Rails TimeHelpers

Rails ActiveSupport testing library includes some really helpful methods for manipulating time.

Here’s a cool one:

travel_to Time.new(2022, 9, 14) do  
    #everything inside this block is now happening as if it is 9-14-2022

end
# afterwards we return to the present

This way you can test all sorts of time-based features by jumping back and forth through time.
