Show me the cookies

Some helpers for poking around at your Capybara driven browser's cookies in integration tests.

Supports Capybara's bundled drivers (rack-test, Selenium Webdriver), and adapters for other drivers may be added (at time of writing Akephalos is also available).

API

  # puts a string summary of the cookie
  show_me_the_cookie(cookie_name)

  # returns a hash of the cookie
  # form: {:name, :domain, :value, :expires, :path}
  get_me_the_cookie(cookie_name)

  # puts a string summary of all cookies
  show_me_the_cookies

  # returns an array of cookie hashes
  # form: [{:name, :domain, :value, :expires, :path}]
  get_me_the_cookies

  # deletes the named cookie
  delete_cookie(cookie_name)

  # removes session cookies and expired persistent cookies
  expire_cookies

Contributing

If you find this useful, the best way to say thanks is to take a poke around the code and send feedback upstream. Bugs / requests / suggestions should be raised in the Github issues tracker.

Code contributions should be sent by github pull request, or contact me with a link to your repository branch. Patches should be small, isolated, testable, and preferably tested.

New drivers should be accompanied by a passing API spec. Driver-specific edge cases should not be added to the shared spec unless thought to be of general interest. API spec should not be changed because something doesn't work – try to fix the driver, or make an addon gem.

More tests are welcome.

Installation

Add to your gemfile's test group:

gem "show_me_the_cookies"

RSpec

in step_helper or your support directory:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.include ShowMeTheCookies, :type => :request
end

Example usage

In a request spec, using Capybara

specify "user login is remembered across browser restarts" do
  log_in_as_user
  should_be_logged_in
  #browser restart = session cookie is lost
  expire_cookies
  should_be_logged_in
end

Cucumber

Install by loading the gem and adding the following to your stepdefs or support files

World(ShowMeTheCookies)

Features

@javascript
Scenario: remembering users so they don't have to log in again for a while
  Given I am a site member
  When I go to the dashboard
  And I log in with the Remember Me option checked
  Then I should see "Welcome back"

  When I close my browser (clearing the session)
  And I return to the dashboard url
  Then I should see "Welcome back"

@rack_test
Scenario: don't remember users across browser restarts if they don't want it
  Given I am a site member
  When I go to the dashboard
  And I log in without the Remember Me option checked
  Then I should see "Welcome back"

  When I close my browser (clearing the session)
  And I return to the dashboard url
  Then I should see the log-in screen

Stepdefs

Then /^show me the cookies!$/ do
  show_me_the_cookies
end

Then /^show me the "([^"]*)" cookie$/ do |cookie_name|
  show_me_the_cookie(cookie_name)
end

Given /^I close my browser \(clearing the session\)$/ do
  expire_cookies
end
