A WebKit RSpec Formatter

deveiate.org/webkit-rspec-formatter.html

Description

This is a formatter for RSpec 2 that takes advantage of features in WebKit to make the output from RSpec in Textmate more fun.

Test output looks like this:

Installation

To get started, install the `rspec-formatter-webkit` gem:

$ gem install rspec-formatter-webkit

Usage

If you're running specs in Textmate 2 via the RSpec bundle, include these in your .tm_properties file:

TM_RSPEC_OPTS      = '-rrspec/core/formatters/webkit'
TM_RSPEC_FORMATTER = 'RSpec::Core::Formatters::WebKit'

To do the same in TextMate 1, open the 'Advanced' Preferences and adding the same variables there:

That's it!

Logging Output

If you have some kind of log output that you'd like to show up underneath the example, you can append lines of HTML to the logger-output thread-local variable and they'll be inserted into a div under the example line that can be toggled open and closed by clicking the example line:

Thread.current['logger-output'] << %{<p>Some stuff happened.</p>}

Each line that has such logging appended will appear with an asterisk after it in the output.

Loggability

If you're using Loggability for logging, the WebKit formatter has CSS rules for the output of its HTML formatter, and includes a helper for injecting the logs generated for an example into the output. Just include the Loggability spec helper in your RSpec config:

require 'rspec'
require 'loggability/spechelpers'

RSpec.configure do |config|
    config.include( Loggability::SpecHelpers )
end

Miscellaneous

This formatter is also usable anywhere else the standard HTML formatter is, of course. Also, while it's specifically intended to be used under the Textmate HTML viewer that the RSpec bundle uses, the output should work fine under recent Gecko/Firefox-based viewers, as well.

Patches/suggestions welcomed.
