Upgrade to 1.2.7

What's changed

spec_server is deprecated

spec_server is deprecated in favor of Tim Harper's new spork library (github.com/timcharper/spork). Get it. Use it. Love it.

gem install spork

Upgrade to 1.2.0-1.2.6

What's changed

Supported Rails Versions

This release supports the following versions of rails:

  • 2.0.5

  • 2.1.2

  • 2.2.2

  • 2.3.2

update generated files

Be sure to run “script/generate rspec” and allow the following files to be overwritten:

  • lib/tasks/rspec.rake

  • script/spec

  • script/spec_server

controller.use_rails_error_handling! is deprecated

Use rescue_action_in_public! instead. It comes directly from rails and does exactly the same thing

route_for

After a change to edge rails broke our monkey-patched route_for method, I decided to just delegate to rails' assert_generates method. For most cases, this will not present a problem, but for some it might. You'll know if you upgrade and see any newly failing, route-related examples. Here are the things that you might need to change.

Make sure IDs are strings

If you had :id => 1 before, you need to change that to :id => “1”

#old
route_for(:controller => 'things', :action => 'show', :id => 1).should == "/things/1"

#new
route_for(:controller => 'things', :action => 'show', :id => "1").should == "/things/1"

Convert paths for non-get methods to hashes

If you had an example with a route that requires post, put, or delete, you'll need to declare that explicitly.

#old
route_for(:controller => 'things', :action => 'create').should == "/things"

#new
route_for(:controller => 'things', :action => 'create').should == {:path => "/things", :method => :post}

Controller/template isolation

Even though controller specs do not render views by default (use integrate_views to get them to render views), the way this works has changed in this version.

It used to be that the view template need not even exist, but due to changes in rails it became much more difficult to manage that for all the different versions of rails that rspec-rails supports. So now the template must exist, but it still won't be rendered unless you declare integrate_views.

What's new

render no longer requires a path

The render() method in view specs will infer the path from the first argument passed to describe().

describe "players/show" do
  it "does something" do
    render
    response.should have_tag("....")
  end
end

routing specs live in spec/routing

script/generate rspec_scaffold now generates its routing spec in spec/routing/.

bypass_rescue

Added a new bypass_rescue() declaration for controller specs. Use this when you want to specify that an error is raised by an action, even if that error is later captured by a rescue_from() declaration.

describe AccountController do
  describe "GET @account" do
    context "requested by anonymous user" do
      it "denies access" do
        bypass_rescue
        lambda do
          get :show, :id => "37"
        end.should raise_error(AccessDenied)
      end
    end
  end
end
