Overview

Capybara-UI (formerly called Dill) is a Capybara abstraction that makes it easy to define reuseable DOM "widgets", aka page objects, and introduces the concept of "roles" to allow you to easily organize your testing methods and widgets. Capybara-UI also introduces some helpers and syntactic sugar to make your testing even easier.

Before Capybara-UI

feature 'Admin new user page' do
  it 'should be able to create a new user' do
    visit('/users/new')

    within(:css, "#new_user") do
      fill_in('Name', :with => 'Example Name')
      fill_in('Password', :with => 'Password')
      select('Blue', :from => 'Favorite Color')
      click_button('Submit')
    end

    within(:css, '.alert-success') do
      expect(page).to have_content('Example Name')
    end
  end
end

After Capybara-UI

feature 'Admin new user page' do
  let(:role) { roles.admin }

  it 'should be able to create a new user' do
    role.navigate_to_new_user
    role.create_user(name: 'Example Name', password: 'Password', color: 'Blue')

    expect(role).to see :successfully_created_user, 'Example Name'
  end
end
