Problems running RSpec from w/in TextMate

Hello everyone, I’m new to RSpec, and pretty much Ruby in general. I am
trying to run RSpec from within TextMate to get the nice-looking GUI
that lists my specs and whatnot. It runs fine from the command line,
but when I run it from TextMate, I get the following error (I am working
with a Rails application):

RubyMate r8136 running Ruby r1.8.6 (/usr/local/bin/ruby)

event_spec.rb

/Users/waynemolina/work/liberty_truth/vendor/plugins/rspec/lib/spec/runner/options.rb:195:in

RuntimeError: File or directory not found: [,

I don’t know how to fix this… I have tried to search Google but I can’t
find anything that deals with it or how to fix it. I am using RSpec
1.1.3 - this is confirmed via gem list rspec. I’ve also installed the
latest RSpec tmbundle, just to be on the safe side.

It’s not a big deal, since as I said it works from the command line, but
I would rather not switch out of TextMate so I’m really hoping that
someone can give me some pointers on how to fix this error, since my own
searches are turning up empty.

Thanks to anyone who can offer some advice!

Actually, that is on the dangerous side. If you are using rspec 1.1.3,
you should use the TextMate bundle from the same release. Try grabbing
that and see if it works.

I also had problems with running RSpec from within TextMate where
sometimes it would work and sometimes it would fail repeatedly and
finally found my problem. At the bottom of the TextMate window look
at the status line in the second box to see what type of file TextMate
has the file set as. If it’s not “RSpec” then click on it and change
it to “RSpec” and try running the test again.

If it’s not set to RSpec then it may be trying to just run the file as
a Ruby script, which doesn’t work from within TextMate. When using
the RSpec TextMate bundle the window that opens when you run Command-R
should be titled “Run Examples”. If it just says “Run” then the file
type probably isn’t set to RSpec.

Hope that helps!

Okay the issue seems to have been that it wasn’t set to RSpec but Ruby
on Rails. Changing it to RSpec seems to fix it… silly me, I guess :slight_smile:

Same problem (and solution) for me, but …

when I’m in a spec file and switch to RSpec then switch to a non-spec
.rb
file it says “Ruby”. When I switch it to “Ruby on Rails” and then go
back
to a spec file it says “Ruby on Rails” instead of RSpec.

So is there some trick to getting *_spec.rb files to be RSpec and other
*.rb
files to be Ruby on Rails?
