Testing Commands That Die

Posted 5 months ago by arvisto

I've a command that drops the database and restores the structure from a schema dump, then calls migrate. I use it when I break my local db; it throws away the db and creates a brand spanking new one.

I added safeguards so that if you ever try to run it outside of local env it calls die().

My problem is I don't know how to test it. If I call it from within my tests expecting it to fail it will die and bring down the test suite with it.

Any suggestions? Fanks!
