Is there a way to generate spec for existing controllers?


#1

Hi list,

We just start using RSpec and rspec_on_rails for a existing Rails
project.
After run script/generate rspec. It only generate the structure
folders.
We’ve got quite a few controllers and models. I wonder is it a way to
auto-generate specs for them.

Many thanks

ty

Nope. Sorry.

No unit tests, right?

Nope. Sorry.

Ask your goal-donor what feature they’d like to see in a spec.

That is the point of specs - writing verbiage that a “product manager”
or
“business analyst” can review.

I fully agree.
For views though, there is http://github.com/hashrocket/view_specify/

Haven’t tried it, and never will :).

I think you’re referring to business specs, and I think ty is asking
about developer specs. You probably meant to refer him to writing
features, no?
