I’m using rspec for a Rails project and keep seeing the “assigns” method in
the “writing specs” portion of the documentation, yet I don’t see “assigns”
in the rdoc and I can’t seem to find an explicit definition what it does.
Would someone be able to tell me what exactly “assigns” does?
Assigns is a feature RSpec borrows from the regular Rails test/unit
In a controller spec, assigns[:blah] points at the @blah instance
Useful for setting expectations on what the controller will do with
Also, this is probably better suited for the RSpec mailing list.
