capybara-screenshot gem

Using this gem, whenever a Capybara test in Cucumber, Rspec or Minitest fails, the HTML for the failed page and a screenshot (when using capybara-webkit or Selenium) is saved into $APPLICATION_ROOT/tmp/capybara.

This is a huge help when trying to diagnose a problem in your failing steps as you can view the source code and potentially how the page looked at the time of the failure.

Usage

gem install capybara-screenshot

or update your Gemfile to include:

group :test do
  gem 'capybara-screenshot'
end

That's it!

Example application

A simple Rails 3.1 example application has been set up at https://github.com/mattheworiordan/capybara-screenshot-test-rails-3.1 Git clone the app, and then run Cucumber rake cucumber, RSpec rspec spec/**/*_spec.rb and Minitest rake test and expect intentional failures. Now check the $APPLICATION_ROOT/tmp/capybara folder for the automatic screen shots generated from failed tests.
