RSpec::RedisHelper

This module will help you write specs which use Redis. It sets up two Redis connections. It also clears out Redis between examples. It uses db 1 on localhost by default.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'rspec-redis_helper'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install rspec-redis_helper

Usage

Configure RSpec in your support or helper file like so:

RSpec.configure do |spec|
  spec.include RSpec::RedisHelper, redis: true

  # clean the Redis database around each run
  # @see https://www.relishapp.com/rspec/rspec-core/docs/hooks/around-hooks
  spec.around( :each, redis: true ) do |example|
    with_clean_redis do
      example.run
    end
  end
end

You will also need to configure your app to use one of these redis connections, or to be initialized from RSpec::RedisHelper::CONFIG.

Then mark your Redis-using specs with redis: true, like so:

describe MyApp, redis: true do
  it "has access to redis" do
    redis.should_not be_nil
  end
end
