I created a ticket to deprecate should_be_restful:

What's the reaction by the community?

I couldn't agree more. It simply doesn't gel with the spirit of BDD.

I agree with your points, Dan, however, for those of us that use restful controller abstractions, I'm not sure they're relevant.

When you get your whole controller in one line, it makes sense to get your tests in a few lines too.

So, if this is removed, it'd be nice to push it out in to a separate gem, or something, for that purpose.

I hear that, James. Is Sean Hussey lurking around anywhere? He came up with a fantastic name for macros that aren't in "shoulda core":


If he's amenable, perhaps the "woulda" gem would be a good home for should_be_restful.

I agree with this. It's fantastic to be able to test all your actions
in one line. I use it a lot and would be very sad if it went away
completely.
