Thanks, works for me. Another question regarding ongoing mongo proposal: I will most likely have sample project for sanity tests with mongod running. Remember you had a plans for a CI so this may be worth committing too in some form. Have you though about how sanity/functional test should look within CI yet?

Sorry for all tediousness but I have quite a long-term plans for vibe.d thus personally interested in doing everything right ;)

So far I loosely had the plan to make a separate directory for higher level and performance tests and put the tests there as normal functions. However, from there to a nicely CI integrated solution is obviously still some way.

Maybe for now something like this:


And app.d simply run the tests sequentially, e.g.:

import std.stdio;
import test_xx.d;
import test_xy.d;

void runTest(alias F)()
	string status = "OK";
	try F();
	catch status = "ERR";
	writefln("%s: %s", F.stringof, status);

void main()
	// iterate over all tests and call runTest

Later that could be extended with better diagnostics, performance measurements and some kind of structured output for nice display on the CI server.

** I recognize that this approach does not enforce test isolation, so the results may sometimes not be accurate. However, the alternative of compiling each test separately would incur a considerable hit on the CI compute resources.
