Hello all,

Is there a way to ask rspec to print the path of the file from which tests are being run?

Thank you
Joao

Today, while reading the 'Effective Testing with RSpec 3' book, I found
that you can access metadata in the context level:

RSpec.describe 'My Exciting Class' do
  puts metadata

  context 'when condition' do
    it 'succeeds' do
    end
  end
end

The metadata outputs a bunch of stuff, including :file_path and
:absolute_file_path

Hope this helps.

Best Regards,
Mohit.
