Use CSS attribute selectors with Capybara

You can use CSS attribute selectors in your step definitions like this:

Copy
Then /^the page should have a meta description "([^"]+)"$/ do |description| page.should have_css("meta[name=\"description\"][content=\"#{description}\"]") end

Note that you need to always quote attribute values or you will get a Nokogiri parsing error like this:

Copy
unexpected 'foo' after 'equal' (Nokogiri::CSS::SyntaxError)

Once an application no longer requires constant development, it needs periodic maintenance for stable and secure operation. makandra offers monthly maintenance contracts that let you focus on your business while we make sure the lights stay on.
