I’m one of the core maintainers of Jasmine and am thrilled that you’ve decided to include us in your book. Here are a few things worth noting.

  • We’re more a successor to JSUnit & Screw.Unit than Blue Ridge. In fact, there’s a fork of Blue Ridge out there that uses Jasmine
  • The Rails 3 fixes are in the latest Jasmine gem so the workaround is no longer necessary. Would love to see this updated
  • The sample on p172 could use a beforeEach block, but now I’m nitpicking

And thanks for including one of the fixture loader patterns.

Feel free to drop me an email at dwfrank at if you’d like any further help!

Beta 10 and the finished book will not have the Rails 3 workaround. I think the comment about you being a successor to anything was also removed at the same time.
