Ruby Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Viewing Todo Items: Part 1

It's generating a new list for each time I run the rspec

Hey, Each time I run the rspec command it seems to add a new list_item (with the title and description).

Does anyone know the solution?

This is what it looks like after some runs: ``Bash expected to find text "TodoItems#index" in "Listing todo_lists Title Description List items Something Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Groceries Grocery list. Show Edit Destroy List items Something Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet Show Edit Destroy New Todo list"

Thanks,

Fredrik A. Madsen-Malmo

Seems like it's not cleaning the database after itself. Try those suggestions: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5608203/rspec-integration-test-not-cleaning-the-database

I usually go for database_cleaner gem.

Thanks, I ended up opening the db file in a database program and clearing it. After that I ran rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=test and that fixed the problem.
