Creating run/debug configurations 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

  1. 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.

  2. From the context menu of the selection, choose Create <name> for an individual test, or Create "All in: <container>". For your convenience, the corresponding context menu commands are marked with icons:

    • Test Unit icon for Test::Unit

    • RSpec icon for RSpec

    • Cucumber test icon for Cucumber

    For a test method, open the class in the editor and right click anywhere in the method. The context menu suggests the command Create <method name>.

  3. In the dialog 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.
