configure expectation framework

By default, RSpec is configured to include rspec-expectations for expressing
desired outcomes. You can also configure RSpec to use:

  • rspec/expectations (explicitly)
  • stdlib assertions
    • test/unit assertions in ruby 1.8
    • minitest assertions in ruby 1.9
  • rspec/expecations and stlib assertions
Scenarios
configure rspec-expectations (explicitly)
Given
a file named "example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.expect_with :rspec
end

describe 5 do
  it "is greater than 4" do
    5.should be > 4
  end
end
When
I run "rspec example_spec.rb"
Then
the examples should all pass
configure test/unit assertions
Given
a file named "example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.expect_with :stdlib
end

describe 5 do
  it "is greater than 4" do
    assert 5 > 4, "expected 5 to be greater than 4"
  end
end
When
I run "rspec example_spec.rb"
Then
the examples should all pass
configure rspec/expecations AND test/unit assertions
Given
a file named "example_spec.rb" with:
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.expect_with :rspec, :stdlib
end

describe 5 do
  it "is greater than 4" do
    assert 5 > 4, "expected 5 to be greater than 4"
  end

  it "is less than 4" do
    5.should be < 6
  end
end
When
I run "rspec example_spec.rb"
Then
the examples should all pass
