yes Tensaibai, that's exactly what I was saying. I'll look a little deeper and maybe there's a way I can do it with what I have.
Maybe save the chefspec rendered file to a var and diff it to my pre-rendered template var.

As I feel I'm missing something:
Bill is validating its template toward a pre-generated file, so the diff would be against it.
Actually if the test fail it shows the rendered content and the expected content, which is hard to compare for long text.
Having the actual_content and expected_content (actual vars in chefspec), adding a diff of them when its not a regex nor matcher sounds a good idea to speed up spotting the error.
(I'm unsure of how to call the chef helper method to make the diff that said)
@Ranjib Did I missed a point somewhere ? I don't understand your 'we don't have an existing file' message.

diff of rendered template with what? like chef we dont have an existing file to generate the diff against.
chef core already has pretty neat helper methods for this

Cool, I was just looking for some validation. All the examples always seem to have a small snip it of content or maybe a regex. I wasn't sure if putting a fully rendered template was going to cause me some unforseen problems latter.
Would be nice if the failed test could output a diff

I use it a lot to test our cookbooks. its particularly helpful if you use partials , etc. I know at least couple of other groups that are using it.
Note: i co-maintain chefspec with seth, so i am biased :0-)

I've only been using chefspec for about a month now and was wondering, Is this a good idea?
it 'renders the file with content from ./spec/rendered_templates/template.conf' do
template_conf = File.read('./spec/rendered_templates/template.conf')
With a known default rendered template in rendered_templates of course. It was what I though render_file would expect but I never saw it as an example anywhere. It works as I expected so I'm using it. Just not seeing it elsewhere makes me think there's something I'm missing.
