RSpec Autotest now a Rails Plugin

Posted by Nick Sieger Wed, 15 Nov 2006 15:46:00 GMT

Inspired by a posting on the RSpec list and recent comments stating that my Auto RSpec hack wasn’t working, I’ve bitten the bullet and upgraded to RSpec 0.7.2, and made rspec_autotest a plugin in the process. So, herewith are the necessary incantations to auto-rspec your project. If you’ve tried my hack already, please remove any bits you previously had installed.

  • Install RSpec on Rails, following the original instructions. As of RSpec 0.7.3, the specific version of ZenTest is no longer required. Also, diff-lcs is required to show unified diff output on should == failures.
gem install zentest -v 3.4.1
gem install diff-lcs
gem install rspec
script/plugin install svn://
  • Install rspec_autotest
script/plugin install
  • Start autotest
rake spec:autotest

Please let me know if you experience any problems!
