Watir::Rails

Gem Version Build Status Coverage

This gem makes the Watir work with Rails.

Installation

Add this code to your Gemfile:

group :test do
  gem "watir-rails"
end

Usage

Just use Watir like you've always done in your requests/integration tests:

browser = Watir::Browser.new
browser.goto home_path
browser.text_field(name: "first").set "Jarmo"
browser.text_field(name: "last").set  "Pertman"
browser.button(name: "sign_in").click

Ignore Rails Exceptions

By default, exceptions raised by Rails application will be re-raised in your tests making them to fail.

This feature is only enabled when config.action_dispatch.show_exceptions is set to false in your Rails configuration.

You can disable it in watir-rails by ignoring exceptions:

Watir::Rails.ignore_exceptions = true

Limitations

  • When using Rails path/url helpers in your tests then always use path instead of url methods, because latter won't work!
