Capybara PhantomJs Poltergeist Rspec Tips

railsMarch 09, 2014Dotby Justin Gordon

I've added a page of tips on integration (aka feature spec) testing using Capybara, PhantomJs, Poltergeist, and Rspec.

Some of the tips include:

  1. Favorite test configuration (gems, spechelper, etc.) for feature specs.
  2. How to troubleshoot and debug feature specs
  3. My setup for using Zeus with parallel-tests, including a rake task for setting up the databases.
  4. Tricky testing:
    1. Auto-complete dropdowns (some handy utility methods).
    2. Hover effects (easy now!)
    3. AJAX

I'll try to keep this page of tips updated as my test configuration evolves.
