Extension:MWUnit/Assertions

This appendix lists the various assertion parser functions that are available.

Global assertionsEdit

#assert_equalsEdit

{{#assert_equals: string $expected | string $actual [ | string $message ] }}

Reports an error identified by $message if and only if the two variables, $expected and $actual are not identical to each other.

{{#assert_equals: 1 | 1 }} <!-- $message may be omitted -->
{{#assert_equals: {{Template}} | foo | Template is not 'foo' }}

#assert_equals_ignore_caseEdit

{{#assert_equals_ignore_case: string $expected | string $actual [ | string $message ] }}

Reports an error identified by $message if and only if the two variables, $expected and $actual are not identical to each other. Differences in casing are ignored in the comparison.

{{#assert_equals_ignore_case: 1 | 1 }} <!-- $message may be omitted -->
{{#assert_equals_ignore_case: {{Template}} | Foo | Template is not 'foo' }}

#assert_errorEdit

{{#assert_error: string $payload [ | string $message ] }}
