Rails app RSpec 2 matchers

RSpec 2 matchers to spec the structure of your Rails 3 app


gem install rails-app-spec


See specs for more details on how to use the API.

Usage example (teaser):

  require 'rails_assist'
  require 'rails-app-spec'  
  Rails.root.should have_controller :account do |content|
    content.should have_method :index

  Rails.root.should have_controller_file :account do |controller_file|
    controller_file.should have_controller_class :account do |klass|
      klass.should have_method :index

  Rails.root.should have_view_files :edit, :new, :show, :folder => :person  

  Rails.root.should have_view_dirs :person, :post, :blog    

  Rails.root.should have_model_dirs :admin, :editor

  Rails.root.should have_controller_files :person, :post, :blog 

  Rails.root.should have_stylesheet_files :light, :basic, :dark
  Rails.root.should have_javascript_files :form_validation, :effects

This library takes advantage of code-spec, file-spec and other essential spec extensions I have created ;)

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
