Error for Friendly Forwarding tests

Hi,

I followed the examples in Ruby on Rails 3 Tutorial, chap 10.2.3 Friendly Forwarding. When I ran the tests for Listing 10.16, the following error appeared:

D:\rails_projects\sample_app>bundle exec rspec spec/
No DRb server is running. Running in local process instead ...
You must 'gem install win32console' to use colour on Windows
.....................................................................F............

Failures:
1) FriendlyForwardings should forward to the requested page after signin
Failure/Error: response.should render_template('users/edit')
Expected block to return true value.
# (eval):2:in `assert_block'
# ./spec/requests/friendly_forwardings_spec.rb:11:in `block (2 levels) in '

Finished in 8.63 seconds
82 examples, 1 failure

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I veriftied every line but still couldn't figure what went wrong. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Michael

  • I was getting the exact same error.

    1. Check your sessions_helper.rb
    2. Make sure deny_access and redirect_back_or are above 'private'
    3. Make sure store_location and clear_return_to are under 'private

    .
    .
    .
    def deny_access
    store_location
    redirect_to signin_path, :notice => "Please sign in to access this page."
    end

    def redirect_back_or(default)
    redirect_to(session[:return_to] || default)
    clear_return_to
    end

    private

    def user_from_remember_token
    User.authenticate_with_salt(*remember_token)

    end

    def remember_token
    cookies.signed[:remember_token] || [nil, nil]

    end

    def store_location
    session[:return_to] = request.fullpath
    end

    def clear_return_to
    session[:return_to] = nil
    end

    end

    Good day Karl,
    I followed up your instructions, however after autotest, this failure is still existed.

    The unique work around which I amended this syntax:

    response.should render_template('users/edit')
    #to
    response.should render_template('users/show')


    It did worked without any failure, any idea?

    Here the completed failure message from autotest is:


    FriendlyForwardings
    should forward to the requested page after signin (FAILED - 1)

    Failures:

    1) FriendlyForwardings should forward to the requested page after signin
