Last week we talked about managing multiple Pythons using pyenv.
But still we are lacking something like the Gemfile in Ruby for managing the version of those Python packages in a Python project. And here comes the Python virtualenv.
We can create different virtualenv on the same machine and each of them has its own Python binary, the pip package and the all other standard Python libraries needed to run the Python. In other words, each virtualenv acts like the Gemfile in a particular Python project.

When running the test cases, most likely we need some mock data to test the functionality of our code. The factory_girl_rails gem is useful for creating mock data for testing purpose. Continue reading Rails – Create Mock Data for RSpec
I am still continuing the tutorial @ Ruby on Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl
Last time we have integrated the RSpec and Autotest in Rails 3.
Rails – Integrate Autotest and RSpec in Linux
But it seems that it takes quite long for RSpec to complete the tests. This is because RSpec reloads the entire Rails environment for each run. Spork Test Server helps you preloading the Rails environment which greatly reduces the time for running the test suite.
1. Add the spork gem in the Gemfile Continue reading Rails – Running RSpec with Spork Test Server
I am learning Rails 3 @ Ruby on Rails Tutorial by Michael Hartl. A very nice and detail tutorial with many examples for beginners. Highly recommended.
But i got some problems when i tried to setup the Autotest for the RSpec framework. Autotest is a continuous testing tool which run the test suite automatically based on the files you have changed. RSpec is a Behavior Driven Development (BDD) framework for Ruby. After a few hours of struggling, i finally made it work.
1. Create a new Rails project without the default Test::Unit framework.
