I’ve tried using the autotest file from RSpec 2 (lib/autotest/rspec2.rb)
but I’ve found a problem with it, that I think is a bug.
The file contains two sections
- an Autotest
- an Autotest class “Autotest::Rspec2”
In one project I’m working on, the code in Autotest::Rspec2 is really
useful to me, but the :initialize hook contains setup that interferes
with my project structure (I don’t want a “lib” folder.
Unfortunately, it appears that Autotest’s
clear_mappings can’t stop
the :initialize mappings making it into the final setup. This means
that to use Autotest::Rspec2, I’ve had to copy-paste the contents into
my own autotest file, rather than subclassing.
Is this a bug? (ie, is there no workaround for the coupling between the
two blocks?) If so, can it be fixed?
Alternatively (or as well), is it time to drop autotest and use watchr
instead? I noticed RSpec 2 uses that, and it seems really fast and
simple, both of which go down very well with me…
