RSpec: request specs vs feature specs

In this screencast I introduce a rather small feature to Happi, setting the reply-to address for new threads.

The main point of it is to cover writing request specs that give me confidence my code is working and I also explore and write a feature spec and give some thoughts as to why I wouldn’t normally write an end-to-end test for this type of product feature.

You can find a higher quality version on Youtube, please subscribe there if you like the content.


P.s. I got a new microphone and am still trying to figure out how to use it properly, so apologies for any breathing or weird noises :)
