= ShouldaDeferred ShouldaDeferred is a take on a few shoulda extensions to defer context and should blocks, like xshould and xcontext. NOTE: You will need to have Shoulda installed before you can use this plugin. == Installation ShouldaDeferred is available as plugin: script/plugin install git://github.com/rudionrails/shoulda_deferred.git You will need to manually require this plugin in your test helper. That is, because otherwise it would get automatically loaded in every environment. # in test/test_helper.rb require 'shoulda_deferred' == Usage You are able to put an 'x' before any shoulda macro or block in order to run it later. xshould will postpone a single should statement. xcontext will delay that context and anything within the context block. You will see a " * DEFERRED... " message in the console for all deferred test. For xcontext, you will see a deferred message for all containing should blocks and subcontexts. This plugin also works for any other shoulda macro, like xshould_change, xshould_validate_presence_of, xshould_respond_with, etc. === Examples xshould 'do something awesome' do flunk "defer" end # => DEFERRED: SomeController should do something awesome. xcontext 'a deferred context' do should 'do something' do flunk "defer" end end # => DEFERRED: a deferred context should do something. xcontext 'a deferred context' do context 'with another subcontext' do should 'do something awesome' do flunk "defer" end end end # => DEFERRED: a deferred context with another subcontext should do something awesome. context 'a regular context' do xcontext 'with a deferred subcontext' do should 'make me happy' do assert true end end should 'assert true' do assert true # this will run! end end # => DEFERRED: a regular context with a deferred subcontext should make me happy. xshould_respond_with :success # => DEFERRED: SomeController should respond with success. context 'a regular context' do xshould_render_template :index end # => DEFERRED: a regular context should render template index. ... and on and on and on and on... == Known Issues None at the moment :-) Copyright (c) 2009 Rudolf Schmidt, released under the MIT license.
