Factory Bot's build_stubbed

May, 2019

build_stubbed is the younger, more hip sibling to build; it instantiates and assigns attributes just like build, but that’s where the similarities end. It makes objects look like they’ve been persisted, creates associations with the build_stubbed strategy (whereas build still uses create), and stubs out a handful of methods that interact with the database and raises if you call them. This leads to much faster tests and reduces your test dependency on a database.
