Available Layers » test


This layers allows to run tests directly in SpaceVim.


To use this configuration layer, add the following snippet to your custom configuration file.

  name = "test"


To set or override any configuration (see supported settings here) you may use the override_config:

  name = "test"
    java_runner = "gradletest"
    java_gradletest_executable = "./gradlew test"

The example above is equivalent to adding the following in viml:

let test#java#runner = "gradletest"
let test#java#gradletest#executable = "./gradlew test"

In essence, it replaces _ with # and prepends test# to the keys inside override_config.

Key bindings

Key Binding Description
SPC k n Run nearest test
SPC k f Run test file
SPC k s Runs the whole test suite (if the current file is a test file, runs that framework’s test suite, otherwise determines the test framework from the last run test).
SPC k l Runs the last test
SPC k v Visits the test file from which you last run your tests (useful when you’re trying to make a test pass, and you dive deep into application code and close your test buffer to make more space, and once you’ve made it pass you want to go back to the test file to write more tests)
