rspec-rerun reruns failed RSpec examples (for brittle tests).
It writes failed examples to the file
rspec.failures and feeds these back to RSpec via
(For RSpec 2 use version '~> 0.3.1'. )
# Gemfile group :development, :test do gem 'rspec-rerun' end
# Rakefile require 'rspec-rerun/tasks' task default: 'rspec-rerun:spec'
echo rspec.failures >> .gitignore
rake rspec-rerun:spec. Failed examples will be rerun automatically.
rspec-rerun:spec task accepts the following parameters:
retry_count: number of retries, defaults to 1, also available by setting
You can set the following global environment variables:
RSPEC_RERUN_RETRY_COUNT: number of retries, defaults to the value of
RSPEC_RERUN_PATTERN: spec file pattern, defaults to the value defined by
RSPEC_RERUN_TAG: only execute the tag specified
RSPEC_RERUN_VERBOSE: if 'false', don't show the rspec command invoked by Rake
Rerunning failed specs has been a long requested feature #456 in RSpec. A viable approach was suggested in #596. The infrastructure from that pull request was merged and released with rspec-core 2.11, which enabled re-running specs outside of RSpec, as described in our blog post. This gem has evolved from it.
