Something like tags in cucumber

In cucumber, I use tags in a very simple, yet helpful (to me) way: to
number my scenarios. For example:

@1

Scenario: This is a scenario

@2

Scenario: This is another scenario

@3

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?

Peace,
Phillip

Not yet, but it will be in rspec-2. Internal syntax will be different,
but we’ll try to make the CLI work like cuke’s.

Looking forward to it!

Thanks,
