Testing External APIs with VCR Discussion

General • Asked by Chris Oliver

I looked at VCR in the past and was a little intimadeted by it. Now that I have tried it, all I can say is how amazing it is!

For n00bs, it is worth noting that after putting the configuration in place in your test_helper.rb file, you can run your tests and it will warn you when it notices an API request, so you know which files to go back and add the setup/teardown to.
