Topic: RSpec vs Baked in Testing
I've been using Rails on and off for about 18 months now, mostly to develop simple intranet apps. I'm getting ready to attempt larger apps and maybe some websites. Up until now I have not used any kind of testing. I completely agree that it is essential and I want to do it from this point on in all my projects.
Having said that, what is RSpec? Without looking into it at all I assumed that it was a compliment to the existing Rails tests. I did a little reading about it today and now I'm starting to think that it's an alternative to Rails tests. Is that true? If so, am I better off spending my time learning RSpec? Right now I know very little about RSpec and Rails tests. I would like to just learn one at first and have that be the one that will help me most.
Thanks for your thoughts.
