Creating Run/Debug Configuration for Tests
You can execute your test scripts or features using run/debug configurations, in the way similar to running ordinary applications. RubyMine provides a framework for creating special run/debug configurations for testing purposes, where a test can be specified as a target.
In addition to the regular procedure described in the section Creating and Editing Run/Debug Configuration, RubyMine provides a shortcut that allows you to create run/debug configurations for all tests in a container, for a single test case, or even for a test method.
Creating a test configuration
To create a test configuration
- Right-click the desired target, for example a directory or an individual test in the Project tool window. In case of an individual test, you can open it in the editor, and right-click the background.
- On the context menu of the selection, choose
for an individual test, or . For your convenience, the corresponding context menu commands are marked with icons:
- for Test::Unit.
- for RSpec.
- for Test-Spec.
- for Cucumber.
- In the dialog box that opens, specify the run/debug configuration parameters, apply changes and close the dialog.
Ctrl+Space code completion works in run/debug configuration dialog boxes, for example in the Working directory field.
