            <500: Internal Server Error> indicates that some exception has been raised in your controller that wasn't properly rescued. If you can't reproduce the issue on your development environment you can:

            1. Either add a begin..rescue in your controller's action, then inside the rescue do: p $ERROR_INFO.message ( $ERROR_INFO is a special variable that contains the last exception rescued, it's a more readable way to use $!

            Capybara checking HTML class and ID
            Asked 2022-Mar-23 at 22:53

            I'm currently trying to find this element and have capybara validate that it's there. There's an element that shows up and I'm using page.should have_css to see if this element is there.



            Answered 2022-Mar-23 at 05:34

            Did you try page.should have_css('.ui-grid-icon-cancel') . When looking for a class element, you need to use the notation of a period rather then explicitly putting the word "class". `

            Hi i was deploying a branch on heroku and threw up this error. I also tried deploying a branch which worked perfectly, but that is also showing the same error.

            local yarn verion : 1.22.17 local node version : v12.22.7 Please help !!!

            Tried building without yarn.lock and package-lock same thing.

            This is how it starts Heroku deployment build log through CLI

            I had a similar problem but resolved by following steps.

            1. Run the following command. heroku buildpacks:add heroku/nodejs --index 1
            2. Update node version from 16.x to 12.16.2 in package.json.



            Writing Capybara expectations to verify phone numbers
            Asked 2021-Dec-15 at 21:40

            I'm using AWS Textract to pull information from PDF documents. After the scanned text is returned from AWS and persisted to a var, I'm doing this:

            phone_number = '(555) 123-4567'

            scanned_pdf_text.should have_text phone_number

            But this fails about 20% of the time because of the non-deterministic way that AWS is returning the scanned PDF text. On occasion, the phone numbers can appear either of these two ways:

            (555)123-4567 or (555) 123-4567

            Some of this scanned text is very large, and I'd prefer not to go through the exercise of sanitizing the text coming back if I can avoid it (I'm also not good at regex usage). I also think using or logic to handle both cases seems to be a little heavy handed just to check text that is so similar (and clearly near-identical to the human eye).

            Is there an rspec matcher that'll allow me to check on this text? I'm also using Capybara.default_normalize_ws = true but that doesn't seem to help in this case.



            Answered 2021-Dec-15 at 21:40

            Assuming scanned_pdf_text is a string and the only differences you're seeing is in spaces then you can just get rid of the spaces and compare



            Capybara returns Argument error when attach the file
            Asked 2021-Aug-27 at 11:00

            I am working on browser automation and trying to attach the file using the Capybara software. I have a button by clicking which my script should start to upload the file. It works already in one place on the same website for me, so I am trying to implement it again.

            The way I do it:



            Answered 2021-Aug-18 at 23:56

            When using the block version of attach_file Capybara attaches a listener for clicks on elements and uses that to determine which input you want a file attached to. Since it's not finding it either it's not triggering the click, or the way your code is structured is hiding the click from Capybara. First I'd ask why you're using all and the element selector type to find the button and instead suggest (assuming browser is the Capybara session??)

            Ok, so instead of setting Capybara.app_host as, we need to set it to

            We also need to tell capybara to always include the port.
