Whiny Validation Jump to Story

Sometimes when you run a spec on a Rails app, it fails silently but it isn’t clear why.. It could be a validation error, but the log may not even tell you that. This is a problem Brian Morearty set out to solve with his Whiny Validation gem, which adds a log message so when you debug you’ll know why your test failed. co: That sounds useful, but this sounds like a pretty simple gem... Yeah, admittedly this is a simple gem. But often enough, simple gems like this end up being merged into Rails when people realize they’re lightweight enough and make so much sense. What’s also great is that Brian wrote a blog post which walks us through the internals of developing the gem, how to use ActiveSupport notifications, and how to add your own Log Subscriber. co: It’s great to have the confidence to get in under the hood of these libraries when you need to, and simple examples can go a long way.
