WatirSplash 1.0.0 Released


I’m happy to announce that WatirSplash 1.0.0 [1] got finally released.
The main thing which is new when using 1.0.0 is RSpec 2 usage and no
need to install ImageMagick and RMagick.

Project generators got also revamped.

Install it with gem install watirsplash and then execute
watirsplash new in your web application project directory!

Check out the Wiki [2] for more information.


  • using RSpec 2
    • if you have projects using WatirSplash <= 0.2.14 then execute
      watirsplash migrate under ui-test and ui-test-common directories!
  • removed Watir::WaitHelper - use Watir’s waiting methods instead
  • using Watir 1.7.1
  • use WATIRSPLASH_RESULTS_PATH environment variable for specifying
    custom spec results location
