Rails 3, unit test, and autotest

This is just a reminder for myself, I finally can run autotest with this setup on my mac:

Gemfile content:

snip ...
group :development, :test do
  gem 'webrat'
  gem 'mocha'
  gem 'ZenTest'
  gem 'autotest-rails'
  gem 'autotest-growl'
  gem 'autotest-fsevent'

RAILS_ROOT/.autotest (create one if it doesn’t exist) content:

require "ZenTest"
require "autotest/rails"
require "autotest/growl"
require "autotest/fsevent"
Autotest.add_hook :initialize do |autotest|
  %w{.git .svn .hg .DS_Store ._* vendor tmp log doc config .rvmrc Gemfile .autotest README Rakefile}.each do |exception|

then go to your RAILS_ROOT directory, run bundle exec autotest, and watch those nice green growl pops up :D
