Jasmine does not currently support the asset pipeline, but there's a lovely gem called jasmine-rails that will give us this support. Used in conjunction with jasmine-headless-webkit, you can run your specs in Terminal, similar to
rspec rather than in the browser (and it's fast!).
First, lets add the necessary dependencies.
group :development, :test do gem 'jasmine-rails' gem 'jasmine-headless-webkit' end
Then remove the extra files it generates.
Because we're using the asset pipeline, we need to tell jasmine where our assets are.
At this point, jasmine should be working. Lets make a sanity test to check. Create a file in
describe "Sanity Check", -> it "demonstrates a successful test", -> expect(1).toEqual 1
jasmine-headless-webkit -c (that
-c is for color).
Running Jasmine specs... . PASS: 1 test, 0 failures, 0.007 secs.
If you're using Lion, you'll likely get a message like...
Can't load, the file may be broken.
...in which case you'll want to load the gem directly from Github.
gem 'jasmine-headless-webkit', :git => https://github.com/johnbintz/jasmine-headless-webkit.git
In some cases you may even need to install from source. Don't worry, it's not hard!
git clone https://github.com/johnbintz/jasmine-headless-webkit.git cd jasmine-headless-webkit gem build jasmine-headless-webkit.gemspec gem install jasmine-headless-webkit.gem
