What generates articles_index_path ?
I am porting some Rails 4 code to Rails 5 and I hit the following problem when using Rspec: articles_index_path is undefined.
root to: “articles#index”
In /home/real-estate-data-mining/spec/requests/article_spec.rb I have
RSpec.describe “Article”, type: :request do
describe “GET /article” do
it "works! (now write some real specs)" do byebug # get article_index_path get articles_index_path expect(response).to have_http_status(200) end
When I examine the code environment around the byebug I see
[3, 12] in /home/real-estate-data-mining/spec/requests/article_spec.rb
3: RSpec.describe "Article", type: :request do 4: describe "GET /article" do 5: it "works! (now write some real specs)" do 6: byebug 7: # get article_index_path
=> 8: get articles_index_path
9: expect(response).to have_http_status(200)
*** NameError Exception: undefined local variable or method `articles_index_path’ for #RSpec::ExampleGroups::Article_2::GETArticle:0x00563031a8a0e0
*** NameError Exception: undefined local variable or method `article_index_path’ for #RSpec::ExampleGroups::Article_2::GETArticle:0x00563031a8a0e0
This must be a common software pattern in Rails but, damn, I have Googled for what feels like a googol (it’s not a typo) hours without success trying to find what metaprogramming code would generate articles_index_path .
