Taking screenshots in Capybara

Capybara-screenshot can automatically save screenshots and the HTML for failed Capybara tests in Cucumber, RSpec or Minitest.

Requires Capybara-Webkit, Selenium or poltergeist for making screenshots. They're saved into $APPLICATION_ROOT/tmp/capybara

The attached files contain config for cucumber integration and a Then show me a screenshot step.

Including assets for prettier presentation

Make sure to add this to config/environments/test.rb

# Do not generate digests for assets URLs. config.assets.digest = false

and to features/support/capybara.rb:

# Have HTML screenshot render with assets (while `b rails s` is running) Capybara.asset_host = 'http://localhost:3000'
