context blocks are used to organize your test suite and provide a clear and concise structure for your tests.
describe block is used to group related tests together and provides a description of the behavior being tested. It can be used to describe a class, module, or any other component of your application. For example:
describe MyClass do # tests go here end
context block is used to provide additional context or conditions for the tests being described. It’s often used to describe different scenarios or use cases that you want to test. For example:
describe MyClass do context "when initialized with valid arguments" do # tests for valid arguments go here end context "when initialized with invalid arguments" do # tests for invalid arguments go here end end
Here, we’re using two
context blocks to describe two different scenarios: one where the arguments passed to
MyClass are valid, and one where they’re invalid.
context blocks in your RSpec tests, you can provide a clear structure for your tests and make it easier to understand what behavior you’re testing and under what conditions.
