create_generated_attribute(attribute_type, name = "test", index = nil)

Create a Rails::Generators::GeneratedAttribute by supplying the attribute type and, optionally, the attribute name:

create_generated_attribute(:string, 'name')
# File railties/lib/rails/generators/testing/behaviour.rb, line 81
def create_generated_attribute(attribute_type, name = "test", index = nil)
  Rails::Generators::GeneratedAttribute.parse([name, attribute_type, index].compact.join(":"))
end
generator(args = default_arguments, options = {}, config = {})

Instantiate the generator.

# File railties/lib/rails/generators/testing/behaviour.rb, line 73
def generator(args = default_arguments, options = {}, config = {})
  @generator ||= generator_class.new(args, options, config.reverse_merge(destination_root: destination_root))
end
run_generator(args = default_arguments, config = {})

Runs the generator configured for this class. The first argument is an array like command line arguments:

class AppGeneratorTest < Rails::Generators::TestCase
  tests AppGenerator
  destination File.expand_path("../tmp", File.dirname(__FILE__))
  setup :prepare_destination

  test "database.yml is not created when skipping Active Record" do
    run_generator %w(myapp --skip-active-record)
    assert_no_file "config/database.yml"
  end
end

You can provide a configuration hash as second argument. This method returns the output printed by the generator.

# File railties/lib/rails/generators/testing/behaviour.rb, line 65
def run_generator(args = default_arguments, config = {})
  capture(:stdout) do
    args += ["--skip-bundle"] unless args.include? "--dev"
    generator_class.start(args, config.reverse_merge(destination_root: destination_root))
  end
end
