Emulate rails test methods to allow dirver independence

Reported by gaffo | November 15th, 2008 @ 11:31 PM

So what I mean by this is it would be cool if we could just wrap some of the calls like assert_tag from the rails integration test with webrat methods. It could be either the same api name or it could be a whole new api.

What this would allow is for me to do things in webrat and selenium mode totally agnostic. Eg:

clicks_link("Home") verify_tag(:span, :content => "Hello, Mike!")

    Great idea. I actually spent some time at RubyConf getting this into Webrat.

    Checkout the matchers in lib/webrat/core/matchers. They live in the Webrat::Matchers module. They are actually from Merb, and we moved them into Webrat.

    The four matchers are:


    have_tag has different semantics than Rails' have_tag, and I'm not recommending it. But if you stick with contain, have_selector and have_xpath, my plan is to make those work with Selenium.

    I'm going to close this ticket out in favor of tracking the Selenium support for these methods in #46.

    Also, if there are any bugs or feature requests for the new matchers, please don't hesitate to open separate tickets.
