Ruby Question

Configuration of Rspec terminal output

I am a beginner with

Rspec
, and I found out my terminal output like this.

enter image description here
It's really in a mess and hard to understand test result.

Unlike the output in official tutorial.
enter image description here

Should I install some tools or modify some configuration?

Update

zombie.rb

class Zombie
attr_accessor :name
def initialize
@name = 'Error_Ash'
end
end


zombie_spec.rb

require "spec_helper"
require "zombie"

#give Class
describe Zombie do

# example
it "is named Class_Ash"
zombie = Zombie.new
zombie.name.should == "Ash"
end


error msg

Answer

If there is nothing in your spec_helper that somehow overrides the --format switch (which I do not even know if it's possible) then this should give you readable tests that pass:

zombie.rb exactly as you posted,

zombie_spec

require "spec_helper"
require "zombie"

describe Zombie do 
  it "is named Ash" do
    zombie = Zombie.new 
    expect(zombie.name).to eq "Ash"
  end
end

and command rspec spec/lib/zombie_spec.rb -f d which is short for --format documentation

EDIT*: Oh sorry, the Error you posted is indeed an RSpec error... Its just not formated, as you said x.x try the --tty flag maybe? rspec spec/lib/zombie_spec.rb --tty -f d
