Test meta-refresh redirects with Cucumber

The step definition below allows you to write:

Then I should see an HTML redirect to "" in the page head


Then /^I should see an HTML redirect to "([^\"]*)" in the page head$/ do |redirect_url| page.should have_xpath("//meta[@http-equiv=\"refresh\" and contains(@content, \"#{redirect_url}\")]") end

To find meta tags with Capybara, you can also use page.find('meta', visible: false).

Your development team has a full backlog of feature requests, chores and refactoring coupled with deadlines? We are familiar with that. With our "DevOps as a Service" offering, we support developer teams with infrastructure and operations expertise.
