Let a Rails 3 application make a request to itself

Ever wondered how Rails talks to itself in a Cucumber feature? In Rails 3 you can do it like this:

def rack_env(path) { "rack.input" => {}, "PATH_INFO"=>"#{path}", "REQUEST_METHOD"=>"GET" } end request = rack_env('/users/new') response = status, headers, body = response puts status # e.g. 200 puts headers.inspect # hash of headers puts body.body # html of response body

Instead of Rails.application you can also call any Rack application.

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.
