minitest-rails

MiniTest integration for Rails 3.1.

Install

gem install minitest-rails

This installs the following gems:

minitest

Configure

Create a new rails app without Test::Unit:

rails new MyApp --skip-test-unit

Add minitest-rails to the :test and :development groups in Isolate:

env :development, :test do
  gem 'minitest-rails'
end

Or, for the unenlightened, add minitest-rails to the :test and :development groups in Gemfile:

group :test, :development do
  gem 'minitest-rails'
end

Next run the installation generator with the following:

rails generate mini_test:install

This will add the minitest_helper.rb file to the test directory.

Usage

We aim to expose MiniTest with minimal changes for testing within Rails. You can either create test classes that inherit from MiniTest::Unit::TestCase or you can use the MiniTest::Spec DSL. You can generate tests when you use the standard model, controller, scaffold, and other generators:

rails generate model User

Or, you can use the MiniTest generators directly:

rails generate mini_test::model User

And you can specify generating the tests using the MiniTest::Spec DSL on any of the generators by providing the --spec option:

rails generate model User --spec
