Rails 5 adds simple access to sample files called file fixtures. File fixtures are normal files stored in spec/fixtures/files by default.
File fixtures are represented as +Pathname+ objects. This makes it easy to extract specific information:
file_fixture("example.txt").read # get the file's content file_fixture("example.mp3").size # get the file size
You can customize files location by setting
RSpec.configure do |config|
config.file_fixture_path = "spec/custom_directory"
Reading file content from fixtures directory
And a file named “spec/fixtures/files/sample.txt” with:
And a file named “spec/lib/file_spec.rb” with:
require "rails_helper" RSpec.describe "file" do it "reads sample file" do expect(file_fixture("sample.txt").read).to eq("Hello") end end
When I run
Then the examples should all pass.
