Chai jQuery Rails

chai-jquery is a plugin for chai that gives you jquery expectation helpers.

This is a simple gem that adds chai-jquery to the rails asset pipline.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

group :development, :test do
  gem 'chai-jquery-rails'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Then in your test files add a sprocket require statement:

js: //= require chai-jquery

coffeescript: #= require chai-jquery

This gem also depends on chai which in turn depends on mocha. The best way to get those is with the konacha gem.


  • chai-jquery for doing the hard work.
  • Derek Prior for blogging about how to write a gem that includes rails assets.
