Add a "context" Block to Rails Tests
I’ve been ranting for awhile now on how hard it is to organize your
tests in rails using its default test framework. Meaning it doesn’t
describe block like shoulda or rspec
Although recently I think I found the solution. Randomly looking around the devise library code, I found this little snippet that adds “context” blocks to the default test framework so its easier to organize your tests.
Here’s an example:
```ruby class SampleTest < ActiveSupport::TestCase # # This method lets us add “context” blocks in our tests # def self.context(name, &block) instance_eval(&block) end
# We can then use the context block… context “When saving” do test “should validate name” do # … end end end ```
So there you go. A quick way of adding
context blocks to Rails.
