I am building a page that has many ajax calls on the page, so when I moved to rails 2.0, I, of course, noticed that my ajax calls stopped working. After some research, I came up with the following solution.
The problem comes when I am trying to write functional tests for the these pages. For example, the following code:
def test_view_not_logged_in get :view, :id => users(:quentin).id assert_response :success end
Creates the following error:
ActionView::TemplateError: No :secret given to the #protect_from_forgery call. Set that or use a session store capable of generating its own keys (Cookie Session Store). On line #39 of account/_signup_form.rhtml
38: <% end -%> 39: <div id="form_authenticity_token" class="hidden"><%= form_authenticity_token %></div>
I am using the Cookie Session Store in my development and production environements. Is there any difference in the test environment? I could add the :secret when I do testing, but that is pretty cumbersome.
thanks in advance for any help!
