Test that an email was sent with correct params

assert_email_delivered_with is a function that checks if an email was delivered using Bamboo.

Sending an email is a side-effect in functional programming parlance. When testing a function where the email is sent several calls deep, you generally don’t get the email as a return value of that function.

When using Bamboo’s TestAdaptor in test mode, Bamboo captures the delivered email so that you can assert about it.

Lottery.notify_winner()
assert_email_delivered_with(subject: "You Won!!")

You can also assert on: to, cc, text_body, html_body, from, and bcc.

Happy Testing!
