Utilizing Jasmine and taking full advantage of the Rails 3.1 asset pipeline. Jasminerice removes any excuse YOU have for not testing your out of control sprawl of CoffeeScript files. This project rocks and uses the MIT-LICENSE.
See guard-jasmine for details.
This is a gem specifically for Rails 3.1. Just include it in
group :development, :test do gem "jasminerice" end
The engine is automatically mounted into your application in the development and test environments. If you'd like to change that behavior, you can change which groups the gem is included in via the gemfile.
Optionally, you can run the installer
rails g jasminerice:install
This will add the required
spec.js.coffee together with a sample spec and
fixture to help get you started.
Create a file
This pulls in all your specs from the
As well you can use the
#require dependency mechanisms in your specs to
pull dependencies. Here's an example
#= require foo #= require bar describe "Foo", -> it "it is not bar", -> v = new Foo() expect(v.bar()).toEqual(false) describe "Bar", -> it "it is not foo", -> v = new Bar() expect(v.foo()).toEqual(false)
For including stylesheets in your specs, Jasminerice uses
Use Sprockets directives to include the right css files:
/* *= require application */
Jasminerice makes files located in the
as fixture. For example, a file
%h2 Test Fixture %p Using fixtures
is made available under the URL
/jasmine/fixtures/baz. Since Jasminerice automatically
makes a patched version of jasmine-jquery
available in your specs, you can load the
baz fixture in your spec with:
You can also load JSON fixtures, e.g.
You can declare Jasminerice::HelperMethods (perhaps put inside lib/) to make helpers available to jasminerice fixtures.
Now start your server
and there are your specs.
You can override your current environment's
config.assets.debug configuration per request
?debug=true to the jasmine path, eg.
Compatibility with Require.js
If you use Require.js in your project and need to load your
modules in your jasmine specs, there is an option to prevent jasminerice from automatically
executing the test runner before the modules are defined. This enables you to start the
execution manually whenever you want in your
#= require your/specs/and/other/stuff # at the end of this file add: jasmine.rice.autoExecute = false define 'jasmine.waitsfor.requirejs', -> require ['jasmine.waitsfor.requirejs'], -> jasmine.getEnv().execute()
The shown example defines a dummy module in require.js that is required immediately on the next line. This is a simple hack to wait until require.js has initialized all modules and start the jasmine runner after that.
Of course you can use
jasmine.rice.autoExecute = false also for all other cases where you need
to control when your specs should be executed!
