Cucumber and matcher


#1

Hi,

Is there way to generate a better error messages when I have a matcher
in my step like

1.should == 0 => would fail with expected 1, got 0

I would like to add more details to that error? Especially , in my
case ,I am using the include? matcher.

Thanks

Emmanuel

Check out rolling your own simple matcher:

It can be done in only a few lines!

Or the new Matcher DSL - simple matcher even simpler!

Thanks David!

I will try the new matcher after I migrate to rspec 1.2.x :slight_smile: But
seems a lot easier to create . Really liking it!
