Documentation & Usage


  1. Fork it
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Write your code and unit tests
  4. Ensure all tests still pass (bundle exec rspec)
  5. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Add some feature')
  6. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  7. Create new pull request


The spec suite is a work in progress. Existing specs can either be run using guard or rake.


$ bundle exec guard


$ rake spec

We use VCR to stub out and save http interactions. Cassettes are not stored in the repo. They are generated the first time the spec suite is run and stored in spec/cassettes. To clear them and regenerate:

$ rm -rf spec/cassettes


All issues should be documented at balanced-ruby/issues



To render executable files from scenario templates run rake render_executables Check /scenarios and make sure each scenario has an executable.rb file


To delete previously generated executable files run rake delete_executables


After generating executable files, make sure they are valid Ruby files by running rspec scenarios/execute.rb from the root directory
