More with Sinatra and Factory_girl

To add factory_girl to rspec when testing a sinatra app, you only have to do a couple of things. First off, include the following lines in spec/spec_helper.rb

  require 'factory_girl'
  Dir[File.dirname(__FILE__)+"/factories/*.rb"].each {|file| require file }

This will look into spec/factories for each .rb file and use each one as a different factory file. Create a file with something simiilar to the following

  Factory.define :post do |f|
    f.title "A post title"
    f.body "A full bodied post"
  end

and then in your rspec file, you can use it like this

  Factory(:post)
