I'm getting a syntax error with the identical code.

1) Viewing todo items displays no items when a todo list is empty
     Failure/Error: let!(:todo_list) { TodoList.create(title: "Groceries", description: "Grocery list.") }
     SyntaxError:
       /Users/Projects/odot/app/models/todo_list.rb:9: syntax error, unexpected keyword_end, expecting end-of-input
     # ./spec/features/todo_items/index_spec.rb:4:in `block (2 levels) in <top (required)>'
require 'spec_helper'

describe "Viewing todo items" do
    let!(:todo_list) { TodoList.create(title: "Groceries", description: "Grocery list") }

    it "displays no items when a todo list is empty" do
        visit "/todo_lists"
        within "#todo_list_#{todo_list.id}" do
            click_link "List Items"
        end
        expect(page).to have_content("TodoItems#index")
    end
end

Can you post what's in app/models/todo_list.rb, looks like there's a syntax error around line 9.

Show us the code in that file.

We are only seeing the code in "/spec/features/todo_items/index_spec.rb:4"

cclclass TodoList < ActiveRecord::Base
  has_many :todo_items

  validates :title, presence: true
  validates :title, length: { minimum: 3 }

  validates :description, presence: true
  validates :description, length: { minimum: 5 }
end
