Micronaut Rails


Micronaut Rails is a set of extension to deal with rails mode testing. For the moment think of it is a prototype of RSpec lite. Definitely pre alpha at the moment.


  • Ruby 1.8.6+

  • ActionPack

  • Micronaut (via spicycode-micronaut on GitHub)


  • No support for pure Rails fixtures, and no plans to add it - we use Factory Girl/Fixture Replacement instead, so send a patch if you want support for this).

  • No support for Rails integration tests – use Cucumber (github.com/aslakhellesoy/cucumber) instead!

  • In use in real-world projects on Rails 2.3+ - older versions may have issues.


  • RSpec for the great ideas and matchers
