Rack::Test

Description

Rack::Test is a small, simple testing API for Rack apps. It can be used on its own or as a reusable starting point for Web frameworks and testing libraries to build on. Most of its initial functionality is an extraction of Merb 1.0's request helpers feature.

Features

  • Maintains a cookie jar across requests

  • Easily follow redirects when desired

  • Set request headers to be used by all subsequent requests

  • Small footprint. Approximately 200 LOC

Example

require "rack/test"

class HomepageTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
  include Rack::Test::Methods

  def app
    MyApp.new
  end

  def test_redirect_logged_in_users_to_dashboard
    authorize "bryan", "secret"
    get "/"
    follow_redirect!

    assert_equal "http://example.org/redirected", last_request.url
    assert last_response.ok?
  end

end

Install

To install the latest release as a gem:

sudo gem install rack-test
