What is this?
How do you compare date/times in RSpec?
If you do this
expect(Time.now.to_i).to eq Time.new(2014, 4, 2).to_i
and you usually use more human format of expressing time, than just spitting out the miliseconds since January 1, 1970 - I've got some bad news for you.
Have you ever wondered what does this mean?
1) time comparison doesn't pass for different time Failure/Error: expect(Time.now.to_i).to eq Time.new(2014, 4, 2).to_i expected: 1396389600 got: 1396430562
Yes, me too - these miliseconds are not that expressive...
With this gist, that will change into:
1) time comparison doesn't pass for different time Failure/Error: expect(Time.now).to be_the_same_time_as Time.new(2014, 4, 2) expected 2014-04-02 11:28:41 +0200 to be the same time as 2014-04-02 00:00:00 +0200
Much nicer, right?
Don't believe me?
