$ bin/rspec spec/features/todo_lists/create_spec.rb doesn't indicate any failures nor examples.

When I type that in terminal,

treehouse:~/projects/odot (master) $ bin/rspec spec/features/todo_lists/create_spec.rb /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb:1065:in load': /home/treehouse/projects/odot/spec/features/todo_lists/create_spec.rb:14: syntax error, unexpected end-of-input, expecting keyword_end (SyntaxError) from /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb:1065:inblock in load_spec_files' from /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb:1065:in each' from /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/configuration.rb:1065:inload_spec_files' from /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/command_line.rb:18:in run' from /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/runner.rb:103:inrun' from /home/treehouse/.rbenv/versions/2.0.0-p353/lib/ruby/gems/2.0.0/gems/rspec-core-2.99.2/lib/rspec/core/runner.rb:17:in `block in autorun'

It doesn't indicate the number of failures nor examples. What is the problem?

Thank you.

You're missing an end - add one before the last end.

That should sort it.


P.S. I'll add a comment in your code.

You need an end for every do. When you see the error expecting keyword_end; suspect that you've missed one out!

Thank you so much!

Hey, no problem! :smile: :+1:

Hi Jooyoon,

You aren't seeing any test failures because the test isn't running due to a syntax error. Can you post your code, please? create_spec.rb has an issue!


require 'spec_helper'

describe "Creating todo lists" do

    it "redirects to the todo list index page on success" do

        visit "/todo_lists"
        click_link "New Todo List"
        expect(page).to have_content("New todo_list")

        fill_in "Title", with: "My todo list"
        fill_in "Description", with: "This is what I'm doing today."
        click_button "Create Todo list"

        expect(page).to have_content(My Todo List)
    end # <-- add this

Thank you!
