Testing email w/ cucumber


#1

Dear all,

Wanted to let people know that Ben M. has an excellent little plugin
here: http://github.com/bmabey/email-spec/tree/master

For testing e-mail.

Aaron Gibralter made some additions as well here:

I made some further changes here:

With my current version, you can do stories like below. Obviously you
wouldn’t use all of those steps, but I wanted to show what is possible.

Scenario: A new person signs up
Given I am at “/”
And a clear email queue
When I fill in “Email” with “removed_email_address@domain.invalid”
And I fill in “Password” with “monkey”
And I fill in “Password confirmation” with “monkey”
And I press “Sign up”
Then “removed_email_address@domain.invalid” should receive 1 email
And “removed_email_address@domain.invalid” should have 1 email
And “removed_email_address@domain.invalid” should not receive an email
When I open the email
Then I should see “confirm” in the email
And I should see “Account confirmation” in the subject
When I follow “confirm” in the email
Then I should see “Confirm your new account”

Best,

M

Wow, github rocks! I just threw that up there so for Aaron to see since
it was slightly too big for a pastie/gist… And now their are two forks
of it!
I’ll pull from both of you guys now, thanks for sharing.
