LSP has “marker tests” defined in
internal/lsp/testdata, as well as traditional tests.
Marker tests have a standard input file, like
internal/lsp/testdata/foo/bar.go, and some may have a corresponding golden file, like
internal/lsp/testdata/foo/bar.go.golden. The former is the “input” and the latter is the expected output.
Each input file contains annotations like
//@suggestedfix("}", "refactor.rewrite", "Fill anonymous struct"). These annotations are interpreted by test runners to perform certain actions. The expected output after those actions is encoded in the golden file.
When tests are run, each annotation results in a new subtest, which is encoded in the golden file with a heading like,
-- suggestedfix_bar_11_21 -- // expected contents go here -- suggestedfix_bar_13_20 -- // expected contents go here
The format of these headings vary: they are defined by the
Golden function for each annotation. In the case above, the format is: annotation name, file name, annotation line location, annotation character location.
internal/lsp/testdata/foo/bar.go has three
suggestedfix annotations, the golden file should have three headers with
To see a list of all available annotations, see the exported “expectations” in tests.go.
To run marker tests,
cd /path/to/tools # The marker tests are located in "internal/lsp", "internal/lsp/cmd, and # "internal/lsp/source". go test ./internal/lsp/...
There are quite a lot of marker tests, so to run one individually, pass the test path and heading into a -run argument:
cd /path/to/tools go test ./internal/lsp/... -v -run TestLSP/Modules/SuggestedFix/bar_11_21
Sometimes, a change is made to lsp that requires a change to multiple golden files. When this happens, you can run,
cd /path/to/tools ./internal/lsp/reset_golden.sh
