Capybara integration for Minitest and Rails.
gem install minitest-rails-capybara
This installs the following gems:
minitest minitest-rails minitest-capybara capybara
Follow the instructions to configure
minitest-rails. Then add
minitest-rails-capybara to the
:test group in
gem "minitest-rails" group :test do gem "minitest-rails-capybara" end
Add the following to your
test_helper.rb file to the
Capybara is intended to be used for automating a browser to test your
application's features. This is different than the integration tests
that Rails provides, so you must use the
Capybara::Rails::TestCase for your feature tests.
To generate these feature tests, you can use the feature generator:
rails generate minitest:feature CanAccessHome
You can now use Capybara in your feature tests!
require "test_helper" class CanAccessHomeTest < Capybara::Rails::TestCase def test_homepage_has_content visit root_path assert page.has_content?("Home#index") end end
Or you can specify use of the Capybara's spec DSL by providing the
rails generate minitest:feature CanAccessHome --spec
Which will generate a feature test using the Capybara spec DSL:
require "test_helper" feature "Can Access Home" do scenario "has content" do visit root_path page.must_have_content "Home#index" end end
An alternative way to specify using Capybara is to provide
:capybara as a second argument to
require "test_helper" describe "Can Access Home", :capybara do it "has content" do visit root_path page.must_have_content "Home#index" end end
While not recommended, you can add Capybara to your integration tests. To
do this add the following to your
class ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest include Capybara::DSL include Capybara::Assertions end
Specifying drivers¶ ↑
Tests can specify drivers by setting the metadata.
For more information, see the minitest-metadata library:
Running Tests¶ ↑
Add the following to your
Rakefile or a file in
lib/tasks to add a rake task for running feature tests:
Rails::TestTask.new("test:features" => "test:prepare") do |t| t.pattern = "test/features /*_test.rb" end
If you want your new task to be run when you run
also add the following:
