runittotestthat: Convert RUnit tests to testthat tests.

Description Details


testthat has some nice features like test caching that aren't suppported by RUnit. This package lets you automatically convert your existing RUnit tests to testthat tests.


There are three functions of interest:

  1. convert_test converts an individual RUnit test to a call to a testthat test.

  2. convert_test_file sources all the tests in a file, converts each one, then outputs them to a file (or file connection; stdout by default).

  3. convert_package_tests takes a string naming a package, or a devtools::package object and loops over the files in 'inst/tests' (or wherever you specify), converting the tests, and outputting to files or stdout.
