A library for setting up Ruby objects as test data.
Ruby Cucumber
Latest commit 0424c5a Jun 14, 2016 @humzashah humzashah committed with joshuaclayton replaced inject with each_with_object to reduce line
`each_with_object` doesn't require the hash to be returned at the end of
each iterations. this enables us to save a line.

the speed difference between `inject` and `each_with_object` will most
likely be inconsequential in this scenario.

factory_girl Build Status Dependency Status Code Climate

factory_girl is a fixtures replacement with a straightforward definition syntax, support for multiple build strategies (saved instances, unsaved instances, attribute hashes, and stubbed objects), and support for multiple factories for the same class (user, admin_user, and so on), including factory inheritance.

If you want to use factory_girl with Rails, see factory_girl_rails.

Documentation

You should find the documentation for your version of factory_girl on Rubygems.

See GETTING_STARTED for information on defining and using factories. We also have a detailed introductory video, available for free on Upcase.

Install

Add the following line to Gemfile:

gem 'factory_girl'

and run bundle install from your shell.

To install the gem manually from your shell, run:

gem install factory_girl

Caveat: As of ActiveSupport 5.0 and above, Ruby 2.2.2+ is required. Because of Rubygems' dependency resolution when installing gems, you may see an error similar to:

$ gem install factory_girl
ERROR:  Error installing factory_girl:
    activesupport requires Ruby version >= 2.2.2.

To bypass this, install a pre-5.0 version of ActiveSupport before installing manually.

Supported Ruby versions

The factory_girl 3.x+ series supports MRI Ruby 1.9. Additionally, factory_girl 3.6+ supports JRuby 1.6.7.2+ while running in 1.9 mode. See GETTING_STARTED for more information on configuring the JRuby environment.

For versions of Ruby prior to 1.9, please use factory_girl 2.x.
