bats - Bash Automated Testing System
bats [-c] [-p | -t] test [test ...]
test is the path to a Bats test file, or the path to a directory containing Bats test
Bats is a TAP-compliant testing framework for Bash. It provides a simple way to verify
that the UNIX programs you write behave as expected.
A Bats test file is a Bash script with special syntax for defining test cases. Under the
hood, each test case is just a function with a description.
Test cases consist of standard shell commands. Bats makes use of Bash´s errexit (set -e)
option when running test cases. If every command in the test case exits with a 0 status
code (success), the test passes. In this way, each line is an assertion of truth.
See bats(7) for more information on writing Bats tests.
To run your tests, invoke the bats interpreter with a path to a test file. The file´s test
cases are run sequentially and in isolation. If all the test cases pass, bats exits with a
0 status code. If there are any failures, bats exits with a 1 status code.
You can invoke the bats interpreter with multiple test file arguments, or with a path to a
directory containing multiple .bats files. Bats will run each test file individually and
aggregate the results. If any test case fails, bats exits with a 1 status code.

When you run Bats from a terminal, you´ll see output as each test is performed, with a
check-mark next to the test´s name if it passes or an "X" if it fails.
$ bats addition.bats

If Bats is not connected to a terminal--in other words, if you run it from a continuous
integration system or redirect its output to a file--the results are displayed in
human-readable, machine-parsable TAP format. You can force TAP output from a terminal by
invoking Bats with the --tap option.
$ bats --tap addition.bats
ok 1 addition using bc
ok 2 addition using dc
The bats interpreter exits with a value of 0 if all test cases pass, or 1 if one or more
test cases fail.
