Stop writing "require 'spec_helper'" in every spec

Simply add this to your .rspec instead:

Copy
--require spec_helper

If you are on rspec >= 3 and use a rails_helper.rb require this instead of the spec_helper:

Copy
--require rails_helper

If you are using parallel_tests and this is not working for you, .rspec might be ignored. Try using a .rspec_parallel file.
