How to set up Capybara and Selenium in ruby on rails application?

First of all add gems into gemfile:

gem 'capybara'
gem "selenium-webdriver"

require 'capybara/rspec'
require 'capybara/rails'

Capybara.register_driver :selenium do |app|
Capybara::Selenium::Driver.new(app, :browser => :chrome)

Now we are ready to write test suits for our application but before that if any Error raised like driver not found , to resolve that we would need to install Chromedriver.exe
