Github Readme has failing instruction

Reported by Paul Jensen | September 12th, 2010 @ 02:49 PM

In the section describing how to leverage Factory Girl in Pickle, it suggests putting the following line in features/support/factory_girl.rb:

require File.dirname(__FILE__) + '/../../spec/factories'

When running cucumber features, you get an error, "Factory already defined", as described here:


I managed to fix this issue by using this line instead:

require "#{RAILS_ROOT}/spec/factories.rb"

When you get a chance, please update the documentation on the Github project Readme.

    Change "RAILS_ROOT" to Rails.root.to_s, otherwise you get this deprecation message:

    DEPRECATION WARNING: RAILS_ROOT is deprecated. Please use ::Rails.root.to_s.
