This is a work in progress. Please submit errata, missing steps, or patches to the rspec-rails issue tracker.
Delete lib/tasks/rspec.rake, if present. Rake tasks now live in the rspec-rails gem.
There were a few changes to the generated
spec/spec_helper.rb file. We
recommend the following:
- set aside a copy of your existing
rails generate spec:install
- copy any customizations from your old spec_helper to the new one
If you prefer to make the changes manually in the existing spec_helper, here is what you need to change:
# rspec-1 require 'spec/autorun' Spec::Runner.configure do |config| ... end # rspec-2 require 'rspec/core' RSpec.configure do |config| ... end
This needs to move from before the action to after. For example:
# rspec-rails-1 controller.should render_template("edit") get :edit, :id => "37" # rspec-rails-2 get :edit, :id => "37" response.should render_template("edit")
rspec-1 had to monkey patch Rails to get render_template to work before the
action, and this broke a couple of times with Rails releases (requiring urgent
fix releases in RSpec). Part of the philosophy of rspec-rails-2 is to rely on
public APIs in Rails as much as possible. In this case,
delegates directly to Rails'
assert_template, which only works after the
