README

FactoryGirlElixir

Build Status

Minimal implementation of Ruby's factory_girl in Elixir.

This is a rewrite of the factory_boy project to make it work on Elixir v1.0.x.

Usage

Add FactoryGirlElixir as a dependency in your mix.exs file.

defp deps do
  [
    {:factory_girl_elixir, "~> 0.1.1"}
  ]
end

You should also update your applications list to include both projects:

def application do
  [applications: [:factory_girl_elixir]]
end

After you are done, run mix deps.get in your shell to fetch the dependencies.

Defining a Factory

defmodule Factory do
  use FactoryGirlElixir.Factory

  factory :user do
    field :password, "secret"
    # create a sequence using an anonymous functions
    field :username, fn(n) ->
      "username#{n}"
    end
    # or an anonymous functions shortcut
    field :email, &("foo#{&1}@example.com")
  end

  factory :assets do
    field :name, "bob"
  end
end

Then query the module to get a list of attributes for your record

user = Factory.attributes_for(:user) #=> %{password: "secret", username: "username1", email: "foo1@example.com"}
parametrized_user = user |> Factory.parametrize
#=> %{"email" => "foo1@example.com", "password" => "secret", "username" => "username1"}

You can override attributes

user = Factory.attributes_for(:user, email: "user@example.org")
#=> %{password: "secret", username: "username1", email: "user@example.org"}
