RSpec::Parameterized Gem Version Build Status

Support simple parameterized test syntax in rspec.

# Nested Array Style
describe "plus" do
  where(:a, :b, :answer) do
    [
      [1 , 2 , 3],
      [5 , 8 , 13],
      [0 , 0 , 0]
    ]
  end

  with_them do
    it "should do additions" do
      expect(a + b).to eq answer
    end
  end

  with_them do
    # Can browse parameters via `params` method in with_them block
    # Can browse all parameters via `all_params` method in with_them block
    it "#{params[:a]} + #{params[:b]} == #{params[:answer]}" do
      expect(a + b).to eq answer
    end
  end
end

# Hash and Array Style
# Given parameters is each value combinations
# On this case
# [
#   [1, 5, 2],
#   [1, 5, 4],
#   [1, 7, 2],
#   [1, 7, 4],
#   [1, 9, 2],
#   [1, 9, 4],
#   [3, 5, 2],
#   [3, 5, 4],
#   [3, 7, 2],
#   [3, 7, 4],
#   [3, 9, 2],
#   [3, 9, 4]
# ]
describe "Hash arguments" do
  where(a: [1, 3], b: [5, 7, 9], c: [2, 4])

  with_them do
    it "sums is even" do
      expect(a + b + c).to be_even
    end
  end
end

# Table Syntax Style (like Groovy spock)
# Need ruby-2.1 or later
describe "plus" do
  using RSpec::Parameterized::TableSyntax

  where(:a, :b, :answer) do
    1 | 2 | 3
    5 | 8 | 13
    0 | 0 | 0
  end

  with_them do
    it "should do additions" do
      expect(a + b).to eq answer
    end
  end
end

# Verbose Syntax
# For complex inputs or if you just want to be super explicit
describe "Verbose syntax" do
  where do
    {
      "positive integers" => {
        a: 1,
        b: 2,
        answer: 3,
      },

    }
  end

  with_them do
    it "should do additions" do
      expect(a + b).to eq answer
    end
  end
end

# It's also possible to override each combination name using magic variable :case_name
# Output:
# Custom test case name
#   positive integers
#     should do additions
#   negative integers
#     should do additions
#   mixed integers
#     should do additions
describe "Custom names for regular syntax" do
  where(:case_name, :a, :b, :answer) do
    [
      ["positive integers",  6,  2,  8],
      ["negative integers", -1, -2, -3],
      [   "mixed integers", -5,  3, -2],
    ]
  end

  with_them do
    it "should do additions" do
      expect(a + b).to eq answer
    end
  end
end

# Or :case_names lambda for hash syntax
# Output:
# when hash arguments
#   1 + 5 + 2
#     sum is even
#   1 + 5 + 4
#     sum is even
#   1 + 7 + 2
#     sum is even
#   ...
describe "Custom naming for hash syntax" do
  where(case_names: ->(a, b, c){"#{a} + #{b} + #{c}"}, a: [1, 3], b: [5, 7, 9], c: [2, 4])

  with_them do
    it "sum is even" do
      expect(a + b + c).to be_even
    end
  end
end

I was inspired by udzura's mock.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rspec-parameterized'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rspec-parameterized

Usage

Require rspec-parameterized from your spec_helper.rb.

require 'rspec-parameterized'

Follow the sample spec above.

Arguments given to with_them is directly passed to describe. You can specify :pending, :focus, etc. here.
