NO NAME (Because of --dry-run) output

I’m just getting started with rspec, I’m running on edge for both. In
a fresh project, I freeze edge, install the edge rspec plugin. I
generate a simple rspec_model and run the spec. It passes. When I
run rake spec:doc, I get the following output: - NO NAME (Because of
–dry-run) where the specification should be. In fact if I just make
a pending spec, it does the same.

I’ve tracked it down to something in ‘spec/rails’ because if I comment
that out and add the class declaration directly in the spec file it
works as it’s supposed to.

Has anyone seen this behavior before?

There is an auto-generation feature that let’s you do this:

specify { something.should be_something }

which would produce output:

  • should be something

The thing is that it relies on actually running the examples, which
spec:doc does not do.

If you’re trying to run the specs so they produce the specdoc output, do
this:

script/spec spec -fs

That will run the examples and produce the output.

Somewhat off topic, but I ran into this the other day when I was
trying to override that rake task to create the specdoc in text &
html. Just wondering - how would I override that rake task? I’ve
seen this before:

Task::TASKS[“spec:doc”] = nil

But it no longer seems to work with newer versions of rake (i.e. the
ones which have namespaces)

I’m running rspec and rspec_on_rails trunk(r2717), and am getting this,
except my “its” have string descriptions. One of my “describes” looks
like
this:

describe ‘Person trying to logon’ do
fixtures :users

it ‘with an invalid username should fail’ do
User.logon(‘harry’, ‘123456’).should be_nil
end

it ‘with an invalid password should fail’ do
User.logon(users(:admin).username, ‘’).should be_nil
end
end

If I’m understanding you correctly, since I have the strings, with
spec:doc
I should get output similar to:

Person trying to logon

  • with an invalid username should fail
  • with an invalid password should fail

But I’m just getting:

Person trying to logon

  • NO NAME (Because of --dry-run)
  • NO NAME (Because of --dry-run)

Further, I tried the script/spec -fs line mentioned, and get a rake
failure complaining of too few args:

script/spec spec -fs
script/spec:4:in `run’: wrong number of arguments (5 for 1)
(ArgumentError)
from script/spec:4

Thanks,
Steve

Try svn up, and rerunning script/generate rspec. This should solve
the second problem (unless this is a bug, again).
