PUT or POST JSON in a Rails 5 ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest

In Rails 5, the preferred base class for testing controllers is ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest.

If you have an API that receives parameters as JSON request bodies, here are some helper methods to facilitate testing:

class ActionDispatch::IntegrationTest
  def put_json(path, obj)
    put path, params: obj.to_json, headers: { 'CONTENT_TYPE' => 'application/json' }

Checksumming backups

par2 is not just for checksumming and recovering Usenet binaries, you can use it for your backups as well.

In my case, I wanted to make sure my RAW and JPG files don't get corrupted by bitrot.

Generating the checksum:

$ cd /the/directory/where/files/are/kept
$ par2 c something.par2 *
$ shasum -a 256 * > shasum256.txt
You can’t perform that action at this time.
