Some neat Capybara selectors and matchers for working with HTML tables.


Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:

ruby gem 'capybara_table'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install capybara_table

If you’re using RSpec, require the matchers:

require "capybara_table/rspec"



If you have a table like this:

``` html

First Name Last Name Age
Jonas Nicklas 31
John 22


Then you can do this

``` ruby # find a table by caption find(:table, “People”) # by caption

find a table row by its headers, even works with colspans!

# (note the extra hash at the end) find(:table_row, Name” => “Jonas”, “Last Name” => “Nicklas”, {})

Assert on a table row with RSpec

expect(find(:table “People”)).to have_table_row(“First Name” => “Jonas”, “Last Name” => “Nicklas”)

Assert on a table row with MiniTest

within :table, “People” do assert_selector(:table_row, Name” => “Jonas”, “Last Name” => “Nicklas”, {}) end ```
