Rspec-rails is a testing framework

Setup in your project:

Use rspec command to run the spec

By default the above will run all _spec.rb files in the spec directory


  • Model Spec
  • Controller Spec
  • Feature Spec
  • View Spec
  • Routing Spec
  • Helper Spec
Feature Spec

Feature specs, a kind of acceptance test, are high-level tests that walk through your entire application ensuring that each of the components work together.

An example

The feature test can be done by using capyabara.

Capybara helps you test web applications by simulating how a real user would interact with your app.

Adding Capybara in rails project:

Require capyabara.rails in spec_helper.rb

To run test via capybara gem 'selenium-webdriver' is required.
