Anyone have experience writing custom Rails generators? Do you test them?

I would like to experiment with writing a my own generator that I might want to eventually bundle into it's own gem. What I would like to know if it's feasible or considered best practice to write specs/ tests for your generator, and if so, any tips or examples you can point me to?

You certainly can test them, for example here are the specs for the rspec generators:


Of course! It's considered best practice to write spec/tests for *everything*! :slight_smile:


Cool, thanks a lot for the examples, I'm amazed by how clean and readable these specs are.
