You want a way to run a specific sub-set of your specs. Well RSpec has a
tag metadata that you can add to make things a lot nicer:
describe "my awesome code", :awesome do # some set of awesome tests end
Now I just run
rspec --tag awesome and you're just going to run your block!
It also takes a negation, which means that if you want to run everything else you just use
rspec --tag ~awesome.
You can also use this to add behavior to the way examples are dealt with via
RSpec.configure do |config| config.append_after : each do |ce| if ce.metadata[:awesome] # do something awesome to the example end end end
