A Christmas tree formatter for RSpec!

This post was originally published on the Elabs blog, before Elabs and Varvet joined forces.

It’s December, a time of glögg and gingerbread cookies with blue cheese… and Christmas trees!

Me and Anders figured we’d bring some Christmas spirit into our test suite, so we created an RSpec formatter very much like the regular progress formatter with green dots… except it’s a tree!

Source code is on GitHub, v0.1, and a nasty piece of code, but it’s December so it’s very much time to ship it! It’s named christmas_tree_formatter.

Here’s a GIF of it in action:
