* test harness in new generated merb apps with helpers for testing
merb without starting a server.
* pin down plugin arch
Seems to me that these two tasks go together unless you want to have
rspec built in Merb.
Regarding the test harness, my understanding is that:
- a developer should be able to easily write specs against a merb application.
- a developer should not need to start a merb server to test his/her app
- a developer should be able to generate a Model and its examples
- a developer should be able to generate a Controller and its examples
- a developer should be able to generate a view and its examples
- a developer should be able to use merb built in example helpers
(mock a request..)
- a merb plugin developer should be able to test his/her plugin
Is that correct? Do you mind if we create a list of user stories,
assign priorities (critical, essential, nonessential) and try to get
things done? Or do you prefer to just work on it and we'll see later
