Guard::BDD

BDD guard is an opinionated RSpec and Cucumber runner.

I like to partition my test suite into 3 or 4 groups:

  • fast unit tests
  • slower integration tests for interfaces to external libraries or services
  • slow RSpec acceptance tests and/or slow Cucumber features

Whenever the test suite goes from red to green, I like my tests to be run in the order given above. As soon as one group of tests fails to run successfully, test execution stops.

Install

Install the gem:

$ gem install guard-bdd

or add it to your Gemfile:

gem 'guard-bdd'

Add guard definition to your Guardfile by running this command:

$ guard init bdd

Guardfile

guard 'bdd' do
  watch(%r{lib/(.*)\.rb$}) { |m| "spec/unit/#{File.basename(m[1])}_spec.rb"}
  watch(%r{spec/.*_spec\.rb})
end

Options

You can configure the paths to the different test groups:

  • :unit_paths defaults to ['spec/unit']
  • :integration_paths defaults to ['spec/integration']
  • :acceptance_paths defaults to ['spec/acceptance']
  • :feature_paths defaults to ['features']

Development

Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Please create a topic branch for every separate change you make.
