AreWeThereYet is a gem that provides alternative profiling for RSpec 1.3.x for those who are not blessed enough to be using all the crunchy goodness that is RSpec 2.x. Metrics are tracked per file and per example in a SQLite3 database. The URI of the database is passed through as a parameter when running the specs
AreWeThereYet does not produce any output to STDOUT during the spec run. Howeevr, it does provide some rudimentary reporting that can be run against the data in the selected database.
V1.0 provides no backwards compatibility for data recorded by earlier versions.
Logging of spec execution time

- When running the specs pass the name of the class together with a database uri, e.g:
spec -fAreWeThereYet::Recorder:sqlite:///path/to/db.sqlite3 spec
Only passing tests are profiled.
AWTY currently offers two methods of listing execution times:
- By file, ordered by descending average execution time.
- By example, listing all the examples for a given file, ordered by descending average execution time. When listing by example, the file path in question must also be supplied.
The results can either be displayed by using the executable provided by the AWTY gem or by including the gem in code of your choice,
and making use of the
An example of using the executable:
bundle exec are_we_there_yet --database_uri sqlite:///path/to/results.sqlite3 --list examples --file_path /path/to/spec
are_we_there_yet -h will provide a list of available options.
Currently, the only output supported is csv. The generator of this is very rudimentary. If there are sufficient use cases where example descriptions contain characters that will break the output (e.g. examples that contain double quotes within their description) then it would make sense to use something like FasterCSV.
An example of including AreWeThereYet::Profiler in other Ruby code:
require 'rubygems' require 'are_we_there_yet' # Instantiate the Profiler class with a string containing the path to the location of the database profiler = AreWeThereYet::Profiler.new(@db_name) examples_for_file = profiler.list_examples("/path/to/spec")
Details of the output format as well as usage of
AreWeThereYet::Profiler#list_files method can be found in
AWTY should support any database that Sequel (the current underlying ORM library) supports - simply specify the URI accordingly.
My employer, Hetzner (Pty) Ltd, generously allows me to work on Open Source projects during work hours - which accounted for most of the time spent on this gem.
Thanks also to Sheldon Hearn for guidance/code review.
