Test HTTP Basic Authentication in Rails 3 With Capybara

Testing your authentication in Rails apps is important but sometimes you don’t need an entire authentication system like devise for backend systems. HTTP basic can be a good comprise but you still need to make sure to test that it’s hooked up correctly. I found doing a full stack integration test using Capybara with Rails 3 to be a good balance between a simple test and assuring the authentication works.
