### #MoteT Source

`newtype MoteT bracket test m a`

The main `MoteT`

/ `Mote`

monadic DSL used to describe tests and groups of
tests.

After description via this DSL a `Plan`

can be generated, that can then
finally be interpreted into some target monad.

- The
`bracket`

type represents a type of kind`Type -> Type`

kind in which bracketing can be dealt with. This type is higher kinded as the "before" part of a bracket is expressed by a type like`bracket r`

, so that the "after" part can consume it as`r -> bracket Unit`

later. If bracketing is not required, setting this to`Const Void`

is a good way to communicate that it is unused/unusable. - The
`test`

type represents the type of tests. The kind here is only required to be`Type`

but will usually be something like`m Unit`

(where`m`

here is some monad to run the tests in, not the`m`

of`MoteT`

). - The
`m`

is an underlying monad that can be used to perform effects while constructing the test suite. This allows for tests to be generated from the filesystem, reading from a`Reader`

-based environment, etc.

The `bracket`

and `test`

types are separated to allow for tests and
bracketing to have different constraints and capabilities. In some cases
it might be desirable to run tests with an alternative `Reader`

, or
restrict the kind of effects tests are allowed to perform compared with
the bracketing code.

### #bracket Source

`bracket :: forall resource a m test bracket. Monad m => { after :: resource -> bracket Unit, before :: bracket resource } -> MoteT bracket test m a -> MoteT bracket test m a`

Specifies actions to run before and after the following group(s) and/or test(s).

The bracketing is applied to every following group or test individually; it will be repeated when each group or test is run.
