Choose Your Own RSpec Command

We use vim-turbux to quickly iterate on Ruby tests. But we hit an issue setting up a project on Ubuntu 14.014 that had not been developed in a Linux environment before— Webkit tests there require the Xvfb library. Leaving out the xvfb-run wrapper raises a connection error in test.

Luckily, you can customize vim-turbux commands for each test framework.

Add this to your ~/.vimrc.local:

" ~/.vimrc.local
let g:turbux_command_rspec  = 'xvfb-run -a rspec'

Any RSpec test sent to the terminal window now includes the wrapper library.
