Rails 3, RSpec, Factory Girl, Haml, and jQuery
Easily generate a Rails 3 application with RSpec, Factory Girl, Haml, and jQuery in one line:
% rails my_app -J -T -m \ http://github.com/leshill/rails3-app/raw/master/app.rb
rvm, so the application has an
.rvmrc generated to specify a gemset.
This also gives you the Factory Girl and Haml Rails 3 generators — the generators for RSpec are in the RSpec gem — so that your factories and views are generated using Factory Girl and Haml, and that all your generated tests are specs. These generators are from the rails3_generators gem, we pulled them out to avoid all the other dependencies included in that gem.
Since the Rails helper
Prototype, we used this
git, so the application has a git repo initialized with all the initial changes staged.
After the application has been generated, there are a few clean up commands to run:
% cd my_app % gem install bundler % bundle install % bundle lock % script/rails generate rspec:install
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don’t break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
