kandi X-RAY | rspec Summary

rspec is a Ruby library typically used in Testing, Functional Testing, Ruby On Rails applications. rspec has no bugs, it has no vulnerabilities, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. You can download it from GitHub.

rspec is a meta-gem, which depends on the rspec-core, rspec-expectations and rspec-mocks gems. Each of these can be installed separately and loaded in isolation using require. Among other benefits, this allows you to use rspec-expectations, for example, in Test::Unit::TestCase if you happen to prefer that style. Conversely, if you like RSpec's approach to declaring example groups and examples (describe and it) but prefer Test::Unit assertions and mocha, rr or flexmock for mocking, you'll be able to do that without having to install or load the components of RSpec that you're not using.

            In a Rails engine Is it possible for Rspec to make use of Rspec support system helpers from another engine?
            Asked 2022-Apr-05 at 05:19

            Given a Rails engine_one that has a spec support file engine_one/spec/support/system/order_functions.rb, containing functionality to support the testing of various order system tests such as simulating a logged in user, adding products to an order etc and contains methods such as log_visitor_in that get used extensively when testing order processing etc...

            So now in engine_two that extends some ordering functionality from engine_one I wish to add a new system test that first has to log a visitor in. So how can I make use of that support method from from engine_one?

            So far I have mounted the engines in the dummy app I have required engine_one in engine_two/lib/engine.rb I have required the support file in the relevant test but it can't be found and obviously I have added engine_one to engine_two.gemspec

            When you require a file, ruby searches for it relative to paths in $LOAD_PATH; spec/ or test/ are not part of it.

            app directory is a special one in rails, any subdirectory automatically becomes part of autoload_paths. Auto load paths can be seen here ActiveSupport::Dependencies.autoload_paths.

            Any classes/modules defined inside app/* directories can be used without requiring corresponding files. Rails v7 uses zeitwerk to automatically load/reload files by relying on the 'file name' to 'constant name' relationship. That's why folders map to namespaces and files map to classes/modules.

            To fix your issue put any shared code where it can be grabbed with require. Type $LOAD_PATH in the console:



            Rails 7 engine how to make uncompiled stylesheets available to host app?
            Asked 2022-Apr-03 at 13:08

            So I have a file not found problem. I have an engine that works in development mode in the engines test/dummy app, the engine allows the editing of sass variables and stores them in a theme table, the variables are used by a sass partial such as _banner.scss containing variables used in the main stylesheet such as $banner_color which is then imported into the main stylesheet which in turn is precompiled using an initializer in the engine.rb file and inclusion in the app/config/engine_name_manifest.js.

            The files are all available in development with the local dummy app but not in the eventual host app due to the assets being compiled.

            I have a rake task that takes the data, updates the relevant partial e.g. _banner.scss with the data from the theme table but of course the partials are not not available in a host app as the engine has already compiled them. I'm looking for a solution that will allow me to edit the raw, uncompiled stylesheets then recompile them. Obviously my Capistrano deploy script will need to reapply the stylesheet changes every deployment but that is just a rake task call. What approach should I take? Should I find a way to copy the css files to the host app in an engine initializer? Should I use a different approach entirely, I have started looking at propshaft but that is a massive step to replace sass rails and I'm not sure how that would help

            Thanks for clarifying. If I understood correctly here my take on it.

            partials are not not available in a host app as the engine has already compiled them

            Partials are still there, precompilation just outputs *.{css/js} files into public/assets/ that are declared in app/assets/config/manifest.js.

            To get to engines files, instead of Rails.root use:



            Rails 7 Ruby 3.1 LoadError: cannot load such file -- net/smtp
            Asked 2022-Jan-25 at 16:15

            I upgraded to Rails 7 and Ruby 3.1. While trying to run tests with rspec I got the error below. How can I fix it?



            Answered 2022-Jan-25 at 16:15

            UPD: on January 6th, 2022 Rails 7.0.1 was released:

            The focus of this release is bring support to Ruby 3.1

            Amongh other Ruby 3.1-related issues it brought a fix for this problem. So upgrade to Rails >= 7.0.1.

            Add gem 'net-smtp', require: false to your Gemfile and run bundle.

            Similarly I assume you may have problems with net-imap and net-pop and so have to add them until a new mail gem version is released.

            RAILS Calling `DidYouMean::SPELL_CHECKERS.merge!(error_name => spell_checker)' has been deprecated
            Asked 2022-Jan-21 at 13:34

            Good morning people.

            I'm trying to understand the error below but as I'm new to rails, I didn't quite understand. Does anyone have a light on what it could be?

            I searched the internet but didn't find anything specific.

            I searched on the internet but didn't identify anything, if anyone has seen it or has the link, you can send me and I'll see.

            If you need any more information to help, let me know and I'll edit the post and add it, I don't know if there's anything else I could have already posted.

            thank you for your help !!



            Answered 2022-Jan-21 at 13:34

            First of all, the message about DidYouMean is a deprecation warning not an error, it doesn't break your app. It means that usage of DidYouMean::SPELL_CHECKERS is deprecated and will be removed in a future version of ruby. In this case in Ruby 3.3. You shouldn't worry about it until you use versions that are lower than 3.3. It's not your code that triggers the warning. It comes from a gem named Thor. The issue was solved in thor version 1.2.0. You can update the gem by calling bundle update thor.

            The actual error comes from the bootsnap gem:



            A "constexpr" function should not be declared "inline"
            Asked 2022-Jan-07 at 16:40

            By analyzing code using SonarLint, I got a message (the title of the question) about a destructor that is declared like below:



            Answered 2022-Jan-07 at 16:40


            An explicitly-defaulted function that is not defined as deleted may be declared constexpr or consteval only if it is constexpr-compatible ([special], []). A function explicitly defaulted on its first declaration is implicitly inline ([dcl.inline]), and is implicitly constexpr ([dcl.constexpr]) if it is constexpr-compatible.

            (From Explicitly defaulted functions, emphasis mine.)

            Foo is likely constexpr-compatible in C++20, because std::vector can now be constexpr.

            Answered 2021-Oct-31 at 17:41

            Update: To fix this issue I used the solution from @mahatmanich listed here'

            Essentially, we need to delete the bin directory and then re-create it using rake app:update:bin

            Since rails 5 some 'rake' commands are encapsulated within the 'rails' command. However when one deletes 'bin/' directory one is also removeing the 'rails' command itself, thus one needs to go back to 'rake' for the reset since 'rails' is not available any longer but 'rake' still is.



            How do I test if a method is called on particular objects pulled from the DB in Rails with RSpec?
            Asked 2021-Oct-04 at 04:58

            If I have a User model that includes a method dangerous_action and somewhere I have code that calls the method on a specific subset of users in the database like this:



            Answered 2021-Oct-04 at 03:15

            I realised that I'm really trying to test two aspects of the perform_dangerous_action method. The first is the scoping of the database fetch, and the second is that it calls the correct method on the User objects that come up.

            For testing the scoping of the DB fetch, I should really just make a scope in the User class:

            It looks like your RuboCop is finding a configuration file that is part of your dependencies. Normally anything in vendor/ is ignored, but it seems your configuration is overriding that. It should be possible to fix it with something like:
