Do you remember RSpactor?

It took me a while to get the next release out, but I finally managed to
release RSpactor 0.9.16, a Mac OS X RSpec runner.

There are no new features but RSpactor should be a lot more stable and
responsive now. If you want to have a look and download:

Failing specs do show up as red, but passing ones show up as black in
the
lefthand drawer (though the “bar” is green in the main display pane) -
known
bug?

As a freaking idiot
I want to see an error message (at least in system.log!) when RSpactor
can’t
find “/usr/bin/spec”
So that I can remember I’m a freaking idiot

I’ve been using RSpactor (the gem version, not the GUI) fairly happily
for a
month or so. However, when trying the GUI version out, it became clear
that
RSpactor loads things differently than ‘rake spec’. Today, using the gem
version, I found that I get a MissingSourceFile trying to require json.
‘rake spec’ works fine.

So I’d suggest that RSpactor is not quite ready for primetime, in case
anyone’s thinking of using it.

No its not a bug. The lefthand drawer shows all your spec files. The
right, main view shows up the content of a specific file. I don’t
won’t passing files to be shown up as green because its distracting
colorful.

RSpactor loads things the same way as ‘rake spec’ does. The problem
comes from the environment RSpactor.app is running in.
I haven’t figured out yet how to change that…

You’re right RSpactor is not a final release, its a first beta. So if
you encounter problems please report them to the lighthouse project
http://rspactor.lighthouseapp.com or simply fork, fix, commit :slight_smile:
However, you can use RSpactor already for your daily work. I do, and a
lot of other people too.

I was talking about the gem version, not RSpactor.app.

I was using the gem version very happily for a month or more, until I
ran
into tests failing on RSpactor that passed with rake spec and autotest.

I think RSpactor has a lot of promise for Mac users and I wish the
project
luck. Unfortunately I don’t have the capacity to add another beta
project to
my plate, otherwise I’d try to be more helpful.

The runtime environment for OSX GUI apps is controlled by an (optional)
file
called ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist, which you can edit using the
Property
List Editor. Under the Root node you create key-value pairs like:
GEM_HOME
=> /Users/Dan/Library/gems.

Property List Editor won’t let you create a file in a hidden directory
(starting with a dot) so instead you can do this from a terminal window:

% mkdir ~/.MacOSX
% touch ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist
% open ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist
