Cool new way to write more expressive testing DSL’s in FitnesseDotNet

Check out Kenneth
Kasajian’s new PhraseFixture
idea for more readable Fit style tests.  Two thumbs up from me Kenneth.

    Just one thing I’m not sure about. This means all the parameters must be ordered the same way in the DoFixture and the Fit table right?

    @Ayende,

    Quite honestly, how is this not a “real” DSL? I take it that “real” DSL can only == Boo then?

    I something very similar to that about two years ago.
    I like that, but I think that it is better to define a real DSL for this. :-)

    I’m still leaning more toward custom tools that drive the application, and the whole hexagonal architecture approach. We are moving to a model of: developer provides tools to run acceptance tests agreed with tester as part of deliverables for the story. That not only makes it easy the tester to validate the story, but those tools tend to grow at least into quite useful monitoring tools, but sometimes into parts of the application. The trouble with FIT seems to be that it never has the chance to enter this kind of value stream.
