Includes:
Module.new, 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(:example) {  :authorized }
  c.around(:example) { |ex| Database.transaction(&ex) }
end

Instance Attribute Details

- (Boolean) color

Deprecated.

No longer recommended because of complex behavior. Instead, rely on the fact that TTYs will display color by default, or set #color_mode to :on to display color on a non-TTY output.

Enables color output if the output is a TTY. As of RSpec 3.6, this is the default behavior and this option is retained only for backwards compatibility.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

See Also:

  • color_mode
  • color_enabled?


803
804
805
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 803

def color
  value_for(:color) { @color }
end

- (Boolean) color_mode

The mode for determining whether to display output in color. One of:

  • :automatic - the output will be in color if the output is a TTY (the default)
  • :on - the output will be in color, whether or not the output is a TTY
  • :off - the output will not be in color

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

See Also:

  • color_enabled?

add_setting :profile_examples

- (Array<String>) project_source_dirs

Specifies which directories contain the source code for your project. When a failure occurs, RSpec looks through the backtrace to find a a line of source to print. It first looks for a line coming from one of the project source directories so that, for example, it prints the expectation or assertion call rather than the source code from the expectation or assertion framework.

Returns:

  • (Array<String>)


263
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 263

add_setting :project_source_dirs

- (void) requires

Run all examples if none match the configured filters (default: false).



275
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 275

add_setting :run_all_when_everything_filtered

- (:trigger_inclusion, :apply_to_host_groups) shared_context_metadata_behavior - (void) shared_context_metadata_behavior=(value)

Configures how RSpec treats metadata passed as part of a shared example group definition. For example, given this shared example group definition:

RSpec.shared_context "uses DB", :db => true do
  around(:example) do |ex|
    MyORM.transaction(:rollback => true, &ex)
  end
end

...there are two ways RSpec can treat the :db => true metadata, each of which has a corresponding config option:

  1. :trigger_inclusion: this shared context will be implicitly included in any groups (or examples) that have :db => true metadata.
  2. :apply_to_host_groups: the metadata will be inherited by the metadata hash of all host groups and examples.

:trigger_inclusion is the legacy behavior from before RSpec 3.5 but should be considered deprecated. Instead, you can explicitly include a group with include_context:

RSpec.describe "My model" do
  include_context "uses DB"
end

...or you can configure RSpec to include the context based on matching metadata using an API that mirrors configured module inclusion:

RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.include_context "uses DB", :db => true
end

:apply_to_host_groups is a new feature of RSpec 3.5 and will be the only supported behavior in RSpec 4.

Overloads:

  • - (:trigger_inclusion, :apply_to_host_groups) shared_context_metadata_behavior

    Returns the configured behavior

    Returns:

    • (:trigger_inclusion, :apply_to_host_groups)

      the configured behavior

  • - (void) shared_context_metadata_behavior=(value)

    Parameters:

    • value (:trigger_inclusion, :apply_to_host_groups)

      sets the configured behavior



376
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 376

define_reader :shared_context_metadata_behavior

- (void) silence_filter_announcements

Don't print filter info i.e. "Run options: include :focus=>true" (default false).



322
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 322

add_setting :silence_filter_announcements

- (void) success_color

Color to use to indicate success.

Parameters:

  • color (Symbol)

    defaults to :green but can be set to one of the following: [:black, :white, :red, :green, :yellow, :blue, :magenta, :cyan]



282
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 282

add_setting :success_color

- (void) threadsafe

Use threadsafe options where available. Currently this will place a mutex around memoized values such as let blocks.

Instance Method Details

- (void) add_formatter(formatter) - (void) add_formatter(formatter, output) Also known as: formatter=

Adds a formatter to the set RSpec will use for this run.

Parameters:

  • formatter (Class, String)

    formatter to use. Can be any of the string values supported from the CLI (p/progress, d/doc/documentation, h/html, or j/json) or any class that implements the formatter protocol and has registered itself with RSpec as a formatter.

  • output (String, IO) (defaults to: output_wrapper)

    where the formatter will write its output. Can be an IO object or a string path to a file. If not provided, the configured output_stream ($stdout, by default) will be used.

879
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 877

def add_formatter(formatter, output=output_wrapper)
  formatter_loader.add(formatter, output)
end

- (void) add_setting(name) - (void) 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])

    add_setting(name, opts)
  end
  __send__("#{name}=", default) if default
end

- (void) after(scope = nil, *meta, &block) Also known as: prepend_after

Defines a after hook. See Hooks#after for full docs.

This method differs from Hooks#after in only one way: it supports the :suite scope. Hooks with the :suite scope will be run once after the last example of the entire suite is executed.

  end || begin
    add_hook_to_existing_matching_groups(meta, scope) { |g| g.after(scope, *meta, &block) }
    super(scope, *meta, &block)
  end
end

- (void) alias_example_group_to(new_name, *args)

Note:

The defined aliased will also be added to the top level (e.g. main and from within modules) if expose_dsl_globally is set to true.

Creates a method that defines an example group with the provided metadata. Can be used to define example group/metadata shortcuts.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.alias_example_group_to :describe_model, :type => :model
end

shared_context_for "model tests", :type => :model do
  # define common model test helper methods, `let` declarations, etc
end

# This lets you do this:

RSpec.describe_model User do
end

# ... which is the equivalent of

RSpec.describe User, :type => :model do
end

def alias_example_group_to(new_name, *args)
  extra_options = Metadata.build_hash_from(args)
  RSpec::Core::ExampleGroup.define_example_group_method(new_name, extra_options)
end

- (void) alias_example_to(name, *args)

Note:

The specific example alias below (pending) is already defined for you.

Note:

Use with caution. This extends the language used in your specs, but does not add any additional documentation. We use this in RSpec to define methods like focus and xit, but we also add docs for those methods.

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

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.alias_example_to :pending, :pending => true
end

# 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

Parameters:

  • name (String)

    example name alias

  • args (Array<Symbol>, Hash)

    metadata for the generated example

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

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

Note:

Use with caution. This extends the language used in your specs, but does not add any additional documentation. We use this in RSpec to define it_should_behave_like (for backward compatibility), but we also add docs for that method.

Define an alias for it_should_behave_like that allows different language (like "it_has_behavior" or "it_behaves_like") to be employed when including shared examples.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.alias_it_behaves_like_to(:it_has_behavior, 'has behavior:')
end

# 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

- (void) append_after(scope = nil, *meta, &block)

Adds block to the end of the list of after blocks in the same scope (:example, :context, or :suite), in contrast to #after, which adds the hook to the start of the list.

See Hooks#after for full after hook docs.

This method differs from Hooks#append_after in only one way: it supports the :suite scope. Hooks with the :suite scope will be run once after the last example of the entire suite is executed.

  super(scope, *meta, &block)
end

- (void) backtrace_exclusion_patterns

Regexps used to exclude lines from backtraces.

Excludes lines from ruby (and jruby) source, installed gems, anything in any "bin" directory, and any of the RSpec libs (outside gem installs) by default.

You can modify the list via the getter, or replace it with the setter.

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

- (void) before(scope = nil, *meta, &block) Also known as: append_before

Defines a before hook. See Hooks#before for full docs.

This method differs from Hooks#before in only one way: it supports the :suite scope. Hooks with the :suite scope will be run once before the first example of the entire suite is executed.

886
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 884

def default_formatter
  formatter_loader.default_formatter
end

- (void) default_formatter=(value)

Sets a fallback formatter to use if none other has been set.

Examples:


RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.default_formatter = 'doc'
end

- (void) define_derived_metadata(*filters) {|metadata| ... }

Defines a callback that can assign derived metadata values.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  # Tag all groups and examples in the spec/unit directory with
  # :type => :unit
  config.(:file_path => %r{/spec/unit/}) do ||
    [:type] = :unit
  end
end

Parameters:

  • filters (Array<Symbol>, Hash)

    metadata filters that determine which example or group metadata hashes the callback will be triggered for. If none are given, the callback will be run against the metadata hashes of all groups and examples.

Yield Parameters:

  • metadata (Hash)

    original metadata hash from an example or group. Mutate this in your block as needed.

Returns:

  • (IO, String)

    IO or filename to write to

end

- (void) disable_monkey_patching!

Note:

It configures rspec-mocks and rspec-expectations only if the user is using those (either explicitly or implicitly by not setting mock_with or expect_with to anything else).

Note:

If the user uses this options with mock_with :mocha (or similiar) they will still have monkey patching active in their test environment from mocha.

Enables zero monkey patching mode for RSpec. It removes monkey patching of the top-level DSL methods (describe, shared_examples_for, etc) onto main and Module, instead requiring you to prefix these methods with RSpec.. It enables expect-only syntax for rspec-mocks and rspec-expectations. It simply disables monkey patching on whatever pieces of RSpec the user is using.

Examples:


# It disables all monkey patching.
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.disable_monkey_patching!
end

# Is an equivalent to
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.expose_dsl_globally = false

  config.mock_with :rspec do |mocks|
    mocks.syntax = :expect
    mocks.patch_marshal_to_support_partial_doubles = false
  end

  config.expect_with :rspec do |expectations|
    expectations.syntax = :expect

# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 1250

def exclusion_filter

def exclusion_filter=(filter)
  meta = Metadata.build_hash_from([filter], :warn_about_example_group_filtering)
  filter_manager.exclude_only meta
end

- (void) 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

- (void) 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

- (void) 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

- (void) filter_gems_from_backtrace(*gem_names)

Note:

The patterns this adds will match the named gems in their common locations (e.g. system gems, vendored with bundler, installed as a :git dependency with bundler, etc) but is not guaranteed to work for all possible gem locations. For example, if you have the gem source in a directory with a completely unrelated name, and use bundler's :path option, this will not filter it.

Adds #backtrace_exclusion_patterns that will filter lines from the named gems from backtraces.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.filter_gems_from_backtrace "rack", "rake"
end

Parameters:

  • gem_names (Array<String>)

    Names of the gems to filter

    @backtrace_formatter.filter_gem(name)
  end
end

- (void) filter_run_excluding(*args)

Adds key/value pairs to the exclusion_filter. If args includes any symbols that are not part of the 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'}

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

end

- (void) filter_run_including(*args) Also known as: filter_run

Adds key/value pairs to the inclusion_filter. If args includes any symbols that are not part of the 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'}

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

  filter_manager.include_with_low_priority meta
  static_config_filter_manager.include_with_low_priority Metadata.deep_hash_dup(meta)
end

- (void) filter_run_when_matching(*args)

Applies the provided filter only if any of examples match, in constrast to #filter_run, which always applies even if no examples match, in which case no examples will be run. This allows you to leave configured filters in place that are intended only for temporary use. The most common example is focus filtering: config.filter_run_when_matching :focus. With that configured, you can temporarily focus an example or group by tagging it with :focus metadata, or prefixing it with an f (as in fdescribe, fcontext and fit) since those are aliases for describe/context/it with :focus metadata.

- (void) format_docstrings(&block)

Formats the docstring output using the block provided.

Examples:

# This will strip the descriptions of both examples and example
# groups.
RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.format_docstrings { |s| s.strip }
end

end

- (Array) formatters

Note as this is a duplicate, any mutations will be disregarded.

Returns:

  • (Array)

    the formatters currently loaded

Parameters:

  • description (String, Regexp)

    the pattern to filter on



853
854
855
# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 853

def full_description=(description)
  filter_run :full_description => Regexp.union(*Array(description).map { |d| Regexp.new(d) })
end

- (void) include(mod, *filters)

Note:

Filtered module inclusions can also be applied to individual examples that have matching metadata. Just like Ruby's object model is that every object has a singleton class which has only a single instance, RSpec's model is that every example has a singleton example group containing just the one example.

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 or examples 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 groups
  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'

- (void) include_context(shared_group_name, *filters)

Note:

Filtered context inclusions can also be applied to individual examples that have matching metadata. Just like Ruby's object model is that every object has a singleton class which has only a single instance, RSpec's model is that every example has a singleton example group containing just the one example.

Tells RSpec to include the named shared example group in example groups. Use filters to constrain the groups or examples in which to include the example group.

Examples:


RSpec.shared_context "example users" do
  let(:admin_user) { create_user(:admin) }
  let(:guest_user) { create_user(:guest) }
end

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.include_context "example users", :type => :request
end

RSpec.describe "The admin page", :type => :request do
  it "can be viewed by admins" do
     admin_user
    get "/admin"
    expect(response).to be_ok
  end

  it "cannot be viewed by guests" do
     guest_user

# File 'lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb', line 564

def mock_framework=(framework)
  mock_with framework
end

- (void) 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 if the example hasn't yet failed.
    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

end

- (void) on_example_group_definition_callbacks

This method is part of a private API. You should avoid using this method if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Returns an array of blocks to call before defining an example group

- (void) order=

Sets the default global ordering strategy. By default this can be one of :defined, :random, but is customizable through the register_ordering API. If order is set to 'rand:<seed>', the seed will also be set.

- (void) prepend(mod, *filters)

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

Similar to include, but module is included before the example group's class in the ancestor chain.

Examples:


module OverrideMod
  def override_me
    "overridden"
  end
end

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.prepend(OverrideMod, :method => :prepend)
end

describe "overriding example's class", :method => :prepend do
  it "finds the user" do
    self.class.class_eval do
      def override_me
      end
    end
    override_me # => "overridden"
    # ...
  end
end

  end
end

- (void) prepend_before(scope = nil, *meta, &block)

Adds block to the start of the list of before blocks in the same scope (:example, :context, or :suite), in contrast to #before, which adds the hook to the end of the list.

See Hooks#before for full before hook docs.

This method differs from Hooks#prepend_before in only one way: it supports the :suite scope. Hooks with the :suite scope will be run once before the first example of the entire suite is executed.

- (void) raise_errors_for_deprecations!

Turns deprecation warnings into errors, in order to surface the full backtrace of the call site. This can be useful when you need more context to address a deprecation than the single-line call site normally provided.

Examples:


RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.raise_errors_for_deprecations!
end

  self.deprecation_stream = Formatters::DeprecationFormatter::RaiseErrorStream.new
end

- (void) raise_on_warning=(value)

Turns warnings into errors. This can be useful when you want RSpec to run in a 'strict' no warning situation.

Examples:


RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.raise_on_warning = true
end

    RSpec::Support.warning_notifier = RAISE_ERROR_WARNING_NOTIFIER
  else
    RSpec::Support.warning_notifier = RSpec::Support::DEFAULT_WARNING_NOTIFIER
  end
end

- (void) register_ordering {|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.

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.

Examples:

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

RSpec.describe 'MyClass', :order => :reverse do
  # ...
end
RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.register_ordering :global do |examples|
    acceptance, other = examples.partition do |example|
      example.[:type] == :acceptance
    end
    other + acceptance
  end
end

RSpec.describe 'MyClass', :type => :acceptance do
  # will run last
end

RSpec.describe 'MyClass' do
  # will run first
end

Parameters:

  • name (Symbol)

    The name of the ordering.

Yields:

  • Block that will order the given examples or example groups

end

- (void) seed

Seed for random ordering (default: generated randomly each run).

When you run specs with --order random, RSpec generates a random seed for the randomization and prints it to the output_stream (assuming you're using RSpec's built-in formatters). If you discover an ordering dependency (i.e. examples fail intermittently depending on order), set this (on Configuration or on the command line with --seed) to run using the same seed while you debug the issue.

We recommend, actually, that you use the command line approach so you don't accidentally leave the seed encoded.

- (void) when_first_matching_example_defined(*filters, &block)

Defines a callback that runs after the first example with matching metadata is defined. If no examples are defined with matching metadata, it will not get called at all.

This can be used to ensure some setup is performed (such as bootstrapping a DB or loading a specific file that adds significantly to the boot time) if needed (as indicated by the presence of an example with matching metadata) but avoided otherwise.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.when_first_matching_example_defined(:db) do
    # Load a support file that does some heavyweight setup,
    # including bootstrapping the DB, but only if we have loaded
    # any examples tagged with `:db`.
    require 'support/db'
  end
