Project: RSpec Rails 6.0

Feature spec

Feature specs are high-level tests meant to exercise slices of functionality
through an application. They should drive the application only via its external
interface, usually web pages.

Feature specs are marked by :type => :feature or if you have set
config.infer_spec_type_from_file_location! by placing them in

Feature specs require the Capybara gem, version 2.13.0 or later. Refer to the capybara API documentation for more information on the methods and matchers that can be
used in feature specs. Capybara is intended to simulate browser requests with HTTP. It will primarily send HTML content.

The feature and scenario DSL correspond to describe and it, respectively.
These methods are simply aliases that allow feature specs to read more as
customer and acceptance tests. When capybara is required it sets
:type => :feature automatically for you.

  • @capybara
specify creating a Widget by driving the application with capybara
a file named "spec/features/widget_management_spec.rb" with:
require "rails_helper"

RSpec.feature "Widget management", :type => :feature do
  scenario "User creates a new widget" do
    visit "/widgets/new"

    click_button "Create Widget"

    expect(page).to have_text("Widget was successfully created.")
I run rspec spec/features/widget_management_spec.rb
the example should pass
