SafeTestsets is a best practice for testing. This kind of
TestSet keeps tests from interfering with each other, so I couldn’t define a function
setup_test() outside of
@safetestset and use it inside the
TestSet. I figured out a way to do it and wonder whether others are using different methods?
If I make a named module in the testing code, like
module TestSetup, then I can refer to it within a
using ..TestSetup. This works because each
SafeTestset implicitly places its code within a module to guard it from other
The other rule of the game is that
TestSets can be nested, as long as
SafeTestset is at the bottom of the hierarchy. At this point, I’m treating
SafeTestset the way I’d treat each unit test in Python, R, or C++ and treating
@test as a testing assertion.
