New syntax question and mocking HTTP_AUTHORIZATION

I am specing a sinatra app.

it “should send non-valid user to /login” do
get ‘/’
last_response.headers[‘Location’].should == ‘/reports’
end

this is working fine but I would like to know how to convert it to the
new syntax or if there is a better way to do that.

before(:each) { get ‘/’ }
subject { last_response }

its(:status) {should == 302}
require ‘ap’
its(:headers) {should include(’/login’)}

another question:

it “should send valid user to /reports” do
get ‘/’, { ‘HTTP_AUTHORIZATION’ => ‘Basic
c2cvbGFuOmFBITExMQ==’ }
last_response.headers[‘Location’].should == ‘/reports’
end

when i debug my method I see that request.env[“HTTP_AUTHORIZATION”] is
nil,
so the header was not sent with it. how to mock it?

Thanks

This is not “the new syntax.” It is simply an alternate syntax that has
been around for over a year and works well for a small subset of things
you might want to specify like initial state:

describe Array do
context “when first created” do
subject { Array.new }
its(:length) { should eq(0) }
end
end

It is not in any way an all-purpose replacement for more specifying
behaviour.

so the header was not sent with it. how to mock it?
I don’t have any personal experience w/ Sinatra yet (I know, I know, but
there are only so many hours in a day), so I’ll leave it to someone else
to comment on how to approach the Sinatra questions.

Cheers,

I think you are passing your headers in as the request params. I believe
you’re using rack-test under the covers and the api for #get is:

  get(uri, params = {}, env = {}, &block)

I think env is where you want your headers. so maybe:

  get '/', {}, { 'HTTP_AUTHORIZATION' => 'Basic 

c2cvbGFuOmFBITExMQ==’ }

I haven’t written a Sinatra app in a while, but I hope this helps,

works! thanks so much for not only solving it but also mentioning rack-
test.
I see the get method here:
http://github.com/brynary/rack-test/blob/master/lib/rack/test.rb

but it’s not clear how to use that (I guess it depends on your
experience), I wish there was a usage/sample section…
