Speed up image processing of Paperclip in Acceptance Tests

Hi All,

I have a question here: How to Speed up image processing of Paperclip in
Acceptance Tests

When running capybara feature specs I can see lots of Slow factory
notices
which are populated byfactory_girl. These Slow factory things heavy slow
down the feature specs, I think, even feature specs are intrinsic slow
specs. Then I had some inspect and found out most of the Slow factory
was
caused bypaperclip. We had model using paperclip here:

FactoryGirl.define do
factory :asset do
image Rails.root.join(‘spec/fixtures/sample.jpg’).open
endend

So I wonder if there’s a way like test mode for paperclip to speed up
tests. I have simple solution here: Just copy the original file instead
of
actually crop it.

Wondering also, how many times do you test the same paths with this?
Maybe judicious use of before(:all) for some tests might speed things up
as well? Another though (not really knowing if this makes sense) if
your image is 1x1 pixels does it do anything? You really should not need
to test the actual image rendering bits more than once or twice in your
whole suite.
