FactoryGirl is a great replacement for your Ruby-on-rails fixtures. They offer more flexibility for generating stubs and mack-ups for your automated testing.
SimpleCov is the test coverage tool for Ruby 1.9.x (Use RCov for Ruby 1.8.x).
Using both in conjunction requires two extra lines in your test/test_helper.rb file not covered by any documentation. This will prevent you from getting messages like "Factory not registered: " or "uninitialized constant Test::Unit::TestCase::FactoryGirl (NameError)".
My test_helper.rb file looks like:
- Code: Select all
require 'simplecov' SimpleCov.start 'rails' ENV["RAILS_ENV"] = "test" require File.expand_path('../../config/environment', __FILE__) require 'rails/test_help' # The following two lines of code will reinitialize Factorygirl: require 'factory_girl' FactoryGirl.reload class ActiveSupport::TestCase ... end
