rspec-rerun

Build Status

The rspec-rerun gem is a drop-in solution to retry (rerun) failed RSpec examples. It may be useful, for example, with finicky Capybara tests. The strategy to rerun failed specs is to output a file called rspec.failures that contains a list of failed examples and to feed that file back to RSpec via -e.

Usage

Add rspec-rerun to Gemfile in the :development and :test groups.

group :development, :test do
  gem "rspec-rerun"
end

Require rspec-rerun and change the default task in Rakefile.

require 'rspec-rerun'
task :default => "rspec-rerun:spec"

Run rake or rake rspec-rerun:spec. Failed examples will be rerun automatically.

It might also be a good idea to add rspec.failures to .gitignore.

History

Rerunning failed specs has been a long requested feature #456 in RSpec. A viable approach was suggested in #596. The infrastructure from that pull request was merged and released with rspec-core 2.11, which enabled re-running specs outside of RSpec, as described in our blog post. This gem has evolved from it.
