td.T type

testing.T can also be encapsulated in td.T type, simplifying again the test:

import (
  "testing"
  "time"

  "github.com/maxatome/go-testdeep/td"
)

func TestCreateRecord(tt *testing.T) {
  t := td.NewT(tt)

  before := time.Now().Truncate(time.Second)
  record, err := CreateRecord()

  if t.CmpNoError(err) {
    t := t.RootName("RECORD") // Use RECORD instead of DATA in failure reports

    // Using Struct shortcut method
    t.Struct(record,
      &Record{
        Name: "Bob",
        Age:  23,
      },
      td.StructFields{
        "Id":        td.NotZero(),
        "CreatedAt": td.Between(before, time.Now()),
      },
      "Newly created record")

    // Or using Cmp method, it's a matter of taste
    t.Cmp(record,
      td.Struct(
        Record{
          Name: "Bob",
          Age:  23,
        },
        td.StructFields{
          "Id":        td.NotZero(),
          "CreatedAt": td.Between(before, time.Now()),
        }),
      "Newly created record")
  }
}

Note the use of RootName method, it allows to name what we are going to test, instead of the default “DATA”.

If CreateRecord() had set Name field to “Alice” value instead of expected “Bob”, output would have been (note “RECORD” replaced default “DATA”):
