RSpec Console Build Status

RSpec Console allows you to run your RSpec tests in a Rails console. Best served chilled with irb-config.

It is especially helpful when working with jRuby, because it will keep an active JVM running for you. This drastically reduces the feedback loop of doing TDD in jRuby -- and all without messing with nail-gun!

Usage

1) Install rspec-console with:

gem 'rspec-console'

2) With Rails, disable cache_classes so reload! function properly

Ensure you turned off Rails's cache_classes in the config/environment/test.rb file:

Rails.application.configure do
  # turn off this!
  config.cache_classes = false
end

3) Launch your console

With Rails, launch your console with rails c test.

4) Launch your tests

If you have Pry installed, you will have access to the rspec command in your console, which works exactly like the shell command line rspec one.

If you don't have pry, you can use:

RSpecConsole.run 'spec/integration/closing_brand_action_spec.rb:33' '--format=doc'

Example

pafy@bisou ~/prj/sniper [master●] % rails c test
~/prj/crowdtap/sniper (test) > rspec spec/integration/closing_brand_action_spec.rb:33 --format=doc
Run options: include {:locations=>{"./spec/integration/closing_brand_action_spec.rb"=>[33]}}
