I have used RSpec before and this is the first time I get this error when I try to run:

rails generate rspec:install

It results in this error:

/Users/ldco2016/Projects/workout_app/config/application.rb:11:in `require': cannot load such file -- action_cable/engine (LoadError)

This is my gemfile:

source ''

git_source(:github) do |repo_name| repo_name = "#{repo_name}/#{repo_name}" unless repo_name.include?("/") "{repo_name}.git" end

# Windows does not include zoneinfo files, so bundle the tzinfo-data gem

This is my config/application.rb:

require_relative 'boot'

require "rails"
# Pick the frameworks you want:
require "active_model/railtie"
require "active_job/railtie"
require "active_record/railtie"
require "action_controller/railtie"
require "action_mailer/railtie"
require "action_view/railtie"
require "action_cable/engine"
require "sprockets/railtie"
# require "rails/test_unit/railtie"

# Require the gems listed in Gemfile, including any gems
# you've limited to :test, :development, or :production.

module WorkoutApp
  class Application < Rails::Application
    # Settings in config/environments/* take precedence over those specified here.
    # Application configuration should go into files in config/initializers
    # -- all .rb files in that directory are automatically loaded.

This issue is not related to RSpec. You're trying to load action_cable in a Rails 4 application (according to your Gemfile), and that's a built in feature for Rails 5. Just remove this line from your application.rb.

require "action_cable/engine"

If you don't really need to load Rails modules independently, just replace all the requires by:

require 'rails/all'

In app/application.rb, comment "require "action_cable/engine"
