Storytests satisfy the demands of both requirements and quality assurance, in an amalgam that initially looks weird and counter intuitive. Storytests are concrete examples that express important things about the business domain and about the system. They are matched and generalised in the code, using the same “ubiquitous language”. Week by week, as thinking and understanding grow and change through Domain Driven Design (DDD), the storytests grow and change. And so the code evolves.
Fit is the most popular open source tool for expressing storytests and running them as tests against a system. However, there are several traps that many fall into in writing storytests.
FitLibrary considerably extends and enhances Fit. It is currently evolving in a jump to better support DDD and testing, and thus changing the nature of storytests and the nature of fixturing.
