Sinatra::Spec is a class for describing Sinatra apps using MiniTest, the unit testing framework that ships with Ruby 1.9.


Via RubyGems:

$ sudo gem install sinatra-spec

From a local copy:

$ git clone git://
$ cd sinatra-session
$ rake package && sudo rake install


To use Sinatra::Spec simply use your Sinatra app as the description argument. Inside that describe block you have access to all the methods of Rack::Test. These methods will be called on a new instance of the app. See the testing page in the Sinatra user manual for an explanation of how to test your app using Rack::Test.

Here is an example:

describe MyApp do
  describe "GET /" do
    it "should return ok" do
      get "/"
      assert last_response.ok?
