Includes:
Hooks
Defined in:
lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb

Overview

Stores runtime configuration information.

Configuration options are loaded from ~/.rspec, .rspec, .rspec-local, command line switches, and the SPEC_OPTS environment variable (listed in lowest to highest precedence; for example, an option in ~/.rspec can be overridden by an option in .rspec-local).

Examples:

Standard settings

RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.drb          = true
  c.drb_port     = 1234
  c.default_path = 'behavior'
end

Hooks

RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.before(:suite) { establish_connection }
  c.before(:each)  {  :authorized }
  c.around(:each)  { |ex| Database.transaction(&ex) }
end

Instance Method Details

- (Object) add_formatter(formatter) Also known as: formatter=

Adds a formatter to the formatters collection. formatter can be a string representing any of the built-in formatters (see built_in_formatter), or a custom formatter class.

Note

For internal purposes, add_formatter also accepts the name of a class and paths to use for output streams, but you should consider that a private api that may change at any time without notice.

741
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 738

def add_formatter(formatter_to_use, *paths)
  paths << output_stream if paths.empty?
  formatter_loader.add formatter_to_use, *paths
end

- (Object) add_setting(name) - (Object) add_setting(name, opts)

Adds a custom setting to the RSpec.configuration object.

RSpec.configuration.add_setting :foo

Used internally and by extension frameworks like rspec-rails, so they can add config settings that are domain specific. For example:

RSpec.configure do |c|
  c.add_setting :use_transactional_fixtures,
    :default => true,
    :alias_with => :use_transactional_examples
end

add_setting creates three methods on the configuration object, a setter, a getter, and a predicate:

RSpec.configuration.foo=(value)
RSpec.configuration.foo
RSpec.configuration.foo? # returns true if foo returns anything but nil or false

Parameters:

  • opts (Hash) (defaults to: {})

    a customizable set of options

Options Hash (opts):

  • :default (Symbol)

    set a default value for the generated getter and predicate methods:

    add_setting(:foo, :default => "default value")
    
  • :alias_with (Symbol)

    Use :alias_with to alias the setter, getter, and predicate to another name, or names:

    add_setting(:foo, :alias_with => :bar)
    add_setting(:foo, :alias_with => [:bar, :baz])

  default = opts.delete(:default)
  (class << self; self; end).class_eval do
    add_setting(name, opts)
  end
  send("#{name}=", default) if default
end

- (Object) alias_example_to(new_name, *args)

Creates a method that delegates to example including the submitted args. Used internally to add variants of example like pending:

Examples:

alias_example_to :pending, :pending => true

# This lets you do this:

describe Thing do
  pending "does something" do
    thing = Thing.new
  end
end

# ... which is the equivalent of

describe Thing do
  it "does something", :pending => true do
    thing = Thing.new
  end
end

def alias_example_to(new_name, *args)
  extra_options = (args)
  RSpec::Core::ExampleGroup.define_example_method(new_name, extra_options)
end

- (Object) alias_it_behaves_like_to(new_name, report_label = '') Also known as: alias_it_should_behave_like_to

Define an alias for itshouldbehavelike that allows different language (like "ithasbehavior" or "itbehaves_like") to be employed when including shared examples.

Example:

alias_it_behaves_like_to(:it_has_behavior, 'has behavior:')

allows the user to include a shared example group like:

describe Entity do
  it_has_behavior 'sortability' do
    let(:sortable) { Entity.new }
  end
end

which is reported in the output as:

Entity
  has behavior: sortability
    # sortability examples here

end

- (Object) backtrace_clean_patterns

The patterns to discard from backtraces. Deprecated, use Configuration#backtraceexclusionpatterns instead

Defaults to RSpec::Core::BacktraceCleaner::DEFAULTEXCLUSIONPATTERNS

One can replace the list by using the setter or modify it through the getter

To override this behaviour and display a full backtrace, use --backtraceon the command line, in a .rspec file, or in the rspec_options attribute of RSpec's rake task.

- (Object) expect_with(*frameworks)

Sets the expectation framework module(s) to be included in each example group.

frameworks can be :rspec, :test_unit, :minitest, a custom module, or any combination thereof:

config.expect_with :rspec
config.expect_with :test_unit
config.expect_with :minitest
config.expect_with :rspec, :minitest
config.expect_with OtherExpectationFramework

RSpec will translate :rspec, :minitest, and :test_unit into the appropriate modules.

Configuration

If the module responds to configuration, expect_with will yield the configuration object if given a block:

config.expect_with OtherExpectationFramework do |custom_config|
  custom_config.custom_setting = true
end

- (Object) expose_current_running_example_as(method_name)

Exposes the current running example via the named helper method. RSpec 2.x exposed this via example, but in RSpec 3.0, the example is instead exposed via an arg yielded to it, before, let, etc. However, some extension gems (such as Capybara) depend on the RSpec 2.x's example method, so this config option can be used to maintain compatibility.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.expose_current_running_example_as :example
end

describe MyClass do
  before do
    # `example` can be used here because of the above config.
    do_something if example.[:type] == "foo"
  end
end

Parameters:

  • method_name (Symbol)

    the name of the helper method

end

- (Object) extend(mod, *filters)

Tells RSpec to extend example groups with mod. Methods defined in mod are exposed to example groups (not examples). Use filters to constrain the groups to extend.

Similar to include, but behavior is added to example groups, which are classes, rather than the examples, which are instances of those classes.

Examples:

module UiHelpers
  def run_in_browser
    # ...
  end
end

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.extend(UiHelpers, :type => :request)
end

describe "edit profile", :type => :request do
  run_in_browser

  it "does stuff in the client" do
    # ...
  end
end

- (Object) filter_run_excluding(*args)

Adds key/value pairs to the exclusion_filter. If the treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values config option is set to true and args excludes any symbols that are not part of a hash, each symbol is treated as a key in the hash with the value true.

Note

Filters set using this method can be overridden from the command line or config files (e.g. .rspec).

Examples:

# given this declaration
describe "something", :foo => 'bar' do
  # ...
end

# any of the following will exclude that group
config.filter_run_excluding :foo => 'bar'
config.filter_run_excluding :foo => /^ba/
config.filter_run_excluding :foo => lambda {|v| v == 'bar'}
config.filter_run_excluding :foo => lambda {|v,m| m[:foo] == 'bar'}

# given a proc with an arity of 1, the lambda is passed the value related to the key, e.g.
config.filter_run_excluding :foo => lambda {|v| v == 'bar'}

# given a proc with an arity of 2, the lambda is passed the value related to the key,
# and the metadata itself e.g.
config.filter_run_excluding :foo => lambda {|v,m| m[:foo] == 'bar'}

# with treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values = true
filter_run_excluding :foo # same as filter_run_excluding :foo => true

Adds key/value pairs to the inclusion_filter. If the treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values config option is set to true and args includes any symbols that are not part of a hash, each symbol is treated as a key in the hash with the value true.

Note

Filters set using this method can be overridden from the command line or config files (e.g. .rspec).

Examples:

# given this declaration
describe "something", :foo => 'bar' do
  # ...
end

# any of the following will include that group
config.filter_run_including :foo => 'bar'
config.filter_run_including :foo => /^ba/
config.filter_run_including :foo => lambda {|v| v == 'bar'}
config.filter_run_including :foo => lambda {|v,m| m[:foo] == 'bar'}

# given a proc with an arity of 1, the lambda is passed the value related to the key, e.g.
config.filter_run_including :foo => lambda {|v| v == 'bar'}

# given a proc with an arity of 2, the lambda is passed the value related to the key,
# and the metadata itself e.g.
config.filter_run_including :foo => lambda {|v,m| m[:foo] == 'bar'}

# with treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values = true
filter_run_including :foo # same as filter_run_including :foo => true

- (Object) format_docstrings

end

- (Object) include(mod, *filters)

Tells RSpec to include mod in example groups. Methods defined in mod are exposed to examples (not example groups). Use filters to constrain the groups in which to include the module.

Examples:

module AuthenticationHelpers
  def (user)
    # ...
  end
end

module UserHelpers
  def users(username)
    # ...
  end
end

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.include(UserHelpers) # included in all modules
  config.include(AuthenticationHelpers, :type => :request)
end

describe "edit profile", :type => :request do
  it "can be viewed by owning user" do
     users(:jdoe)
    get "/profiles/jdoe"
    assert_select ".username", :text => 'jdoe'

# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 385

def mock_framework=(framework)
  mock_with framework
end

- (Object) mock_with(framework)

Sets the mock framework adapter module.

framework can be a Symbol or a Module.

Given any of :rspec, :mocha, :flexmock, or :rr, configures the named framework.

Given :nothing, configures no framework. Use this if you don't use any mocking framework to save a little bit of overhead.

Given a Module, includes that module in every example group. The module should adhere to RSpec's mock framework adapter API:

setup_mocks_for_rspec
  - called before each example

verify_mocks_for_rspec
  - called after each example. Framework should raise an exception
    when expectations fail

teardown_mocks_for_rspec
  - called after verify_mocks_for_rspec (even if there are errors)

If the module responds to configuration and mock_with receives a block, it will yield the configuration object to the block e.g.

config.mock_with OtherMockFrameworkAdapter do |mod_config|
  mod_config.custom_setting = true
end

- (Object) register_ordering(name) {|list| ... }

Note:

Pass the symbol :global to set the ordering strategy that will be used to order the top-level example groups and any example groups that do not have declared :order metadata.

In RSpec 3, this registers a named ordering strategy that can later be used to order an example group's subgroups by adding :order => <name> metadata to the example group.

In RSpec 2.99, only register_ordering(:global) is supported, to set the global ordering.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.register_ordering :reverse do |list|
    list.reverse
  end
end

describe MyClass, :order => :reverse do
  # ...
end

Parameters:

  • name (Symbol)

    The name of the ordering.

Yields:

  • Block that will order the given examples or example groups

Yield Parameters:

  • list (Array<RSpec::Core::Example>, Array<RSpec::Core::ExampleGropu>)

    The examples or groups to order

Yield Returns:
