RSpec JUnit Formatter

RSpec results that Jenkins can read. Probably a few other CI servers, too.

Inspired by the work of Diego Souza on RSpec Formatters after frustration with CI Reporter.


Install the gem:

gem install rspec_junit_formatter

Use it:

rspec --format RspecJunitFormatter  --out rspec.xml

You'll get an XML file with your results in it.

More Permanent Usage

Add it to your Gemfile if you're using Bundler. Put it in the same groups as rspec.

In your .rspec, usually alongside another formatter, add:

--format RspecJunitFormatter
--out rspec.xml

I use it with the excellent Fuubar formatter.


  • It would be nice to split things up into individual test suites, although would this correspond to example groups? The subject? The spec file? Not sure yet.
  • This would sit nicely in rspec-core, and has been designed to do so.
