Is there an easy way to inject each example text into test.log

This was asked back in 2008 but I’m wondering if there is an easier way
with rspec2 and rails. Seems like it would make my test log much more
meaningful. Surely somebody must have done it.

Is there an easy way to inject each example text into test.log so I
can isolate the log output per example?

Thanks

Do you need the full source code of an example in the log output, or
just a description?

Just the description would be good so I can match up the log entries to
the spec

RSpec.configure do |c|

c.before do |m|
Rails.logger.debug “==> #{m.example.full_description}”
end

end

Cheers

That worked a treat

Thanks

That won’t work if you use one liners (it { should do_something })
because the full_description isn’t generated until after the example
runs.

You could do it in an after hook instead. I’d also include the
location information so you can get right to the example if you need to:

RSpec.configure do |c|
c.after do |m|
Rails.logger.debug “=== ^^ #{m.example.full_description} ^^ ===”
Rails.logger.debug “=== ^^ #{m.example.location} ^^ ===”
end
end

end

I’m thinking this might be an interesting use case for a custom
formatter.
