Difference

Better way to identify what's different between 2 instances.

Have you ever written tests? Usually they use equality asserts, e.g. XCTAssertEqual, what happens if the objects aren't equal? Xcode throws a wall of text at you:

This forces you to manually scan the text and try to figure out exactly whats wrong, what if instead you could just learn which property is different?

Installation

CocoaPods

Add pod 'Difference' to your Podfile.

Carthage

Add github "krzysztofzablocki/Difference" to your Cartfile.

SwiftPM

Add .package(url: "https://github.com/krzysztofzablocki/Difference.git", .branch("master")), dependency in your Package manifest.

Using lldb

Just write the following to see the difference between 2 instances:

po dumpDiff(expected, received)

Integrate with XCTest

Just add this to your test target:

public func AssertEqual<T: Equatable>(_ expected: T, _ received: T, file: StaticString = #file, line: UInt = #line) {
    XCTAssertTrue(expected == received, "Found difference for " + diff(expected, received).joined(separator: ", "), file: file, line: line)
}

Integrate with Quick

Just add this to your test target:

public func equalDiff<T: Equatable>(_ expectedValue: T?) -> Predicate<T> {
    return Predicate.define { actualExpression in
        let receivedValue = try actualExpression.evaluate()

        if receivedValue == nil {
            var message = ExpectationMessage.fail("")
            if let expectedValue = expectedValue {
                message = ExpectationMessage.expectedCustomValueTo("equal <\(expectedValue)>", "nil")
            }
            return PredicateResult(status: .fail, message: message)
        }
        if expectedValue == nil {
            return PredicateResult(status: .fail, message: ExpectationMessage.fail("").appendedBeNilHint())
        }

        return PredicateResult(bool: receivedValue == expectedValue, message: ExpectationMessage.fail("Found difference for " + diff(expectedValue, receivedValue).joined(separator: ", ")))
    }
}
