Rspec : how to I do this?

Hello,

I have followed the rspec course on code-school.
Now I try to make it work on my own project.

Let’s say I have this model :

class message < ActiveRecord::Base
attr_accessible :bericht, :user
belongs_to :user
belongs_to :category
end

Now I try to make a test so I can verify that a message has a title and
a
body.

How can I do this ?

I would suggest you use the rspec generators to create a model or
scaffold and then use the generated tests as a guide.

(Seems like something that an “rspec course” would have covered…)

Thanks for the answer.
I will try to find out how this works. As far as I can find it this is
not
covered in this code school course.

Try railstutorial.org, which is free to use online. It gives a good
introduction to testing.

You can use the gem shoulda-matchers[1] to test it.

She works very well with rspec.

And it is very easy to test this.

With it you can test the attributes, calls from models and stuff …

You can use the gem-rails factory-girl, best to test the interactions,
writing less and being more efficient … :slight_smile:
