Hello all,

I'm just starting with rspec and with ruby. I have read the examples and I can run rspec tests with "ruby my_test.rb".

Is there a way to run many tests? something like a test battery or "please run all tests in my_tests directory" ?

Is there something like "best practices" on this matter?

thank you
João

Joao,

You normally (after running `rspec --init`) add spec files under `spec` directory, and name them something like `user_spec.rb`.

And run either focused to one spec file (https://relishapp.com/rspec/rspec-core/v/3-10/docs/command-line/line-number-appended-to-file-path) with `rspec spec/my_spec.rb`, or run all your specs with just `rspec`.

All the documentation is available here http://rspec.info/documentation/
I can recommend checking the community RSpec style guide https://rspec.rubystyle.guide/
