State of autospec/test and Rails 3

Hi all,

David, before I begin, thanks for your hard work :slight_smile:

I saw a thread or a blog post, I think it was on your site David, that
Autotest is not working with Rails at the moment, circa beta4.

Has that since changed? If not, anything I can do to help?

At least on beta6 it still seems to be failing with:

$ autotest
loading autotest/rails
/Users/mikel/.rvm/gems/[email protected]/gems/ZenTest-4.3.1/lib/autotest.rb:181:in
load': no such file to load -- ./.autotest (LoadError) from /Users/mikel/.rvm/gems/[email protected]/gems/ZenTest-4.3.1/lib/autotest.rb:181:ininitialize’

from
/Users/mikel/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.8.7-p24[email protected]/gems/ZenTest-4.3.1/bin/autotest:55

relevant gem list:

autotest-rails (4.1.0)
rspec-core (2.0.0.beta.6)
rspec-expectations (2.0.0.beta.6)
rspec-mocks (2.0.0.beta.6)
ZenTest (4.3.1)

Autotest file:

$ cat .autotest/discover.rb
Autotest.add_discovery { “rspec2” }

Hi Mikel,

I’m having success with it. Take a look at http://gist.github.com/365816

  • anything you’re missing there?

Cheers,
David

Hi David,

Two things I had wrong:

  1. I wasn’t installing autotest as a gem
  2. I was installing rspec-rails from git instead of from a gem
  3. I had ./.autotest/discover.rb instead of ./autotest/discover.rb

I blame it on a late night :slight_smile:

One thing though, running rspec-rails from :git would not run, giving:

$ autotest
loading autotest/rails_rspec2
Error loading Autotest style autotest/rails_rspec2 (no such file to load
– autotest/rails_rspec2). Aborting.

Changing the Gemfile to use “>= 2.0.0.beta” fixed it.

Thanks :slight_smile:

Mikel
