First, it was great meeting a bunch of you at RailsConf.
Recently I've run into a problem using RSpec, namely its support for
multiple mocking frameworks. Wait you say, isn't that a good thing?
Yes, it is until you end up mixing frameworks.
I was writing my latest app, and I choose to get the app working and
then add in the authentication system. So I went and wrote all my test
using Mocha, and everything was all peachy. Then I went to github and
got the latest version of restful_authentication. To the console,
"script/generated authenticated user sessions --rspec", and run the
It turns out that Rick Olson wrote all the specs for RESTful
Authentication using RSpec's built-in mocking, and that didn't play
nicely with Mocha being declared in the spec.opts file.
I think it would be nice to be able to set a mock framework per
example group or spec file.
I'll grab a fork and start looking at it, but if you have any
suggestions, they'd be greatly appreciated.
