I am following the directions for setting up autotest (
and experienced an error when I run rake spec:server:start.
$ rake spec:server:start
Starting up spec_server …
uninitialized constant Rails (NameError)
from script/spec_server:21:in `require’
I took a quick look at the code in script/spec_server.rb. In short, it
appears that the script requires ‘spec/rails/spec_server’ before the
environment is loaded which happens on line 26. I moved the require of
‘spec/rails/spec_server’ after the Rails environment load. This appears
have fixed this issue.
So, my first question, has anyone else seen this problem? If not, can
anyone explain how the Rails constant should be available before the
environment is loaded?
