Atom and Wiki Driven Testing

December 20th, 2005

Its been a long standing todo to port Mark’s FeedParser tests to work against Magpie, possibly with an intermediate representation to allow cross-language testing. (has any work been down on capturing unit tests/acceptance tests in XML?) Sam’s approach hilights Ruby-the-language’s awesome flexibility (I’d been playing with something similar for the parser we wrote for Odeo), but doesn’t map to PHP/Magpie very well.

Phil kicked off a new round of testing for Atom 1.0, the results of which are now captured in the Atom wiki. (not to mention a few gentle nudges on Magpie’s lack of 1.0 compliance.)

All of which got me thinking, it would be exceptionally cool if someone made the FeedParser’s tests available on the Atom wiki using Ward’s FIT concept in a documented, reportable fashion.

Any takers?
