Silencing Deprecation Warnings in Rspec

If you’re testing the behavior of deprecated code in your Ruby project, the warning messages littered throughout your spec output is incredibly noisy.

You could silence all warnings with ::ActiveSupport::Deprecation.silenced = true, but you might miss out on an important warning in one of your dependencies. It’s tempting to remove the tests altogether (the code will be burned soon too, right?), but I figured out something a little nicer a little while back in Formtastic’s test suite.

Your development team has a full backlog of feature requests, chores and refactoring coupled with deadlines? We are familiar with that. With our "DevOps as a Service" offering, we support developer teams with infrastructure and operations expertise.
