Hi folks,

I'm using minitest with capybara to write my integration tests. I'm attempting to test the sign up process, where a user goes to a form, inputs their info and clicks sign-up, which will in turn save them to the db. In rspec, I could do something like this:

def test_method
  fill out form

  expect do
    click_button "Save"
  end.to change(User, :count).by(1)
end


What would be the equivalent of the expect statement in minitest, and more importantly, where can I find this information? I have gone through the docs but can't seem to find documentation that could help me get to here from them

Thanks in advance!!

I'm working on improving the documentation for the assertions in rails and hope to cut a new release this weekend. The assertion you are looking for is assert_difference.




​This assertion comes from rails and is not something minitest-rails adds. It's documented in minitest-rails only so all the methods are documented in the same place.

The must_change and wont_change  expectations shown in the documentation will be added in the next release.
