We want to thank all the people for contributing code and to fill bug reports. This helps making Rex better and better :)

Incompatible Changes

We're sorry, but this release comes with some incompatible changes. The most changes won't effect the majority of users, but we needed to change those things to fix some nasty things and to be more flexible in the future.

Rex::Test

With Rex::Test it is possible to test your Rexfile on a local VM before executing the code on your servers. Rex::Test uses Rex::Box to create the VM, but currently it only supports VirtualBox VMs.

To create a test just create a new file inside a t directory: t/base.t.

use Rex::Test::Base;
use Data::Dumper;
use Rex -base;

test {
  my $t = shift;

  $t->name("ubuntu test");

  $t->base_vm("http://box.rexify.org/box/ubuntu-server-12.10-amd64.ova");
  $t->vm_auth(user => "root", password => "box");

  $t->run_task("setup");

  $t->has_package("vim");
  $t->has_package("ntp");
  $t->has_package("unzip");
  $t->has_file("/etc/ntp.conf");
  $t->has_service_running("ntp");
  $t->has_content("/etc/passwd", qr{root:x:0:}ms);

  run "ls -l";
  $t->ok($? == 0, "ls -l returns success.");

  $t->finish;
};

1;

Rex::Box

Create clean development environments for your projects. Test your software in a production like environment.

With Rex/Boxes you can easily create your test environment with VirtualBox. You can use prebuild VM Images or roll your own. Read the quickstart guide to create your own environment in minutes.
