DEPRECATED

Thoughtbot is no longer supporting this project, it hasn't be tested or used since at least Rails 2.x.

We recommend upgrading to Rails 3 as soon as possible, since this gem's functionality was merged into Rails a while ago.

Quiet Backtrace

Quiet Backtrace suppresses the noise in your Test::Unit backtrace. It also provides hooks for you to add additional silencers and filters.

Install

sudo gem install thoughtbot-quietbacktrace --source=http://gems.github.com

Usage

Silencers remove lines from the backtrace. Create your own:

# Will reject all lines that include the word "mongrel", 
# like "/gems/mongrel/server.rb" or "/app/my_mongrel_server/rb"
backtrace_cleaner = QuietBacktrace::BacktraceCleaner.new
backtrace_cleaner.add_silencer { |line| line =~ /mongrel/ }

Filters modify the output of backtrace lines. Create your own:

# Will turn "/my/rails/root/app/models/person.rb" into "/app/models/person.rb"
backtrace_cleaner = QuietBacktrace::BacktraceCleaner.new
backtrace_cleaner.add_filter { |line| line.gsub(Rails.root, '') }

Requirements

  • Test::Unit
