To add a collaborator to this project you will need to use the Relish gem to add the collaborator via a terminal command. Soon you'll be able to also add collaborators here!More about adding a collaborator
RSpec Rails 2.3
rspec-rails extends Rails' built-in testing framework to support rspec examples
for requests, controllers, models, views, and helpers.
rspec-rails-2 supports rails-3.0.0 and later. For earlier versions of Rails,
you need rspec-rails-1.3.
gem install rspec-rails
This installs the following gems:
rspec rspec-core rspec-expectations rspec-mocks rspec-rails
Add rspec-rails to the :test and :development groups in the Gemfile:
group :test, :development do gem "rspec-rails", "~> 2.0.1" end
It needs to be in the :development group to expose generators and rake tasks
without having to type RAILS_ENV=test.
Now you can run:
script/rails generate rspec:install
This adds the spec directory and some skeleton files, including a .rspec
Webrat and Capybara
You can choose between webrat or capybara for simulating a browser, automating
a browser, or setting expectations using the matchers they supply. Just add
your preference to the Gemfile:
gem "webrat" gem "capybara"
Note that Capybara matchers are not available in view or helper specs.
The documentation for rspec-rails is a work in progress. We'll be adding
Cucumber features over time, and clarifying existing ones. If you have
specific features you'd like to see added, find the existing documentation
incomplete or confusing, or, better yet, wish to write a missing Cucumber
feature yourself, please submit an issue or a pull request.
