The first Capybara integration test always tends to timeout when compiling assets on-demand. It’s just damn too slow. Precompile your assets before the test is run.

RSpec.configure do |config|
  config.before :all do
    ENV['PRECOMPILE_ASSETS'] ||= begin
      case self.class.metadata[:type]
      when :feature, :view
        STDOUT.write "Precompiling assets..."
        Sprockets::StaticCompiler.new(
          Rails.application.assets,
          File.join(Rails.public_path, Rails.configuration.assets.prefix),
          Rails.configuration.assets.precompile,
          manifest_path: Rails.configuration.assets.manifest,
          digest: Rails.configuration.assets.digest,
          manifest: false).compile
        STDOUT.puts " done."
        Time.now.to_s
      end
    end
  end
end
