Extracts the body of an email and runs nested assertions on it.
You must enable deliveries for this assertion to work, use:
ActionMailer::Base.perform_deliveries = true
assert_select_email do assert_select "h1", "Email alert" end assert_select_email do items = assert_select "ol>li" items.each do # Work with items here... end end
# File actionpack/lib/action_dispatch/testing/assertions/selector.rb, line 414 def assert_select_email(&block) deliveries = ActionMailer::Base.deliveries assert !deliveries.empty?, "No e-mail in delivery list" for delivery in deliveries for part in (delivery.parts.empty? ? [delivery] : delivery.parts) if part["Content-Type"].to_s =~ /^text\/html\W/ root = HTML::Document.new(part.body.to_s).root assert_select root, ":root", &block end end end end
