Ruby Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Build a Todo List Application with Rails 4 Editing Todo Lists

todo_list = options[:title]

I am just trying to make sure I understand the update_rspec tests correctly.

let!(:todo_list)  {  TodoList.create(title: "Groceries", description: "Groecery list.") }

We are using the TodoList.create because we need a todo_list already in the application to be able to update it. The let! is taking a symbol(:todo_list) as a method and running a block of what we want implemented in the test.

 todo_list = options[:todo_list]

the todo_list variable is calling the let!(:todo_list) { TodoList.create(title: "Groceries", description: "Groecery list.")}" so that rspec knows which todo list we are wanting to update.


reload is telling the database to refresh/reload after the todo list has been successfully updated.

Is this correct ?
