=head1 COMMON PROBLEMS

=head2 Weird characters in the *compilation* buffer when running tests

You probably use a recent version of Test::Harness or something. It
has nice colorized output as default. Which doesn't look so good in
the not-so-ansi-color-aware buffer.

Change your Project Config for running files to

  prove --nocolor



=head1 CONVENIENT TRICKS

=head2 Highlight Catalyst/DBIC setup code

Add this

  -
    moniker: "Package method calls (Cat/DBIC)"
    rex:
      - qr/ __PACKAGE__ \s* -> \s* ( [\w]+ .* ) /x

to the Bookmarks section in your Project Config.  It will highlight things like

  __PACKAGE__->table("cust");

These declarations are part of what defines the class, and so are very
useful to see in the Class Overview.



=head2 Configure Run to run your unusual test files

If you look in the config file in .PerlySense/project.yml (run
C<perly_sense create_project> to create one) you'll see that the
action to take when running different sorts of files is entirely
configurable.

The default configuration for .t files look like this:

    run_file:
      -
        command: "prove  --norc --nocolor -v ${INC} \"${SOURCE_FILE}\""
        moniker: Test
        rex: \.t$
        run_from: source_root_directory

You can define what to do with tests specific to your project. Just
put extra mappings in the list. First match is used.

You can do the same in the debug section to run the files through a
debugged Perl.


=head3 Run Test::Class classes with C-o C-r

Let's say you have L<Test::Class> test modules under
C<t/classes/Test>.  When you type C<C-o C-r> you want to run them
through prove, just like ordinary .t file.

Before the normal .pm spec, add this:

  -
    command: "prove  --norc --nocolor -v ${INC} \"${SOURCE_FILE}\""
    moniker: Test
    rex: t/classes/Test/.*?\.pm$
    run_from: source_root_directory


=head3 Run yaml files through a custom test framework

Let's say you have a custom test framework that uses yaml file
configuration files to drive the tests. In the shell they are run like this:

  prove -v t/acceptance.t :: "t/acceptance/user/user-can-log-in.yml"

Add this:

  -
    command: "prove  --norc --nocolor -v ${INC} t/acceptance.t :: \"${SOURCE_FILE}\""
    moniker: Test
    rex: t/acceptance/.*?\.yml$
    run_from: source_root_directory

Now you can edit your yaml file and type C-o C-r to run the acceptance
test, just like you normally do with .t files.
