Test views, be true! :) Build Status

Mikhalok

Why?

  • you need to test some complex views
  • and you want to use RSpec2
  • and assert_select seems is something strange to you
  • have_tag in rspec-rails are deprecated now
  • you need a user-firendly output in your error messages

Being true

Install

Add to your Gemfile (in the :test group :) ):

group :test do
  gem 'rspec2-rails-views-matchers'
end

Instructions for installing Nokogiri.

Usage

Simple example:

view=<<-HTML
<h1>Simple Form</h1>
<form action="/users" method="post">
<p>
  <input type="email" name="user[email]" />
</p>
<p>
  <input type="submit" id="special_submit" />
</p>
</form>
HTML

view.should have_tag('form', :with => { :action => '/users', :method => 'post' }) do
  with_tag "input", :with => { :name => "user[email]", :type => 'email' }
  with_tag "input#special_submit", :count => 1
  without_tag "h1", :text => 'unneeded tag'
  without_tag "p",  :text => /content/i
end

Also included special matchers for form inputs:

and of course you can use the without_ matchers (see the documentation).

More info

You can find more on RubyDoc, take a look at have_tag method.

Also, please read CHANGELOG, it might be helpful.
