What are the .spec descendants of game?

Asked by 1 year ago
Edited 1 year ago

I ran a for loop through game like this:

for _,d in pairs(game:GetDescendants()) do
    print(d)
end

It gave me every descendant of game (over 1,800, apparently) and within that group were things ending in .spec. These "things" appear to be associated with an actual child. What exactly are these .spec things? (Example: Action.spec)

I have tried this myself and also searched Google but nothing came up on Google either, I am guessing and going to say that .spec means specification? Cheesepotato999 8 — 1y

These are unit test modules using TestEZ. TestEZ will automatically execute any files suffixed with .spec.lua or Roblox modules suffixed with .spec.

The globals describe, it, and expect are inspired by busted.

I ran a GetFullName on them, and they seem to be in Roblox's GUI

Here's the full dump if your curious

Also, I looked for one of them via CoreGui and they look to be ModuleScripts

I also looked through the source of the "InviteToGameAnalystics.spec" module. Here's it's source. There is a lot of unknown variables though

            self.onSetRBXEventStream:fire(...)
        end

        return eventStream

it appears to be a file that has to do with rpmbuild, some thing for developers i guess, im not too sure though, however what i think it is, is that its something internal thats used by the roblox devs that regular roblox users dont need to worry about
