Autotest does not start

I have a non rails app using rspec2. I created the autotest/
discover.rb and put in it Autotest.add_discovery {“rspec2”}. When I
run under bundler I get -

loading autotest/rspec2
and a prompt back

When standalone I get:

loading autotest/rspec2
style: Rspec2

and a prompt. Any ideasas to the problem. I am sure I am missing
something because there is no rails involved.

Any help on this. I think I have read all posts related to autotest
but still do not have the answer. Is there something that works better
with Rspec that autotest?

When you say “and a prompt (back)” … do you mean autotest exits in
both situations and doesn’t run any tests?

(I’m running autotest with RSpec 2 fine, BTW.)

You said in an earlier post that this happens whether you run this under
bundler or not. What, precisely, are the commands you’re using?

That is correct. No tests are run. Just get the OS command prompt
back.

under bundler bundle exec autotest standalone autotest both within
the project directory and there is a spec subdirectory with the spec
in them.

What happens when you run rspec spec?

What is in your spec_helper.rb file?

What is the output of find spec?

That’s all I can think of asking right now…

The helper file does not have anything in it as of right now. It had
the the old
#begin

require ‘spec’

#rescue LoadError

require ‘rubygems’ unless Config[‘NO_RUBYGEMS’]

gem ‘rspec’

require ‘spec’

#end
from rspec 1.3.0

Now it is empty. This project was generated via newgem.

I want to upgrade to rspec2 and ruby 1.9.2. Doing it in stages
currently 1.9.1.

I can’t find it, but I could swear there was a bug report about empty
spec files causing rspec to not output anything. Try putting some code
in there and see what happens.

put in
$:.unshift(File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/lib’)
require ‘reader’
and get the same thing

rspec spec works fine and provides test results.

#begin

require ‘spec’

#rescue LoadError

require ‘rubygems’ unless Config[‘NO_RUBYGEMS’]

gem ‘rspec’

There are lots of spec files. I can run them using rspec spec and
everything is great. just the autotest does not work.

I put in:

$:.unshift(File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/lib’)
require ‘reader’

and it still does nothing.

Did you create autotest/discover.rb?

yep: Autotest.add_discovery {“rspec2”}
in the base project directory

I’m at the point of asking “did you turn it off and on again?” :-/

Can you give your Ruby installation details? (versions etc, ideally the
output of rvm info and gem list and/or your Gemfile)

Not sure what you meant by “did you turn it off and on again?”

Ah, I just meant I was running out of ideas[1].

The other information is here:

All I can suggest is maybe updating RVM and trying in Ruby 1.9.2 with a
fresh gemset and bundle install?

Other than that I’m out of ideas…

I converted from rspec 1.3 to rspec 2

Thought that was what you meant, but did not want to leave anything
untried. I have updated to 1.9.2-rc2. same problem. I am going to
have to do an update to snow leopard soon, may try it and put new code
on not just restore.
