How to use rspec_scaffold generator with latest rspec gem

Hi,

I am a newbie to Rails 3 and Rspec. Kindly excuse my being a novice.

I am trying to use RSpec with Rails 3. I am using rails 3.0.3 and ruby
1.9.2 on ubuntu 10.04 os.

I am currently referring to the tutorial on :-
http://www.railsfire.com/article/rspec-behaviour-driven-development-testing-framework.
This tutorial not only uses old plugins , but old Rails version of 2.x
also.

I am unable to use the old rspec generator ( rspec_scaffold ) with rspec
2.5 and rspec-rails 2.5 gem. As expected I get the following error as
given below.

[email protected]:~/rails_testing/10Mar11/rspec_demo3$ rails g

rspec_scaffold post title:string body:text
Could not find generator rspec_scaffold.
[email protected]:~/rails_testing/10Mar11/rspec_demo3$

Could you please tell me how should I give to accordingly for it to work
for me using the above RoR configuration.

Thanks

rails generate rspec:install
rails generate scaffold

In Rails 3, once you run the rspec:install generator, the Rails
generators delegate out to rspec-rails to generate the spec files.

Hi Mohnish,

The rails generator script will produce a list of it’s generators if
you simply type ‘rails g’ you can get further assistance by typing
‘rails g generator --help’ such as ‘rails g scaffold --help’ I
suspect that you are wanting to generate a scaffold with all of the
rspec tests as well, because rails 3 went modular you no longer need a
special command to get rspec tests, simply by installing the gem and
including it in both :development and :test environments in your
Gemfile, your scaffold generator will automatically produce rspec
tests for you. First check to make sure the rspec:install generator
is listed under ‘rails g’ and that you have run that generator first,
then you can ‘rails g scaffold’ and the model/controller/views and
necessary specs will be generated.

Rspec 2 docs are a bit of a work in progress at the moment as I
understand it but there is much to be gleaned from referencing
http://relishapp.com/rspec before you email the list. Specifically
the rspec-rails section.

Hope that helps,
Cole

Hi Cole,

Hi David,

Thank you very much for you reply, I now understand that this isn’t
needed anymore with Rails 3. I had in another post on the same forum
mentioned about one of your blogs:-

http://blog.davidchelimsky.net/2007/05/14/an-introduction-to-rspec-part-i/.

I am unable to find Part 2 of your tutorial. Could you please tell me
where could I find the same.

Thanks again…:slight_smile:
