Specter Screencast

I have created a 15 minute screen cast demoing some of Specter's features. In the screen cast I create a simple specification of an object, using a behavior driven development style.

Play the demo (requires Macromedia Flash to be installed)

Specter Project

Writing about web page

SourceForge finally accepted my project proposal.

I'm waiting on the SVN migration to take affect – but the source will be online very soon I hope.

For now, you can read more on the website .

Source now available via SubVersion:

I'm waiting for SourceForge to approve my Specter project (previously know as BooSpec). It's been 7 days so far already.. I'm hoping they're just really busy and will get round to me soon.
I'll blog as soon as the project is approved (fingers crossed!). Anyone who wants to collaborate will then be welcome to join the project.

I had another syntax idea today as well…

Instead of something like:

how about:
foo.Must.Be <= 42

I can make the object returned by "Be" overload the comparison operators. This makes for much less typing and I think is easier to read. Of course, I can support both forms in Specter and let the user decide which they prefer.

Similarly the equality specifications become:

foo.Must.Be == 42
Actually, now that I think about it… I can probably make the Boo macro look for statements that are just binary expressions (A op B) and output correct method calls at compile time. This would make for specs like this:
context "Sample spec":
x as int

x < 42
:D This could be awesome!
