If you get '[Webpacker] Compilation Failed' when trying to run specs, you might need to get yarn to install its dependencies properly. One way of doing this is by precompiling the assets:
yarn rake assets:precompile
This has the added benefit that it reduces the risk of timeouts when the tests are running, as assets will not get compiled on the fly.
You'll need to run
There are a few tools available to assist with writing specs:
Strategies: You can use json
:factory_nameto generate the json that the API is expected to receive. This is very useful for mocking web responses. The association strategy is used for building nested json, it will usually only be used as part of other factories.
api_object: Ensures that lots o the shared behaviour, like actions and uuids are generated automatically barcoded: Automatically ensures that barcode is populated with the correct hash, and calculates human and machine barcodes
build: Returns an actual object, as though already found via the api. Useful for unti tests
with_belongs_to_associationscan be used in factories to set up the relevant json. They won't actually mock up the relevant requests, but ensure that things like actions are defined so that the api knows where to find them.
Request stubs are provided by webmock. Two helper methods will assist with the majority of mocking requests to the api,
spec/support/api_url_helper.rb for details.
Note: Due to the way the api functions, the factories don't yet support nested associations.
