We know you don't do TDD
We can help you DDT so you can TDD.
SpecWriter is a tool aimed to help in promoting the art of TDD, by first helping to compile the most basic tests ( supporting only model tests for now ) for your new rails application, so you can continue on the testing path as you progress in the development process.
Add this line to your application's Gemfile:
gem 'spec_writer', group: development
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install spec_writer
The usage of this gem depends on the use of the following tools/frameworks:
Others that might be useful, but not entirely compulsory includes:
- Database cleaner
In a rails application, set up the rspec testing, with factories in the
Next, to have SpecWriter compile model test for a model, simply run:
$ rails generate model_spec MODEL
generating for User model, for example, will be:
$ rails generate model_spec User
This will generate a spec file in the
spec/models/<model>_spec.rb and populate with some good basic tests.
rspec here might show some failing tests due to absence of required factory, either create those factories, or fix test as appropriate.
Tests covered are:
- Validation tests
- Association tests
- Graceful destroyals for associated models ( This is usually useful to identify where the
dependent: destroyoption has been omited so as to avoid the common
update or delete on table "<table>" violates foreign key constrainterror on a resource.)
After checking out the repo, run
bin/setup to install dependencies. Then, run
rake test to run the tests. You can also run
bin/console for an interactive prompt that will allow you to experiment.
To install this gem onto your local machine, run
bundle exec rake install. To release a new version, update the version number in
version.rb, and then run
bundle exec rake release, which will create a git tag for the version, push git commits and tags, and push the
.gem file to rubygems.org.
