Navigating Between Test and Test Subject
Testing support in RubyMine provides the ability to navigate between a test and the test subject.
When navigating from a test subject to the associated tests in a Rails application, RubyMine looks for candidates among all similar elements. For example, if you try to navigate from a controller action to its test, RubyMine will show tests for the controller, helper, and view:
In the other contexts, RubyMine looks for candidates across the whole project, among all files whose names match one of the following patterns:
rspecgem is attached)
RubyMine starts searching for candidates in the immediate vicinity of the source file, and then on the similar relative paths. For example, if a class and its test reside in the same directory, the navigation will be performed between them; however, if a class and its tests are located in different places, RubyMine will look for similar relative paths:
