How to test external APIs Jump to Story

Jared Carroll released a great writeup over on the Carbon Emitter, where he details how you should test external APIs. He walks through how to use RSpec and Capybara to write a failing integration test and shows how to make those tests pass step-by-step. He creates domain models, an adapter layer, shows how to stub collaborators when unit testing, and ultimately shows how to make the whole thing work, and even tosses in a little VCR to make it fast.
