#222 awaiting-patch

webrat/selenium should support testing apps at sub urls

Reported by Jason | April 17th, 2009 @ 12:34 PM

I just sent a pull request from my fork on github (http://github.com/jason-o-matic/... that adds support for using selenium with rails apps at sub urls.

This lets you do:

Webrat.configure do |config|
  config.mode = :selenium
  # ...
  config.application_relative_url_root = "/myapp"
  # ...

So, as long as you have ActionController's relative_url_root option set appropriately you can test your app in a more production-like setting.

    Jason, The url you attached gives me a not found on github.

    Also, does this work change normal webrat mode at all?

    I see, looks like my ending paren got attached to the url.


    This change doesn't change normal webrat mode, it just allows you to specify the --prefix option to mongrel_rails when selenium testing.

    • State changed from “open” to “awaiting-patch”

    So For this we'll need the thin application server and the patch from Jason above, correct?
