Authors of a popular test data generator Factory Girl renamed this nice tool to a way less personal “Factory Bot”. For quite some time, I sticked to the last version of the original tool. Recently, I wrote the following little piece of code, which allows me to keep using the original name (which is referenced from the tests quite often) but with up-to-date code.
module FactoryGirl include FactoryBot def self.method_missing(m, *args, &block) FactoryBot.send(m, *args, &block) end end
if defined?(FactoryBot) require Rails.root.join('lib', 'factory_girl') end
This doesn’t fix generators that keep putting
FactoryBot into new factories. But that’s quite manageable, so I didn’t invest energy into it.
