Trying to spec all models

When I do

script/spec -c -f n spec/models/**/*_spec.rb

I get

/Library/Ruby/Gems/1.8/gems/rspec-1.3.0/lib/spec/runner/options.rb:283:in
`files_to_load’:
File or directory not found: spec/models/**/*_spec.rb (RuntimeError)

Yet, if I go into irb and do

Dir.glob(‘spec/models/**/*_spec.rb’)

I get

[“spec/models/county_spec.rb”, “spec/models/county_user_spec.rb”,
“spec/models/message_county_spec.rb”, “spec/models/message_spec.rb”,
“spec/models/message_user_spec.rb”, “spec/models/postman_spec.rb”,
“spec/models/user_spec.rb”]

Does spec not glob? I’m working on a wrapper script and I’d like to be
able to run all specs of a given type (controller, model, view) by
passing a single switch (-c, -m, -v). It works when I have
subdirectories (as I do with controllers), but it isn’t working when I
don’t (as with models). The fact that glob picks up the files properly
got me wondering, so I thought I’d ask.

I could glob them myself and run them all individually, but then I
wouldn’t get the combined statistics at the end.

Peace,
Phillip

When running script/spec from the CLI the globbing rules will depend
on the shell. Try searching Google for “bash globbing” (or whatever
shell you’re using). But if all you need is to run all the model
specs, you could use “rake spec:models”. That works well for me.

Or just “script/spec spec/models”

Phillip, any updates on your efforts?

I am keenly interested in a Cucumber tags like facility for RSpec

Thanks for the replies. It’s not as simple as I just want to spec all
file = ARGV.at(0) if ARGV.size > 0

I’ll keep kicking it around. I’m confident a reasonable solution is not far
off.

FYI - there is an open issue on this:
http://github.com/rspec/rspec-core/issues#issue/37

I’m planning to add this to 2.1, but likely not before, as I don’t view
it as crucial to a 2.0 release, but I do view it as something we need to
take some time working on to get right.

Cheers,
David

Thanks for the replies. It’s not as simple as I just want to spec all
models. As I mentioned, I’m writing a wrapper script to automate some
things that I repeatedly find myself doing or wanting to do. I am trying
to do a very simple */ pattern when I don’t pass a pattern as an
argument. I don’t really want to have a conditional that says

rake spec:models unless pattern

when the rest of my code actually calls script/spec. David’s suggestion
might work though. Right now, I do

file = ARGV.at(0) if ARGV.size > 0
file = ‘**/*’ unless file
<some logic to determine what type of spec to run, which defines
filename_partial>
spec_path = “#{spec_path}/#{file}#{filename_partial}.rb”

file can be “user”, “admin/message”, “admin/", "/message”, or whatever
I need it to be. That’s why I’m looking for the easiest way to run all
of a given type. Eventually I’m going to add support for ~, like with
Cucumber tags, except for specs. I did this in a wrapper for Cucumber
features and it is working out well for me.

I’ll keep kicking it around. I’m confident a reasonable solution is not
far off.

My original message was misleading. I didn’t mean to imply that I was
working on adding support for tags to RSpec. Rather, when you invoke
cucumber on the command line, you
can exclude tags by prepending a tilde (~). When I originally posted
that question, I was working on the ability to pass in patterns to
include or exclude. As a simple example,
suppose I wanted to run all admin controller specs except those having
to do with messaging, I would use

-c admin/* ~message

But this hasn’t shown itself to be very important after all. In fact, I
actually forgot that I had wanted to do it.

Though I haven’t been closely following RSpec 2, I think it’s going to
have
tags much like Cucumber.

Thanks David and Phillip.

Phillip, I was reading about RSpec 2?'s filter capabilities and it
seemed that you were working on a wrapper to dynamically adding a
configure block when the wrapper was passed an option.

David, I see the work in 2.1 for this and it is just what I need. I
want to turn off some describe blocks (via some sort of exclusion
filter) normally, but optionally turn them on.

First, I have to determine if (exclusion) filters applies to 1.3.0.
And if they do, then I might try something like this:

RSpec.configure do |c|
c.exclusion_filter = {
:if => lambda {|what|
case what
when :dont_run
ENV[‘EXCLUDE’] == ‘true’
end
}
}
end

then to invoke:

bin/rake spec EXCLUDE=true

Ed
