So I'm a little bit confused at getting started at writing my own Automated test scripts.
For reference the majority of my company's apps are Ruby on Rails technology, I looked into using Cucumber, but I think that's a down the road thing I want to get used to writing the actual test scripts first.
So I've been looking at using Capybara and Selenium to do the web automation, but most of Capybara's docs are about interacting with normal web page elements. Most of our stuff is in 'Ruby on Rails' but does that matter?
When I actually write the test scripts are they actually the RSpec scripts required for testing? That's where I'm getting confused. Just as a base test I want to go to a site and click a dropdown (just to make sure I have everything set up correctly). But I'm not sure if I should be looking at Capybara docs or RSpec docs or what?
and does it matter if the web application is a RoR app or a normal HTML/CSS/JS app if I'm going to use Capybara(W/Selenium driver) or what?
I guess im trying to figure out the exact process of what needs to be done to start automation testing a RoR app using capybara.
