Trying out Pony for email
Email is going to be used to activate an account, and I'm leaning towards using the Pony gem to simplify the creations and sending.
Here's how simple Pony is:
Pony.mail(:to => 'email@example.com', :from=>'firstname.lastname@example.org', :subject=>'spam', :body=>(erb :registration_email))
and here's how you can test it with the pony-test gem:
def test_valid_new_user_signup_should_create_email count=all_email.count create_user assert_equal count+1, all_email.count end def test_signup_email_should_contain_activation_link create_user assert_match /http\:\/\//, current_email.body end
Don't forget to nclude the Pony test helpers in your test class...
