I just finished pair programming with my friend Laco who live at Barcelona. We used Skype, Collabedit and gitHub for code synchronization. I’m really tired after six hours, but I’ve good feeling about this. I hope we will continue on that soon. You can see our work here.
I started testing with Ruby. So i first use Test::Unit and then i want to test some functionality on web. I read some examples at mechanize documentation, which is here or at your ruby/gems directory. So let’s look at the code.
class LoginTest < Test::Unit::TestCase
#creating mechanize object
agent = WWW::Mechanize.new
page = agent.get(‘http://zaparka.cz/wp-login.php’)
# get first html form on page, u can use page.form(‘form_name’)
login_form = page.forms.first
#fill value <input type=”text” name=”log” /> with login name
login_form.log = ‘name’
#fill value <input name=”pwd” type=”password” /> with password
login_form.pwd = ‘secrets’
#submiting form and saving result page to value page
page = google_form.submit()
# test if login was succesflull
assert_equal ‘Dashboard ‹ Petr Zaparka — WordPress’, page.title
It’s very easy and simply. However you can’t test javasript functionality. Next time i post testing with WEBRAT.
Do you want comment more than one row ? So use multiline comment like this :
Important rule, this code must be at the begining of row.
PS: This code isn’t exactly for comments, but you can us it this way ;-)
Because I started learning Ruby on Rails I needed to run some database server for ruby. I like mysql. I developing web aplications with WAMP (Windows + Apache + Mysql + PHP). So i tried to run Ruby on Rails with pre-installed version of mysql 5.1.33 but Rails didn’t work properly. I tried to find how to fix the problem bud it seems that Ruby on Rails has some problems with mysql 5.1.33.
So i refused SQLite and PostgreSQL for my personal reasons, than only one option left, another mysql server. I downloaded mysql server 5.0. run installation and than configuration that failed in last item (security settings). But mysql server worked quite well.
I was wondering if Rails are going to accept another sqlserver. It didn’t let use say it did but i forget set different port to mysql server 5.0. So i had an idea that this port problem can cause the security problem. So i run configuaration tools set port to 3309 and click to final step and security problem appeared again.Never mind I thought. I added a line port: 3309 as you can see below,
to database.yml in config folder of my project and run rake db:create.
Rails worked fine and WAMP too :).
So in short, you only need to set a different port to run 2 mysql servers at one pc.
PS: It may occur Error mesage like:’ libmySQL.dll missing ‘ or something like that. You will fix this by copy libmySQL.dll from installed mysqlServer 5 directory (installedpath/mysql server 5.0/bin) to your ruby directory (installedpath/ruby/bin).
I has been developing Internet aplication about 9 years. In everyday work i use PHP and AJAX technology. It is quite a long time ago when my friend Ladislav Martincik told me about Ruby on Rails. I seen some amazing presentation of Rails framework he showed me. I wonder why I did not start learning and using Rails and Ruby at that time. Maby it was too early for me or maybe i was too lazy.
I starting now. I bought book Begining Ruby on Rails last week. But the book seems to me that is little confusing. So i was browsing a little and I found this cool book called ‘Poignant Guide to Ruby”. It is kind of unconventional but i love it. It is funny and very brightly written. I’m looking forward to read more chapters tomorow.
Ps: I wonder how high can insects fly, because I live at 8th floor and it still bothers me.
