Tips for Using FactoryGirl Without an ORM

FactoryGirl is one of my favourite testing tools — I was a fan prior to joining thoughtbot. It’s one of those tools I miss immediately when working outside the Ruby ecosystem.Recently I’ve been working on a Rails project that doesn’t need any database persistence and therefore doesn’t use an object-relational mapper like ActiveRecord. Instead data is fetched from an external JSON API and parsed into value objects written in plain Ruby.At the outset, the value objects needed for unit tests were manually written for each example. As further attributes were added to the models this quickly became tedious.
