Model specs

Model specs are marked by :type => :model or if you have set
config.infer_spec_type_from_file_location! by placing them in spec/models.

A model spec is a thin wrapper for an ActiveSupport::TestCase, and includes all
of the behavior and assertions that it provides, in addition to RSpec's own
behavior and expectations.


require "rails_helper"

RSpec.describe Post, :type => :model do
  context "with 2 or more comments" do
    it "orders them in reverse chronologically" do
      post = Post.create!
      comment1 = post.comments.create!(:body => "first comment")
      comment2 = post.comments.create!(:body => "second comment")
      expect(post.reload.comments).to eq([comment2, comment1])
