This gem allows you to "turn on" solr for certain portions of your tests. For the code that does not use solr, you would want to "stub" sunspot to avoid unneeded indexing.
Here is an example RSpec 2 spec_helper.rb:
$original_sunspot_session = Sunspot.session RSpec.configure do |config| config.mock_with :rspec config.before do Sunspot.session = Sunspot::Rails::StubSessionProxy.new($original_sunspot_session) end config.before :solr => true do Sunspot::Rails::Tester.start_original_sunspot_session Sunspot.session = $original_sunspot_session Sunspot.remove_all! end end
Let's go through what the above code does.
$original_sunspot_sessionstores the original sunspot session. By default, sunspot_rails uses the
In the first
beforeblock, we set the session to a stub session for every example.
Sunspot::Rails::StubSessionProxyis just a dummy class that skips indexing.
In the second
beforeblock, we use RSpec 2's metadata feature by adding
:solr => true. Any example or example group with this metadata will run the original sunspot session.
Sunspot::Rails::Tester.start_original_sunspot_sessionstarts the solr instance if it's not running.
Here is an example spec that utilizes sunspot-rails-tester:
require 'spec_helper' describe 'search page' do it 'highlights the active tab in the navigation' do # uses the stub session end it 'finds and displays a person', :solr => true do # uses actual solr - indexing will happen end end
