Jasmine Headless WebKit runner

Run your specs at sonic boom speed! No pesky reload button or page rendering slowdowns!

Introduction

This gem works with projects that have used the Jasmine gem to create a jasmine.yml file that defines what to test. The runner loads that jasmine.yml file and executes the tests defined within in a Qt WebKit widget, displaying the results to the console and setting the exit code to one of the following:

  • 0 for success
  • 1 for spec run failure
  • 2 for spec run success, but console.log was called during the run

console.log works, too, so you can run your specs side-by-side in a browser if you're so inclined. It serializes whatever you're passing in as as JSON string, so objects that are cyclical in nature will not serialize. If anyone has a good solution for this, please suggest and/or fork'n'fix.

Installation

gem install jasmine-headless-webkit or use Bundler.

Installation requires Qt 4.7. See senchalabs/examples and my fork of examples for more information on the QtWebKit runner.

Tested in the following environments:

  • Mac OS X 10.6, with MacPorts Qt and Nokia Qt.mpkg
  • Kubuntu 10.10

Let me know via a message or in the Issues section if it works on your setup and it's not listed!

Usage

jasmine-headless-webkit [options] [path to jasmine.yml, defaults to spec/javascripts/support/jasmine.yml]

Current supported options:

  • -c/--colors enables color output
  • --no-colors disables color output
  • --keep preserves the temporary HTML document if an error occurs in testing

These options can also be placed into a .jasmine-headless-webkit file in your project root.

CoffeeScript Support

jasmine-headless-webkit brings in the coffee-script gem and compiles & injects all CoffeeScript into the generated HTML page. All you need to do is configure your jasmine.yml file to look for .coffee files:

src_files:
  - app/assets/javascripts/**/*.coffee
spec_files:
  - **/*[sS]pec.coffee

(This will probably make it difficult to test your code in an official Jasmine server for now. You can try a technique like this for compiling CoffeeScript when it's requested from the server or use this fork of jasmine-gem which is thoroughly untested.)

You will get line numbers on compile errors, but not logic errors. This is a CoffeeScript thing, and they're working on it. :)

JavaScript Dialogs

You can call alert() and confirm() in your code. alert() will print the message to the console, and confirm() will always return true. There's no way right now to respond to confirm(), so it's best to mock that call:

spyOn(window, 'confirm').andReturn(false);

Autotest Integration

jasmine-headless-webkit can integrate with Autotest. Your jasmine.yml file needs to be in the default path, and you have to be ready to use a very alpha implementation of the feature. If used with RSpec 2, Jasmine tests run after RSpec tests.

You need to create a .jasmine-headless-webkit file in your project root for this integration to work.

jasmine-headless-webkit provides two new hooks: :run_jasmine and :ran_jasmine for before and after the Jasmine specs have run. This is a good place to do things like re-package all your assets using Jammit:

Autotest.add_hook(:run_jasmine) do |at|
  system %{jammit}
end

Server Interaction

jasmine-headless-webkit works the same as if you create an HTML file, manually load the Jasmine library and your code & tests into the page, and open that page in a browser. Because of this, there's no way to handle server interaction with your application or with a Jasmine server. If you need to test server interaction, do one of the following:

  • Stub your server responses using Sinon.JS
  • Use PhantomJS against a running copy of a Jasmine server, instead of this project
