This gem provides support for using legacy formatters (that is, those that were written against the RSpec 2 formatter API) with RSpec 3.


Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rspec-legacy_formatters'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rspec-legacy_formatters


This gem MUST be required before the legacy formatter is loaded. We recommend you use RSpec's --require option, either from the command line:

$ rspec --require rspec/legacy_formatters --format MyCustomFormatter

...or by adding it to .rspec:

--require rspec/legacy_formatters
