#diffable?Boolean

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Matchers are not diffable by default. Override this to make your subclass diffable.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

#match_unless_raises(*exceptions) ⇒ Object

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Used to wrap a block of code that will indicate failure by raising one of the named exceptions.

This is used by rspec-rails for some of its matchers that wrap rails' assertions.

#matches?(actual) ⇒ Boolean

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Indicates if the match is successful. Delegates to match, which should be defined on a subclass. Takes care of consistently initializing the actual attribute.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

  match(expected, actual)
end

#supports_block_expectations?Boolean

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Most matchers are value matchers (i.e. meant to work with expect(value)) rather than block matchers (i.e. meant to work with expect { }), so this defaults to false. Block matchers must override this to return true.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)
