minitest-metadata allows you to set metadata (key-value) for your test cases so that before and after hooks can use them.
You can use it to:
- change environments (prepare drivers, mocks etc)
- mark tests as slow, fast or (God forbid) order dependant
Note about speed
minitest-metadata adds some overhead so you might want to limit it to only acceptance specs. If that's the case do this:
# Gemfile group :test do gem 'minitest-metadata', :require => false end # test/acceptance_test_helper.rb class AcceptanceTest < MiniTest::Spec include MiniTest::Metadata end
gem install minitest-metadata
or put in a Gemfile:
