Tests Not Detected, Says 0 Examples

Hi,

I’m trying to get tests running on a gem I forked on github. When I try
to run tests, it says “0 examples”, despite lots of tests in the /spec
directory. Here is some pertinent information:

Code at: http://github.com/dissolved/yahoo_stock
RSpec version 2.0.1

Some examples:

01:05:43 [xenon:~/Development/ruby/yahoo_stock]
[[email protected]] master $ rspec spec

Finished in 0.00005 seconds
0 examples, 0 failures

01:09:03 [xenon:~/Development/ruby/yahoo_stock]
[[email protected]] master $ rspec spec/yahoo_stock/history_spec.rb

Finished in 0.00004 seconds
0 examples, 0 failures

I’ve got an email out to the primary developer of the original gem, but
think I may be having a more general problem. The readme for the project
does say to use ‘rake spec’ using RSpec 1.2.2, but that yields a “No
Rakefile found” error.

What am I missing here?

Thanks for any help!

Hey,

I second that, exactly the same happened to me today while trying to
run the spec’s for the simple-navigation gem.

Manuel-Korfmanns-MacBook-Pro:simple-navigation mkorfmann$ rspec spec/
Finished in 0.00005 seconds
0 examples, 0 failures

<< version information >>

Manuel-Korfmanns-MacBook-Pro:simple-navigation mkorfmann$ which rspec
/Users/mkorfmann/.rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.2-head/bin/rspec
Manuel-Korfmanns-MacBook-Pro:simple-navigation mkorfmann$ rspec -v
2.0.0
Manuel-Korfmanns-MacBook-Pro:simple-navigation mkorfmann$

Best regards,

Manuel

RSpec-2 is nearly 100% backward compatible when it comes to how specs
are structured, matchers, etc, but there are changes to important pieces
that could lead to what your seeing. For example the top level directory
is ‘rspec’ instead of ‘spec’, so if the spec_helper in the app says
“require ‘spec’”, then things are likely to fall apart.

I’d stick with rspec-1.2.2 if that’s what the project says works.

In terms of the “No Rakefile found” error, that comes directly from
rake, so if there is a Rakefile in the directory you’re calling “rake
spec” in, then I’m at a loss. Anybody else have any insights?
