Posted in How to test ActionMailer in Rails Discussion

Great episode, Chris. I like how you said you don't really need to test CSS styling but instead focus on testing the higher level functionality of your mailers. That way, a developer doesn't go down a rabbit hole writing too fine grained tests.

Also, the last point about ActionMailer::Base.deliveries makes me wonder what the difference is between that and assert_emails.

Hey Felipe,

Yeah, I think I know what you mean. querySelectorAll returns an object but since you can do something like object[0] to get the first element in the object, it looks like you might be working with an array. Great point.
