Running the Testsuite

Run the testsuite for couch.js and jquery.couch.js by browsing here:

http://127.0.0.1:5984/_utils/spec/run.html

It should work in at least Firefox >= 3.6 with Private Browsing mode enabled.

Read more about JSpec here:

https://github.com/liblime/jspec

When you change the specs, but your changes have no effect, manually reload the changed spec file in the browser. When the spec that tests Erlang views fails, make sure you have enabled Erlang views as described here:

http://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/EnableErlangViews
