Another way to run your Screw.Unit tests.


To build the gem, run this:

gemify -I

View the CI build


Still really early. To try it, run this:

./bin/screwdriver spec/fixtures/suite.html

You can specify a browser like so:

screwdriver spec/fixtures/suite.html —browser Safari

By default, Screw.Driver uses Firefox.

If you don’t want the server to automatically quit after
your suite runs, you can use the “—server” option:

screwdriver spec/fixtures/suite.html —server

Screw.Driver will generate urls for each of the external
scripts and CSS links you include in your suite.html file,
and will serve them from the directory that contains the
suite.html file.

To specify additional load paths for your JavaScripts, you can
use the “—load-paths” option:

screwdriver spec/fixtures/suite.html —load-paths src/

Using with Rails

If you’re using Rails, run screwdriver from the root directory
of your app, and specify the “—rails” option. This will cause
the Screw.Driver server to serve the JavaScript files in your
public/javascripts directory. Example:

screwdriver spec/fixtures/suite.html —rails

- sinatra
- hpricot
- gemify (to build)

- Inject base tag into DOM at Hpricot parsing stage
- Convert script src attributes to absolute paths at Hpricot parsing stage
- Don’t kill all Firefox tabs when complete
- Use #load_paths for Rails functionality

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
