Defined in:
lib/rspec/expectations/configuration.rb

Overview

Provides configuration options for rspec-expectations. If you are using rspec-core, you can access this via a block passed to RSpec::Core::Configuration#expect_with. Otherwise, you can access it via RSpec::Expectations.configuration.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.expect_with :rspec do |c|
    # c is the config object
  end
end

# or

RSpec::Expectations.configuration

Constant Summary collapse

NullBacktraceFormatter =

This constant is part of a private API. You should avoid using this constant if possible, as it may be removed or be changed in the future.

Null implementation of a backtrace formatter used by default when rspec-core is not loaded. Does no filtering.

Module.new do
  def self.format_backtrace(backtrace)
    backtrace
  end

Instance Attribute Details

#backtrace_formatterObject

Sets or gets the backtrace formatter. The backtrace formatter should implement #format_backtrace(Array<String>). This is used to format backtraces of errors handled by the raise_error matcher.

If you are using rspec-core, rspec-core's backtrace formatting will be used (including respecting the presence or absence of the --backtrace option).

attr_writer :backtrace_formatter

#color=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

Indicates whether or not diffs should be colored. Delegates to rspec-core's color option if rspec-core is loaded; otherwise you can set it here.

end

#include_chain_clauses_in_custom_matcher_descriptions=(value) ⇒ Object (writeonly)

Sets if custom matcher descriptions and failure messages should include clauses from methods defined using chain.

Parameters:

  • value (Boolean)

  @include_chain_clauses_in_custom_matcher_descriptions = value
end

#on_potential_false_positivesObject

Indicates what RSpec will do about matcher use which will potentially cause false positives in tests, generally you want to avoid such scenarios so this defaults to true.

Instance Method Details

#add_should_and_should_not_to(*modules) ⇒ Object

Adds should and should_not to the given classes or modules. This can be used to ensure should works properly on things like proxy objects (particular Delegator-subclassed objects on 1.8).

Parameters:

  • modules (Array<Module>)

    the list of classes or modules to add should and should_not to.

  end
end

#color?Boolean

Indicates whether or not diffs should be colored. Delegates to rspec-core's color option if rspec-core is loaded; otherwise you can set it here.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

# File 'lib/rspec/expectations/configuration.rb', line 100

def color?
  ::RSpec.configuration.color_enabled?
end

#include_chain_clauses_in_custom_matcher_descriptions?Boolean

Indicates whether or not custom matcher descriptions and failure messages should include clauses from methods defined using chain. It is false by default for backwards compatibility.

Returns:

  • (Boolean)

def include_chain_clauses_in_custom_matcher_descriptions?

end

#max_formatted_output_length=(length) ⇒ Object

Configures the maximum character length that RSpec will print while formatting an object. You can set length to nil to prevent RSpec from doing truncation.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.expect_with :rspec do |c|
    c.max_formatted_output_length = 200
  end
end

Parameters:

  • length (Fixnum)

    the number of characters to limit the formatted output to.

#syntaxArray<Symbol>

The list of configured syntaxes.

Examples:

unless RSpec::Matchers.configuration.syntax.include?(:expect)
  raise "this RSpec extension gem requires the rspec-expectations `:expect` syntax"
end

Returns:

  • (Array<Symbol>)

    the list of configured syntaxes.

  syntaxes << :should if Expectations::Syntax.should_enabled?
  syntaxes << :expect if Expectations::Syntax.expect_enabled?
  syntaxes
end

#syntax=(values) ⇒ Object

Configures the supported syntax.

Examples:

RSpec.configure do |rspec|
  rspec.expect_with :rspec do |c|
    c.syntax = :should
    # or
    c.syntax = :expect
    # or
    c.syntax = [:should, :expect]
  end
end

Parameters:

  • values (Array<Symbol>, Symbol)

    the syntaxes to enable
