In cucumber, I use tags in a very simple, yet helpful (to me) way: to
number my scenarios. For example:
Scenario: This is a scenario
Scenario: This is another scenario
Scenario: You get the idea
This allows me to focus in on a single scenario quite easily while I’m
working on it. Once I have that scenario working correctly, I will run
the entire feature to make sure nothing else is broken.
I’m finding that I’d like to do something quite similar in RSpec. For
example, when I’m working on a model spec, I generally have contexts for
what database fields should exist, what validations should exist, and
what associations should exist. When I am later adding a couple of
custom methods to do something, I’d like to be able to run the spec just
for what I’m presently working on. Is this possible?
