Timecop makes it easy to travel through or freeze time for creating a
predictable and ultimately testable scenario.
It is a wrapper class for manipulating the extensions to the Time, Date,
and DateTime objects. It avoids overloading of functions with optional
arguments while writing test cases. It is possible to nest multiple
calls to and Timecop.freeze, with each block maintaining
concept of "now". Having no dependencies, it works with regular Ruby projects
and Ruby on Rails projects.
