In Progress

Update capybara to 2.1.0 and our cucumber test suite within our ruby on rails web application.

We require a developer to help migrate our cucumber test suite to be in line with the changes in the 2.1.0 capybara update. Our current capybara version is 1.1.2.

Our test suite uses wait_until in a few places and these tests are broken. We would require those tests to be updated to the new capybara way of doing things. Reference here: [url removed, login to view]

There have been a few syntax changes that would need to be propagated within our test suite as well. Reference: [url removed, login to view]

We have about 7 tests that fail because of the wait_until issue. We have around 200 cucumber scenarios in total.

You tasks are as follows:

- Update capybara gem to 2.1.0

- Update the cucumber test suite for all the capybara changes as described in the upgrade guide.

- Ensure that all the cucumber tests pass.


You must be familiar with ruby and rails development. Must be familiar with the cucumber testing framework.
