Minor issue with Pending test in Hartl 6.8

Hi all,

I'm on Hartl Rails 4.0 Chapter 6.8; I'm getting a "Pending test" for this and am not sure why. Any ideas?

require 'spec_helper'

describe User do

before do
@user = User.new(name: "Example User", email: "[email protected]")

subject { @user }

it { should respond_to(:name) }
it { should respond_to(:email) }

it { should be_valid }

Rspec output:


User add some examples to (or delete) /Users/piratebroadcast/rails_studio/messages/spec/models/user_spec.rb
# No reason given
# ./spec/models/user_spec.rb:4

Finished in 1.64 seconds
13 examples, 0 failures, 1 pending

  1. That message is the default pending message that gets put there on generation. Did you happen to remove it and then forget to save the file?
