A Busser runner plugin for Rspec

Installation and Setup

Please read the Busser plugin usage page for more details.


Please put test files into [COOKBOOK]/test/integration/[SUITES]/rspec/

  `-- test
     `-- integration
        `-- default
           `-- rspec
              `-- spec_helper.rb
              `-- Gemfile

You can specify your own test gem dependencies with a Gemfile under the rspec path, like this: test/integration/<suite>/rspec/Gemfile. Don't forget to put gem "rspec" there!

How do I ... ?

Change the rspec formatter?

You may be familar with using the rspec -f flag to change the rspec formatter. RSpec also offers a way to set the formatter from your specs:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  # The same as `rspec -f documentation`
  config.add_formatter "documentation"


Pull requests are very welcome! Make sure your patches are well tested. Ideally create a topic branch for every separate change you make. For example:

  1. Fork the repo
  2. Create your feature branch (git checkout -b my-new-feature)
  3. Commit your changes (git commit -am 'Added some feature')
  4. Push to the branch (git push origin my-new-feature)
  5. Create new Pull Request
