Running RSpec in dry mode and RSpec formatters

Outline:

  1. Cloning of repository and building app
  2. RSpec in dry-run mode
  3. RSpec formatters
  4. Custom formatters

Cloning and building the app

repo_url = "github.com/#{repo.owner}/#{repo.name}.git"
system "git clone https://#{access_token}@#{repo_url}"

Cloning and building the app

Run bundle inside the cloned application directory as below?

./bin/bundle install

Where gems are extracted?

We can not interfere in the main app environment !!!

Cloning and building the app

Are you sure bundle uses the correct Gemfile and installs gems for appropriate applications?

./bin/bundle install --path path/to/extracted/gems

NOT !!!

Bundle uses Gemfile from the main app

Bundle installs gems for the main app

Cloning and building the app

Bundle uses correct Gemfile


Bundle installs gems for the main app

./bin/bundle install --path path/to/extracted/gems 
   --gemfile path/to/Gemfile

Cloning and building the app

SOLUTION:

Bundler.with_clean_env do
  FileUtils.cd("#{Rails.root}/path/to/gh_repository") do
    system "./bin/bundle install --path path/to/extracted/gems"
  end
end

RSpec in dry-run mode

RSpec in dry-run mode

Use the --dry-run option to have RSpec print your suite's formatter output without running any examples or hooks."

RSpec in dry-run mode

Bundler.with_clean_env do
  FileUtils.cd("#{Rails.root}/path/to/gh_repository") do
    System "./bin/bundle exec rspec spec --dry-run"
  end
end

RSpec requires a current database also in dry-run mode, but it does not use its !!!

Migrations are pending. To resolve this issue, run:

   bin/rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=test

Is the creation of a database specifically for this reason it is reasonable?

Of course
NOT !!!


 

SOLUTION:

# support_for_rspec.rb

module ActiveRecord
  class Migration
    def self.maintain_test_schema!
      true
    end
  end
end
./bin/bundle exec rspec spec --dry-run 
  --require path/to/support_for_rspec.rb

Result:

  •  RSpec runs the tests and displays it in the default format

Problems to be solved:

  •  create a formatter, which adapts the RSpec output to our needs
  • intercept output stream

Formatters in RSpec

--format option

  • progress - default
    output: ....F.....*....
  • documentation (group and example names)
    output:
      something
          does something that passes
          does something that fails (FAILED - 1)
          does something that is pending (PENDING: Not Yet Implemented
  • html
  • json
    output:

     
 { "examples": [
    {
      "description": "should require title to be set",
      "full_description": "Article validations should require title to be set",

    },{

      "status": "passed",
      "file_path": "./spec/models/article_spec.rb",
      "line_number": 6,
      "run_time": 0.010326601
    }]

    "example_count": 2,
