A Busser runner plugin for Rspec


This software project is no longer under active development as it has no active maintainers. The software may continue to work for some or all use cases, but issues filed in GitHub will most likely not be triaged. If a new maintainer is interested in working on this project please come chat with us in #test-kitchen on Chef Community Slack.

Installation and Setup

Please read the Busser plugin usage page for more details.


Please put test files into [COOKBOOK]/test/integration/[SUITES]/rspec/

  `-- test
     `-- integration
        `-- default
           `-- rspec
              `-- spec_helper.rb
              `-- Gemfile

You can specify your own test gem dependencies with a Gemfile under the rspec path, like this: test/integration/<suite>/rspec/Gemfile. Don't forget to put gem "rspec" there!

How do I ... ?

Change the rspec formatter?

You may be familar with using the rspec -f flag to change the rspec formatter. RSpec also offers a way to set the formatter from your specs:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  # The same as `rspec -f documentation`
  config.add_formatter "documentation"


Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Ideally create a topic branch for every separate change you make. For example:

  1. Fork the repo
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Added some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
