Updated to latest gems, rspec not catching flash.now


#1

Hi, after an update to all the latest gems, I have a controller spec
failing
that wasn’t previously:
flash[:alert].should eql( “Blah blah.” )**

The flash is being set by “flash.now[:alert] = ‘…’” in this instance.
Can anyone suggest how I can make this work again?
Cheers,
Doug.

I just submitted a patch to ticket #11834 to resolve this issue in
rspec-rails:

https://rspec.lighthouseapp.com/projects/5645-rspec/tickets/98-11834-fake-controller-flash-object#ticket-98-9

In the mean time you can manually patch your local rspec-rails (if you
unpack rspec and rspec-rails into vendor/gems or vendor/plugins this
should work fine). Or you can do Xavier suggests on that ticket and
add a few lines to your spec_helper, until rspec-rails is updated.

HTH,

Cheers,
Doug.
