ANN: RSpactor 0.9.10 (aka. beta)

Hey all.

I’ve just release a first preview/beta of the upcoming RSpactor.app; a
spec runner for Mac OS X Leopard. This is just some kind of test
version and I’m looking for people who love to sit on the edge :slight_smile: I
need some help to find bugs and polish the interface/interaction.

RSpactor is basically a tool like ‘autotest’ but runs on Cocoa and
focuses on RSpec. Instead of constantly polling your files it uses
FSEvents to listen to changes in your project directory. Growl support
is build in…

So if you are interested have a look at:

thanks.

I’m using rspactor now over autotest. I’ll give the beta a shot.

Well, I got it running (seemingly), but I’m not 100% sure how to use it.
-Corey

Just put a directory path to a project in the text field, and click Run.
It
will do the rest as far as I can tell,
Zach

If you have setup the binary as described in INSTALL.txt you can even
run rspactor from command line.
‘cd’ in your project directory and run ‘rspactor’…

Works for me! However I have a feature request. Currently I exclude
certain files like so:
Autotest.add_hook :initialize do |at|
%w{this_kind that_kind .git vendor .blah}.each {|exception|
at.add_exception(exception)}
end

Will there be a way to do something like this with RSpactor? I like
having the ability to ignore certain files. Some I skip because they
don’t work with my setup and to use RSpactor I have to comment out the
whole file and remember not to accidentally commit it :slight_smile:

Very cool, I’ll try it out tomorrow.

Yes. This is one of the features I want to implement before the 1.0
release.

Andreas,
This is great. I have been using it since Monday and I am loving it.
Is there a mailing list setup just for RSpactor?
