Use CSS attribute selectors with Capybara

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

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:

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