EAP 112.669 Problem with Rspec

I get the following when trying to run specs:  "gem_original_require': no such file to load -- teamcity/spec/runner/formatter/teamcity/formatter (LoadError)"

I do not get the problem when runn EAP 112.477.  I think this problem occurred years ago, and may have reared its ugly head, again.

Have a good one.  Love your product.



Would like to add that I'm seeing this same error with RM-112.477 also.

In my case the error seems related to Spork.   Spork server is reporting that it's being told to run with "Spec::Runner::Formatter::TeamcityFormatter" with command line require when Rake spec task is run by RubyMine.  

If I remove --drb from .rspec file, the error goes away.


I have no issues with doing Rspec with 113.2


Hm, I just downloaded 113.2 and tried, the problem is still there.

Just to be clear, the problem occurs when rspec is run from RubyMine (i.e. trying to debug a spec) and you are using Spork.

This means my .rspec contains --drb, and if .rspec contains --drb,  RubyMine passes the following to RSpec:

["--color", "--backtrace", "--format", "Spec::Runner::Formatter::TeamcityFormatter", "--require", "teamcity/spec/runner/formatter/teamcity/formatter", "./spec/models/fileone_spec.rb", "./spec/models/filetwo_desc_spec.rb"]...

I don't have the formatter, so rspec fails.  

This happens even if Spork Drb server isn't running and local mode is forced.  As long as --drb is in .rspec file, RubyMine seems to want to use TeamcityFormatter.

Workaround is to remove --drb from .rspec when you want to debug a spec.  Put it back in to continue happily with Spork.  

May be this isn't exactly the same problem OP was reporting, but seems to be in the vicinity....


How do you launch spork server? Do you use RubyMine's "Tools|Run Spork Drb Server..." action?


Roman, I was running Spork from a command line shell.

Not quite understanding why having --drb in .rspec causes this difference, but does this mean you can only run rake test tasks against RubyMine launched Spork server and not externally launch spork?
