Re: Getting RSpec 1.1.4+ to Work with Autotest (ZenTest 3.10.0) on Windows (Win32)

Hi,

Thanks for the info, Luis. I am glad that they fixed the calling a
batch file issue. I have had to handle this myself in several different
situations.

I do have one additional question. It sounds like your setup is very
similar to ours. Is your project new or did you upgrade? Do you run
autospec or autotest from the command line? It seems like running
autotest directly should still work given the history comment, but I
could not get things to fly until I started using autospec. Just
curious.

Thanks,
Chuck

so the autotest executable won’t automatically load rspec anymore. This
allows
rspec to live side by side other spec frameworks without always co-opting
autotest through autotest’s discovery mechanism.

Dunno if this funny, but I’m running right now with the exact same
combination of components and autotest picks my updated spec and files
(even the ones in lib).

autotest_cmd = “call #{autotest_cmd}” if RUBY_PLATFORM =~ /mswin/
system autotest_cmd

I have submitted a ticket requesting that autospec be updated accordingly.

http://rspec.lighthouseapp.com/projects/5645-rspec/tickets/466-update-autospec-to-work-on-windows

The upcoming version of Ruby (1.8.6 after patchlevel 114) will include
a fix for this issue, which I described in this post (less quirks for
us section):

So there is no need to prepend ‘call’ or “.bat” on Windows anymore
(also, you should consider mswin AND mingw as valid platforms :wink:

When we introduced autospec, we also changed the way rspec identifies
itself to autotest such that an ENV var must be present (which is set
by autospec) - so no, the autotest command won’t work.

Hmn, really?

But in any case, if you say that I should use script/autospec, then I
should :slight_smile:

Hmm. Well, it’s not supposed to work :slight_smile: We added autospec specifically
so that it wouldn’t. Check out
http://rspec.lighthouseapp.com/projects/5645/tickets/394 and
http://github.com/dchelimsky/rspec/commit/c12b4e0cdcae1309725eeee75ce85110b905f432.
Any reason that shouldn’t work on windows?

Besides because is Windows? :wink:
(just kidding)

There is no specific code there,

This are my .autotest and ~/.autotest contents:

http://pastie.org/private/chano8j5px7izztck0t6tw

One thing I noticed is that using script/autospec spec modifications
get picked, but after successfully run they do not try to do a full
run…
(try running the whole spec files).

On the other hand, autotest try run the modified specs and then run
a full check on all the specs (expected behavior).

This is the output from script/autospec:

http://pastie.org/private/bsbyyyppir7ica5moheqtg

Just checked that ENV[‘RSPEC’] get set using script/autotest (inside
.autotest)

puts ENV[‘RSPEC’]

Output:

loading autotest/rails_rspec
true

When called from autotest directly, I get:

loading autotest/rails_rspec
nil

Dunno if that helps.

I’m using Rails 2.1.0 (from gems), RSpec and RSpec rails latest
commits as plugins and ZenTest 3.10.0
