Feature: define matcher
In order to express my domain clearly in my code examples
As an RSpec user
I want a shortcut to define custom matchers
Scenario: define a matcher with default messages
Given a file named "matcher_with_default_message_spec.rb" with:
"""
Spec::Matchers.define :be_a_multiple_of do |expected|
match do |actual|
actual % expected == 0
end
end
describe 9 do
it {should be_a_multiple_of(3)}
end
describe 9 do
it {should_not be_a_multiple_of(4)}
end
# fail intentionally to generate expected output
describe 9 do
it {should be_a_multiple_of(4)}
end
# fail intentionally to generate expected output
describe 9 do
it {should_not be_a_multiple_of(3)}
end
"""
When I run "spec matcher_with_default_message_spec.rb --format specdoc"
Then the exit code should be 256
And the stdout should match "should be a multiple of 3"
And the stdout should match "should not be a multiple of 4"
And the stdout should match "should be a multiple of 4 (FAILED - 1)"
And the stdout should match "should not be a multiple of 3 (FAILED - 2)"
And the stdout should match "4 examples, 2 failures"
And the stdout should match "expected 9 to be a multiple of 4"
And the stdout should match "expected 9 not to be a multiple of 3"
Scenario: overriding the failure_message_for_should
