Docs on Rspec & Ripple

I see now that test_server.rb should fire up an instance of Riak with the right parameters. Is there somewhere I could see the official way to setup a staging or test instance? From a blank system to where rake spec should just work?

Thanks

The test server also gets its configuration from the file. The only thing you really need to set is "bin_dir", which gives the directory where the "riak" start script lives (depends on how you installed Riak, obviously).

It also inserts an "after :each" block to your spec_helper.rb that wires up clearing the data for you.  The test server is completely independent of any stubbing or additional testing frameworks you use and so it should still work for your specs.  Think of it like having a separate test database, with a big rolled-back transaction at the end of each example.

Currently ploughing our way through https://github.com/seancribbs/ripple/tree/41a7f741603ea186d97064ff3ef542238a078135/ripple/spec attempting to make the in memory test server work. And of course, our Rspec setup is a little different (mocha stubbing, shoulda, etc.) We'll probably get there eventually any docs or cribsheets would be helpful.
