex expressions.

                                                                                                  GomegaAssertion is returned by Ω and Expect and compares the actual value to the matcher passed to the Should/ShouldNot and To/ToNot/NotTo methods.

                                                                                                  Typically Should/ShouldNot are used with Ω and To/ToNot/NotTo are used with Expect though this is not enforced.

                                                                                                  All methods take a variadic optionalDescription argument. This is passed on to fmt.Sprintf() and is used to annotate failure messages.

                                                                                                  All methods return a bool that is true if hte assertion passed and false if it failed.

                                                                                                  Example:

                                                                                                  func Expect

                                                                                                    Expect wraps an actual value allowing assertions to be made on it:

                                                                                                    Expect("foo").To(Equal("foo"))
                                                                                                    

                                                                                                    If Expect is passed more than one argument it will pass the *first* argument to the matcher. All subsequent arguments will be required to be nil/zero.

                                                                                                    This is convenient if you want to make an assertion on a method/function that returns a value and an error - a common patter in Go.

                                                                                                    Then:

                                                                                                    Expect(MyAmazingThing()).Should(Equal(3))
                                                                                                    

                                                                                                    Will succeed only if `MyAmazingThing()` returns `(3, nil)`

                                                                                                    Expect and Ω are identical

                                                                                                    func ExpectWithOffset

                                                                                                    func ExpectWithOffset(offset int, actual interface{}, extra ...interface{}) GomegaAssertion

                                                                                                      ExpectWithOffset wraps an actual value allowing assertions to be made on it:

                                                                                                      ExpectWithOffset(1, "foo").To(Equal("foo"))
                                                                                                      

                                                                                                      Unlike `Expect` and `Ω`, `ExpectWithOffset` takes an additional integer argument this is used to modify the call-stack offset when computing line numbers.

                                                                                                      This is most useful in helper functions that make assertions. If you want Gomega's error message to refer to the calling line in the test (as opposed to the line in the helper function) set the first argument of `ExpectWithOffset` appropriately.

                                                                                                        If Ω is passed more than one argument it will pass the *first* argument to the matcher. All subsequent arguments will be required to be nil/zero.

                                                                                                        Ω(MyAmazingThing()).Should(Equal(3))
                                                                                                        

                                                                                                        Will succeed only if `MyAmazingThing()` returns `(3, nil)`

                                                                                                        Ω and Expect are identical

                                                                                                        type GomegaAsyncAssertion

                                                                                                        type GomegaAsyncAssertion interface {
                                                                                                        	Should(matcher types.GomegaMatcher, optionalDescription ...interface{}) bool
                                                                                                        	ShouldNot(matcher types.GomegaMatcher, optionalDescription ...interface{}) bool
                                                                                                        }

                                                                                                          GomegaAsyncAssertion is returned by Eventually and Consistently and polls the actual value passed into Eventually against the matcher passed to the Should and ShouldNot methods.

                                                                                                          Both Should and ShouldNot take a variadic optionalDescription argument. This is passed on to fmt.Sprintf() and is used to annotate failure messages. This allows you to make your failure messages more descriptive

                                                                                                          Both Should and ShouldNot return a boolean that is true if the assertion passed and false if it failed.

                                                                                                          Example:

                                                                                                          Eventually(myChannel).Should(Receive(), "Something should have come down the pipe.")
                                                                                                          Consistently(myChannel).ShouldNot(Receive(), "Nothing should have come down the pipe.")
                                                                                                          

                                                                                                          func Consistently

                                                                                                          func Consistently(actual interface{}, intervals ...interface{}) GomegaAsyncAssertion

                                                                                                            Consistently wraps an actual value allowing assertions to be made on it. The assertion is tried periodically and is required to pass for a period of time.

                                                                                                            Both the total time and polling interval are configurable as optional arguments: The first optional argument is the duration that Consistently will run for The second optional argument is the polling interval

                                                                                                            Both intervals can either be specified as time.Duration, parsable duration strings or as floats/integers. In the last case they are interpreted as seconds.

                                                                                                            If Consistently is passed an actual that is a function taking no arguments and returning at least one value, then Consistently will call the function periodically and try the matcher against the function's first return value.

                                                                                                            If the function returns more than one value, then Consistently will pass the first value to the matcher and assert that all other values are nil/zero. This allows you to pass Consistently a function that returns a value and an error - a common pattern in Go.

                                                                                                            Consistently is useful in cases where you want to assert that something *does not happen* over a period of tiem. For example, you want to assert that a goroutine does *not* send data down a channel. In this case, you could:

                                                                                                            Consistently(channel).ShouldNot(Receive())
                                                                                                            

                                                                                                            Consistently's default duration is 100ms, and its default polling interval is 10ms

                                                                                                            func ConsistentlyWithOffset

                                                                                                            func ConsistentlyWithOffset(offset int, actual interface{}, intervals ...interface{}) GomegaAsyncAssertion

                                                                                                              ConsistentlyWithOffset operates like Consistnetly but takes an additional initial argument to indicate an offset in the call stack. This is useful when building helper functions that contain matchers. To learn more, read about `ExpectWithOffset`.

                                                                                                              func Eventually

                                                                                                                Both the timeout and polling interval are configurable as optional arguments: The first optional argument is the timeout The second optional argument is the polling interval

                                                                                                                Both intervals can either be specified as time.Duration, parsable duration strings or as floats/integers. In the last case they are interpreted as seconds.

                                                                                                                If Eventually is passed an actual that is a function taking no arguments and returning at least one value, then Eventually will call the function periodically and try the matcher against the function's first return value.

                                                                                                                Eventually(thingImPolling.Count).Should(BeNumerically(">=", 17))
                                                                                                                

                                                                                                                If the function returns more than one value, then Eventually will pass the first value to the matcher and assert that all other values are nil/zero.

                                                                                                                Will pass only if the the returned error is nil and the returned string passes the matcher.

                                                                                                                Eventually's default timeout is 1 second, and its default polling interval is 10ms
