Your Turn

Working in the exercises.Rmd file:

  • Both test-count-donations.R and test-tables.R use donations_test_data. Let’s move it to a helper file. First, create the file with fs::file_create(“tests/testthat/helper-donations_data.R”).

  • Open it manually or use edit_file().

  • Move the code to create donations_test_data into helper- donations_data.R.

  • Remove the donations_test_data code from the two test files.

  • Run the tests.
