Radrails and RSpec

Hi all,

Does anyone know how to get radrails to use RSpec specs instead of
tests?

Cheers

Daniel,

Give a try to the simply_bdd plugin.
http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/simply_bdd/README

It makes using RSpec a lot easier: you run rspec code like normal
tests (see the example in the README page), and it works fine with
autotest.

Not shown in the README example is the need to use
require ‘spec’
to access the should_** magic.

Example:

file: test/unit/a_user_test.rb
require File.dirname(FILE) + ‘/…/test_helper’
require ‘spec’

context “A User with no name” do
def setup
@user = User.new
end

 specify "should be invalid" do
   # assert [email protected]?        # std way
   @user.should_not_be_valid # rspec way
 end

end

Its best not to confuse Rick’s plugin with RSpec - they aren’t the same
and whilst simply bdd is neat, it doesn’t give you the full power of
RSpec (such as the should_ expectations).

Scratch that, didn’t read the above post properly.

If you want to use RadRails though, can’t you still just use the
console to run your tests?

Read my msg again, and the example I gave: it uses a should_*
expectation.

Thanx for the insight. I’ve been using simply_bdd for this but didn’t
even
think to require spec.

I’m not sure that I understand exactly what’s happening here though. If
I
require spec, which context method is being called? simply_bdd or
rpsec?
Does it make a difference?

Luke, I can use consle for testing, but I rather use it in RadRails when
I’m
developing there.

I guess bdd just reasonates with me, and I’d like to use it. It seems
that
requiring spec in the test files would give me the best of both worlds.
I
can use the should_** methods and normal assert* methods.

Thanx again for the pointers.

Cheers
Daniel
