will be helpful for those in need Here's an example of a working standalone Test::Unit test with a simple controller under test included.. Maybe there's some parts here that you need to transfer over to your rspec code.

seems to work fine If you are using the generated controller specs, you'll see something like this for the destroy action:
code :
require 'spec_helper'

describe PostsController do

  def mock_post(stubs={})
    @mock_post ||= mock_model(Post, stubs).as_null_object

  it "destroys the requested post" do
    Post.stub(:find).with("37") { mock_post }
    delete :destroy, :id => "37"
Why should I run rspec specs on my rails app only in a test environment, not dev or prod?

hop of those help? Running test suites (such as rspec) in a test environment is intended to isolate resources for security concerns, in particular the integrity of your databases. Tests often corrupt or entirely delete data in your databases.
The same holds true for all resources. By using the test environment you are able to cut off and mock resources, thereby preventing you tests from corrupting anything.

wish of those help I am using gem 'dotenv-rails', '~> 0.9.0' to load environment variables into a Rails 4.0.5 app. I have a .env file along with a .env.test. All is working well in development, however when it comes to testing, which I do with rspec, it is failing to set the environment variables.
code :
Dotenv.load(File.expand_path("../../.env.#{Rails.env}", __FILE__))

help you fix your problem Your spec is wrong. It checks that @invitations is set to an array of invitations (which is probably appropriate for the index action) but your show action assigns a single invitation to @invitation.

around this issue I'll play devil's advocate here, since I know I'm probably in the minority with this opinion: I actually prefer to do exceedingly thorough controller testing. A few reasons:
1) I find it easier to systematically test every path and outcome at the controller level than at the integration test level. My integration tests are primarily just happy-paths, and some of the more common error paths.
