# Pretty Assertions

When writing tests in Rust, you'll probably use `assert_eq!(a, b)` _a lot_.

If such a test fails, it will present all the details of `a` and `b`, but you have to spot, the differences yourself, which is not always straightforward, like here:

![standard assertion](examples/standard_assertion.png)

Wouldn't that task be _much_ easier with a colorful diff?

![pretty assertion](examples/pretty_assertion.png)

Yep — and you only need **one line of code** to make it happen:

#[macro_use] extern crate pretty_assertions;

<summary>Show the example behind the screenshots above.</summary>

// 1. add the `pretty_assertions` dependency to `Cargo.toml`.
// 2. insert this line at the top of your crate root or integration test
#[macro_use] extern crate pretty_assertions;

fn main() {
    #[derive(Debug, PartialEq)]
    struct Foo {
        lorem: &'static str,
        ipsum: u32,
        dolor: Result<String, String>,

    let x = Some(Foo { lorem: "Hello World!", ipsum: 42, dolor: Ok("hey".to_string())});
    let y = Some(Foo { lorem: "Hello Wrold!", ipsum: 42, dolor: Ok("hey ho!".to_string())});

    assert_eq!(x, y);

## Tip

Specify it as [`[dev-dependencies]`](
and it will only be used for compiling tests, examples, and benchmarks.
This way the compile time of `cargo build` won't be affected!

In your crate root, also add `#[cfg(test)]` to the crate import, like this:

#[cfg(test)] // <-- not needed in examples + integration tests
extern crate pretty_assertions;

## Note

* Each example and integration test also needs `#[macro_use] extern crate
  pretty_assertions`, if you want colorful diffs there.
* The replacement is only effective in your own crate, not in other libraries
  you include.
* `assert_ne` is also switched to multi-line presentation, but does _not_ show
  a diff.
