Testing Ember with Cucumber
# You need some sort of indication that an Ajax transaction exists. doesn't seem to do the
# trick, so we use the following JS (well, we use CoffeeScript, but whatever) that gets inserted into
# our application.
#$(function() {
# var body, doc;
# body = $('body');
# doc = $(document);
# doc.ajaxStart(function() {
# return body.addClass('ajax-in-progress').removeClass('ajax-quiet');
# });
# return doc.ajaxStop(function() {
# return body.addClass('ajax-quiet').removeClass('ajax-in-progress');
# });
# You can see below, in wait_for_ember_run_loop_to_complete, that we call:
# jQuery('body').hasClass('ajax-quiet')
module EmberHelpers
# Chill out until Ember is ready to go. First we wait for the page to load, because redirects
# (e.g. Doorkeeper) can confuse things. Once the page is loaded, we check that it's
# an Ember app (.ember-application), and that .application-ready class (from Shared.LoadingRouteMixin) is
# present.
def wait_for_ember_application_to_load
# Now, patiently wait for the .ember-application class to make sure we're in an ember app,
# and .application-ready to verify that it's ready to respond to requests.
using_wait_time 20 do
patiently do
find ".ember-application"
# So now the application is ready but there might be something in the run loop. Chill
# and wait for that to finish.
# This runs after every step in a tagged scenario, or whenver
# we need to specifically make sure that Ember is done with whatever
# it is working on.
def wait_for_ember_run_loop_to_complete
# At this point the page should be loaded, so if we don't see .ember-application,
# we assume it's not an Ember app and this method can just return because there's nothing
# to wait for. Since this is used in tagged scenarios, there might be pages in the scenario
# that aren't Ember-fied (e.g. Doorkeeper's pages). We don't want to fail; we just want to fall
# through.
patiently do
return unless page.has_css? '.ember-application'
# And here is where the magic happens. We check that Ember is instantiated, that there are no
# scheduled timers, and that there is no current run loop. This is the way that Ember does it
# internally, so hey, if it's good enough for production, it's good enough for testing.
2000.times do #this means up to 20 seconds

Thanks @trianglegrrl, I referred to your presentation and adapted your example to work with Watir
