I don't care for now about unit tests. So ... eat him ! :o)
Just goes the way you want, it'll stay a good start app to learn more about cake.

I think the users of Neutrino don't care much whether there are tests, at least I don't see tests as a feature. However, for you as a developer, writing tests is a good opportunity to learn something new, so go for it ;-)

Thank you both for your input.

I didn't really intend to make any unit tests and call them a feature. I'm just wondering whether good test coverage would give more confidence in the final product? Is it something that should be considered an advantage over similar products?

I'm still unsure of the answer. (It's not 42)

I think in the longterm it is an advantage to have tests, because tests usually lead to a better design, hence it becomes easier to extend the application. And it helps to prevent that you break the application by accident. In the short-term, however, it will probably slow you down.

Yes, you do have a point there, long term benefits. 1:0, tests are in the lead now..
