Rspec2: autotest keeps rerunning failing tests

Since my update to beta.20 i have this weird thing.
Normally i develop with autotest on, and when i get an error: i can
check the errors, and they are rerun when i save the files.

If all my tests pass this is still the current behaviour, but if i
have failing tests, autotest will keep running those tests.
I am afraid i find that kind of annoying :slight_smile:

I am not sure what could cause this.

In my autotest/discover.rb i have the following lines:

Autotest.add_discovery { “rails” }
Autotest.add_discovery { “rspec2” }

Is there a way to get the old behaviour back? (tests are only rerun
when files have changed)

I can’t explain why it suddenly did not work anymore, but i read
http://gist.github.com/365816
and the only thing i needed to do to make it work was adding the
following dependencies to my gemfile:

gem “autotest”
gem “autotest-rails”

The gem autotest-rails was already installed on my system. So can’t
explain why, but now it works.
There, i fixed it :slight_smile:

hmmmm… adding autotest-rails did not fix it for me.

Following the instructions in the README, I still have this problem.
Downgrading to RSpec beta 19 fixes it.

Justin - are you experiencing the same problem?

Please take a look at the Autotest section in the README on
http://github.com/rspec/rspec-rails. That explains what’s been working
for me. Let me know whether or not it works for you as well.

Cheers,
David

Woops, sorry about not posting at the bottom.

Same here!

I spoke too soon. Adding “autotest-rails” did not solve my problems
either.
Trying “bundle exec autotest” also did not help.

I have been trying to use watchr, which seems faster, but when i save
multiple files at once, only one file is tested again.
But maybe i have to write a better wachtr script for that :slight_smile:

I will try to investigate the autotest-problem further if i can make
some time today.

Hi,

I tried many variations of gems in Gemfile, modifying options in
autotest/discover.rb, running with and without bundle exec but in the
end only backing off to 2.0.0.beta.19 stopped failing tests being
immediately re-run.

Looks like someone else discovered, reported, and is in the process of
trying to fix this:
