The more I work with test-kitchen, the more I have wanted a different workflow. Essentially, I really liked the idea of concurrency, but I struggled to parse the output. As a result, I found myself opening a number of windows in tmux and running
kitchen test <OS>.
This idea combined with some Saturday night hacking has resulted in
kitchen-tmux. Instead of going through each OS, I create a new session and then a window in tmux for each of the instances in test-kitchen. From there each window kicks off
kitchen test for that instance. I haven’t used it as part of my workflow yet, but playing with it a bit, this seems like it is going to be a huge win.
