Run RSpec as a Rake task

27 Dec 2011


This is the first time I tried to run my Rspec tests as a rake task. I found this way after lots of googling since it's most results point to outdated information. I tried this with rspec-2.7.0 gem.  Here I assume that you already wrote the rspec tests, now you just need to know how to run those tests as rake tasks.

Here we go.
  1. Create a Rakefile
  2. Copy and paste the code below.
  3. Use task :default  => :spec only if you want to run rspec rask as the default task.
  4. execute the rake command. (rake/bundle exec rake)
