A fake filesystem. Use it in your tests.

Mocha is great. But when your library is all about manipulating the filesystem, you really want to test the behavior and not the implementation. If you're mocking and stubbing every call to FileUtils or File, you're tightly coupling your tests with the implementation. With FakeFS:
def test_creates_directory

Library.add "directory"
assert File.directory?("directory")




see README file.
