factory_girl Build Status

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.

Rails

factory_girl_rails provides Rails integration for factory_girl. All Rails-specific features are only compatible with Rails 3.

Currently, automatic factory definition loading is the only Rails-specific feature.

Download

Github: http://github.com/thoughtbot/factory_girl_rails/tree/master

Gem:

gem install factory_girl_rails

Configuration

Add factory_girl_rails to your Gemfile:

gem 'factory_girl_rails'

Optionally, to have rails generators automatically generate factories instead of fixtures, add the following to your application.rb file:

config.generators do |g|
  g.fixture_replacement :factory_girl
end

fixture_replacement :factory_girl takes an option :suffix => 'some_suffix' to generate factories as "modelname_some_suffix.rb"

Cucumber Integration

factory_girl ships with step definitions for Cucumber integration. For more information, see the GETTING_STARTED file in the factory_girl repo.
