How to install

Install this sunspot_test from rubygems either directly:

gem install sunspot_test

Or through bundler

# in Gemfile
gem "sunspot_test"

What does it do?

This gem will automatically start and stop solr for cucumber tests when using the @search tag. For instance, if you have a searchable book model this will allow you to create/query/destroy books.

Feature: Books

  Scenario: Searching for a book
    Given a book exists with a title of "Of Mice and Men"

Starting solr will depend on your settings in config/sunspot.yml. If you run into issues remember to look for existing java processes, starting solr may conflict with existing instances. You can also check out which contains a little more information.

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.

  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.

  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.

  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)

  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
