Capybara: use current_path_info instead of current_path / current_url

Capybara has current_url, which returns an url that is unmatcheable since it includes a randomized port, and current_path with contains neither query nor fragment(aka hash/anchor) and is therefore rather useless.

Behold the perfect current_path_info, which returns the full path and query + fragment.

Code

def current_path_info
  current_url.sub(%r{.*?://},'')[%r{[/\?\#].*}] || '/'
end

  1. Thanks for this… I went with:

    “`
    def current_url_fragment
    URI.parse(current_url).fragment
    end
    “`

    which I think is a little bit more elegant, perhaps?
