Working As Intended

rspec, Rails 3, and missing rake tasks

August 23rd 2011

I was setting up a fresh Rails 3 app and the following bit me.

$ rake spec:models
rake aborted!
Don't know how to build task 'spec:models'

After some head scratching and a closer look at the docs, I realized that I had forgotten to add the rspec-rails gem to my development environment. I had it in only the test and cucumber environments. Seems like an odd thing to do, but it lets you run the various rake tasks in dev.

In Gemfile:

group :development, :test, :cucumber do
  gem "rspec-rails"
