[rspec-users] [Sinatra] "tried to create Proc object without a block"

Hello all,

I'm a long time Ruby and Rails user, but new to RSpec; I've been using
Shoulda instead.

I picked up the book "Service-Oriented Design with Ruby and
Rails" (http://amzn.to/9sgx99) which uses RSpec throughout. Despite
being published only a few months ago, it's already out of date.

Here's the gist with the relevant files: https://gist.github.com/718122
(you can see where I commented out a few lines trying to get it to

I'm guessing the book was written using RSpec 1, and some older
(unknown) version of Rack. I've got Rack-1.2.1 and RSpec-2.1.0

This is what I get when I run "rspec spec":

  1) service should return a user by name
     Failure/Error: get '/api/v1/users/jason'
     tried to create Proc object without a block
     # (__DELEGATE__):2:in `send'
     # (__DELEGATE__):2:in `get'
     # ./spec/service_spec.rb:23

I'm guessing the spec just needs a minor tweak or two to start
working, but I have no idea what that would be.

Thanks for any help you can provide,
