Rspec. assert_select deprecated?

In https://apidock.com/rails/ActionController/Assertions/SelectorAssertions/assert_select I see that assert_select was deprecated.

Yes, when I run
rails generate scaffold SqlStatement
title:text{120}
description:text
sql_stmt:text

``

I find the following code generated in ~/spec/views/sql_statements/index.html.erb_spec.rb
require ‘rails_helper’

RSpec.describe “sql_statements/index”, type: :view do
before(:each) do
assign(:sql_statements, [
SqlStatement.create!(
:title => “MyText”,
:description => “MyText”,
:sql_stmt => “MyText”
),
SqlStatement.create!(
:title => “MyText”,
:description => “MyText”,
:sql_stmt => “MyText”
)
])
end

it “renders a list of sql_statements” do
render
byebug
assert_select “tr>td”, :text => “MyText”.to_s, :count => 2
assert_select “tr>td”, :text => “MyText”.to_s, :count => 2
assert_select “tr>td”, :text => “MyText”.to_s, :count => 2
end
end

I find no mention of assert_select in http://rspec.info/documentation/3.6/rspec-rails/

I find assert_select defined in ~/.rbenv/versions/2.4.1/lib/ruby/gems/2.4.0/gems/rails-dom-testing-2.0.3/lib/rails/dom/testing/assertions/selector_assertions.rb .

What am I not understanding?

So is it deprecated? What’s it replaced by? Where can I find documentation?

apidock things things are deprecated when they move - it doesn’t know it was extracted into the rails-dom-testing gem

The rails specific assertions aren’t part of rspec-rails (you can still use them because rspec-rails wraps the rails testing facilities). ALthough rspec doesn’t really care what assertion library you use, I’ve more commonly seen people use the capybara rspec matches in such cases (expect(rendered).to have_css(‘tr>td’, count: 2, …)

So … where can I find current documentation on assert_select?

Is assert_select an Rspec facility or a wrapper around some other facility I need to learn?

If it isn’t apparent, Fred, thank you.

It was extracted from rails into the rails-dom-testing gem, so I would start with https://github.com/rails/rails-dom-testing/blob/master/README.md
