Mock file upload with RSpec 3

One more note on RSpec 3.0, this time one useful function that mocks File Upload , saves file/archive content to memory so after it you can do whatever your soul wants with it. Test file/archive should exist in the file system.

def mock_archive_upload(archive_path, type)
  return => + archive_path , :type => type, :filename => File.basename( + archive_path))))


e.g of use:

#saves archive into memory so it can be manipulated in tests
mock_archive_upload("../fixtues/", "application/zip")
