file fixture

Rails 5 adds simple access to sample files called file fixtures.
File fixtures are normal files stored in spec/fixtures/files by default.

File fixtures are represented as +Pathname+ objects.
This makes it easy to extract specific information:

file_fixture("example.txt").read # get the file's content
file_fixture("example.mp3").size # get the file size

You can customize files location by setting

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.file_fixture_path = "spec/custom_directory"
end
Scenarios
Reading file content from fixtures directory
Given
file fixtures are available
And
a file named "spec/fixtures/files/sample.txt" with:
Hello
And
a file named "spec/lib/file_spec.rb" with:
require "rails_helper"

RSpec.describe "file" do
  it "reads sample file" do
    expect(file_fixture("sample.txt").read).to eq("Hello")
  end
end
When
I run rspec spec/lib/file_spec.rb
Then
the examples should all pass
