Different final command line output

Towards the end of the "Deleting Todo Items" video, we I ran the final test that passed, I got a different output from Jason's, even though it passed.

Why am I getting a different outcome, even though, I followed the video exactly?

Here's my final command line output:

treehouse:~/projects/odot (master *) $ git add .
treehouse:~/projects/odot (master +) $ git commit -m "Delete todo list items"
[master d391381] Delete todo list items
 6 files changed, 64 insertions(+), 43 deletions(-)
 create mode 100644 app/views/todo_items/_form.html.erb
 rewrite app/views/todo_items/edit.html.erb (89%)
 rewrite app/views/todo_items/new.html.erb (89%)
 create mode 100644 spec/features/todo_items/delete_spec.rb
treehouse:~/projects/odot (master) $

Here's the final delete_spec.rb file for the video,

require 'spec_helper'

describe "Deleting todo items" do 
    let!(:todo_list) { TodoList.create(title: "Grocery list", description: "Groceries") }
    let!(:todo_item) { todo_list.todo_items.create(content: "Milk") }

    def visit_todo_list(list)
        visit "/todo_lists"
        within "#todo_list_#{list.id}" do
            click_link "List Items"

    it "is successful" do 
        within "#todo_item_#{todo_item.id}" do
            click_link "Delete"
        expect(page).to have_content("Todo list item was deleted.")
        expect(TodoItem.count).to eq(0)

Hello kabir k, It looks like the code you posted is the input/output from pushing to github. Could you post the test output? One reason it could look different is if you set the Rspec output to: --format documentation

I'm with Sage too - that output is the result of a local git commit, not a test pass/fail.
