Open an issue

If the documentation wasn't able to help resolve the issue and no issue already exists, please open a new issue with the following in mind:

  • Please make sure only to include one issue per report. If you encounter multiple, unrelated issues, please report them as such.
  • Be detailed. Provide backtraces and example code when possible. Provide information about your environment. e.g., Ruby version, rails version, etc.
  • Own your issue. Actively participate in the discussion and help drive the issue to closure.
  • If you resolve your own issue, please share the details on the issue and close it out. Others might have the same issue and sharing solutions is helpful.

Running tests

Run all tests

$ rake test

Run a single test suite

$ rake test TEST=path/to/test.rb

Run a single test

$ rake test TEST=path/to/test.rb TESTOPTS="--name=test_something"

Run tests against different Rails versions by setting the RAILS_VERSION variable and bundling gems. (save this script somewhere executable and run from top of AMS repository)

#!/usr/bin/env bash

rcommand='puts YAML.load_file("./.travis.yml")["env"]["matrix"].join(" ").gsub("RAILS_VERSION=", "")'
versions=$(ruby -ryaml -e "$rcommand")

for version in ${versions[@]}; do
  export RAILS_VERSION="$version"
  rm -f Gemfile.lock
  bundle check || bundle --local || bundle
  bundle exec rake test
  if [ "$?" -eq 0 ]; then
    # green in ANSI
    echo -e "\033[32m **** Tests passed against Rails ${RAILS_VERSION} **** \033[0m"
    # red in ANSI
    echo -e "\033[31m **** Tests failed against Rails ${RAILS_VERSION} **** \033[0m"
    read -p '[Enter] any key to continue, [q] to quit...' prompt
    if [ "$prompt" = 'q' ]; then
      unset RAILS_VERSION
      exit 1
