With Guard-Teaspoon you can start up Guard, make changes to your tests or implementation files, and the specs will be run automatically using Teaspoon. It behaves very similarly to guard-rspec.
This project is still experimental, but is being worked on.
The version of guard-teaspoon will be bumped up to 0.8 to match what is current in teaspoon. The versions will stay in sync (at least in terms of a minor version) from now on so that it's clear which versions work together well.
Table of Contents
Add it to your Gemfile. Like Teaspoon, in most cases you'll want to restrict it to the
:development, :test groups.
group :development, :test do gem "teaspoon" gem "guard-teaspoon" end
Install Teaspoon using the install generator.
rails generate teaspoon:install
Generate the Guardfile that includes the standard Guard-Teaspoon template.
bundle exec guard init teaspoon
bundle exec guard start
In general this isn't very complicated, but if you have multiple suites setup in Teaspoon this can get a little complicated -- there's an expectation that you understand what you're doing in regards to using Guard.
The default Guardfile will watch for any file changes within your
_test instead of
_spec, or use js.coffee or coffee for file extensions, and you can use a more advanced regexp for other needs.
Specifying Teaspoon Environment
Guard-Teaspoon takes several options, but worth calling out is the environment option. This option allows you to tell Teaspoon where it should look for it's environment file, and is useful if Teaspoon is unable to resolve it's environment.
guard :teaspoon, environment: "spec/dummy/spec/teaspoon_env.rb" do end
...document when this is better hammered out...
