story-helper

http://github.com/jtrupiano/story-helper

DESCRIPTION

Provides very basic baseline for using direct Ruby to define your test data and test accessors. Still a work in progress,
but something we use at SLS in lieu of fixtures. More details to come as this becomes more useful to others.

There’s some information on the wiki regarding how to use it in conjunction with fixtures.

FEATURES/PROBLEMS

  • not entirely DRY (requires you to define your accessors in addition to your test data — this should be able to be automated)
  • could auto-convert existing fixtures
  • should only be used in conjunction with pre-built test databases (in other words, no dropping and recreating for each test case — use DB transactions instead)

SYNOPSIS

from RAILS_ROOT

  • storify .

Implement StoryHelper#purge_all_data and StoryHelper#load_all in lib/story_helper.rb

  • rake db:stories:load RAILS_ENV=____

REQUIREMENTS

  • FIX (list of requirements)

INSTALL

  • sudo gem install story-helper (stable version from RubyForge)
  • sudo gem install jtrupiano-story-helper (HEAD of the repo from github)
