How to Exclude Rspec tests matching a specific tag

This article describe how to exclude tests matching a specific tag.

😎 Preparation

Please set an option to give us a cleaner syntax: spec/spec_helper.rb

RSpec.configure do |config|
config.treat_symbols_as_metadata_keys_with_true_values = true

🗽 Adding tag

describe '#do_something', :skip do
it 'returns something' do
expect( eq '...'

🐯 Tag based execution

Run everything, except for :skip tests:

$ bundle exec rspec --tag \~skip spec/

If you want to run tests mathcing :skip tag:

$ bundle exec rspec --tag skip spec/
