Rails, rSpec and BDD


#1

I’ve decided that I want to use more automated tests because I’ve been
intrigued by the idea of BDD.

I am new to using tests, so I’m curious if there have been any writeup
on using rSpec.

This is one of the only ones I’ve found:

It seems that the benefit of BDD is that it makes it easier to use tests
in the intial design.
I guess I also like the languaging more.

Do the more experienced developer think it’s a mistake for me to explore
rSpec vs. just using the standard “assert_” type tests?

thanks,
Bryan

I myself am holding off on using BDD and RSPec until Steve solidifies
the
interface a bit more.

We’re rolling out a new release next week, with a new interface.

I’m adding a Rake task, and a Rails plugin at that time. Before the
end of the month, your Rails apps will have optional RSpec love. Try
not to get any on your clothes.
