Writing Tests

Tests are an important part of making sure our website is running correctly. We appreciate when you include tests when you contribute new features or fix bugs, but don't let that stop you from getting involved. We've tried to make it easy for you to start writing tests. Start up Guard in order to run the test suite:

$ bundle exec guard

Press enter to run all of the tests, or save a file to run its corresponding test automatically.

We use RSpec for unit tests and Cucumber for integration tests.

Submitting a Pull Request

From your forked repository, create a separate branch. Then submit your pull request. When your pull request has been accepted, it will automatically be deployed.
