Rspec error: undefined method `get’

Posted on November 13, 2014

You may have upgraded Rspec recently. Or perhaps a new team member joined, ran bundle and couldn’t run any controller tests.

The upgrade to Rspec 3 threw a number of us for a loop. Shockingly it wasn’t the hard switch from should to expect syntax (although I cried a bit while shoulda matchers were being fixed).

In fact, it was that the Rspec DSL doesn’t do quite so much magic. It doesn’t figure out that you’re in a controller test and give you get or post. In fact, it doesn’t figure out you are in a model or view either.

You may have seen an error that looked something like this:

Never fear, Rebecca is here!

Actually, it’s all in the Relish documentation.

Simply add this to your spec_helper.rb or rails_helper.rb file:

You’re welcome. ♥
