Rspec2 not working with shoulda

I am using rails edge. I am using gem “rspec-rails”, “= 2.0.0.beta.
19” .

I have following code at spec/models/user_spec.rb

require ‘spec_helper’

describe User do

it { should validate_presence_of(:email) }

it { should validate_presence_of(:name) }

end

Here is my gemfile

group :development, :test do
gem ‘factory_girl_rails’, :git => ‘git://github.com/thoughtbot/
factory_girl_rails’
gem ‘shoulda’
gem “rspec-rails”, “= 2.0.0.beta.19”
gem “cucumber-rails”, “= 0.3.2”
gem “capybara”
gem “launchy”
end

I am getting following error message.

Failure/Error: it { should validate_presence_of(:email) }
undefined method `validate_presence_of’ for
#<RSpec::Core::ExampleGroup::Nested_2:0x10a63e3a8 @__memoized={}>
# ./spec/models/user_spec.rb:5

Sounds like shoulda is not registering itself properly with rspec-2. I’d
check with the should list: http://groups.google.com/group/shoulda.

HTH,

Also - the subject line is backwards - it shoulda been “shoulda not
working with rspec-2” :wink:

It’s been a long time since I tried shoulda, but I used to like to give
the
advice, “you shoulda used RSpec instead.” :wink:

Hope you get everything working, Nadal.

I posted a question on shoulda forum. It is under moderation so I
don’t have a link yet.

To the people who do not use shoulda: How would you write a test for
above case. I assume it would require set up a subject, set nil value,
and then see if there is an error message. I still think that for such
cases should macro is succint and does it job well unless I am missing
some new feature of rspec2.

Thanks

I don’t yet use RSpec 2, but I don’t think you’re missing anything.
Shoulda
may very well be a good fit for these kinds of examples.

Since you asked, here’s how I currently write examples like the ones you
posted.

require ‘spec_helper’

describe User, “being valid” do
it “requires an email” do
user = User.new(:email => nil)
user.should_not be_valid
user.should have(1).error_on(:email)
end

it “requires a name” do
user = User.new(:name => nil)
user.should_not be_valid
user.should have(1).error_on(:name)
end
end

That’s exactly what I used to do, also, until I switched to Remarkable.
Now it’s:

     before :each do
         @user = User.create(valid_user_hash)
     end

     should_validate_presence_of :first_name
     should_validate_presence_of :last_name
     should_validate_presence_of :email
     should_validate_uniqueness_of :email, :case_sensitive => false
     should_validate_format_of_email

One thing I have come to appreciate about this is being able to copy the
should_* statements to my model and, using TextMate’s column editing
mode, remove the ‘should_’ and add an ‘s’ at the end of ‘validate’ and
I’m done. For all of the validations that Remarkable supports, the same
options are supported as well. That’s actually why I switch from Shoulda
to Remarkable a year or so ago (things might have changed in Shoulda by
now, though): Not all validation options were supported in Shoulda.

Peace,
Phillip
