Rspec matcher for asserting that this appears_before(that) in rspec request specs


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'orderly'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install orderly


In an rspec request spec, do

this.should appear_before(that)
# or
expect(this).to appear_before(that)

or, to assert that something does not appear before

this.should_not appear_before(that)
# or
expect(this).to_not appear_before(that)

Error handling in place for cases where this or that does not appear on the page.
