A couple of small, but totally useful plugins
There are two plugins (well, one’s a gem) that I’ve been using lately which are so small that it seems silly to post about them.
…except for the fact that they’re incredibly useful.
disclaimer: these were written by friends of mine. In fact one of them was written by my boss, so this is nothing more than an obvious attempt to garner a raise.
We use this at thoughtbot to manage client expectations, but I use it for my own sites to visually remind myself when I haven’t completed part of a page.
Install this gem, configure it in your test_helper.rb, and watch as your failure backtraces shrink to just the information you need. If you’re following BDD, and trying to achieve 1 assertion per test, then this really helps unclutter your failures.
