Karma runner for brackets

Run test on multiple browser within your editor!

This plugin allows to run your test suites with karma-runner inside Brackets IDE

Alt text

##Installation

  1. Make sure you have karma-cli installed globally: npm install -g karma-cli
  2. Then install karma-brackets (and karma) and add them to your project dependencies: npm install karma-brackets --save-dev
  3. Open Brackets > File > Extension Manager (or click on the icon on the sidebar)
  4. Select the "Available" tab
  5. Search for "karma" and press install
  6. Restart brackets

##Standalone Usage

  1. Add 'brackets' to the list of reporters in karma.conf.js
  2. Open the configuration and (if needed) update the path to your karma executable
  3. Start karma server with File > Start karma server
  4. Once the server is running the status bar will show a black 'K'
  5. You can now execute your tests with File > launch tests (Cmd/Ctrl + Alt + k)
  6. Bonus: If you enable auto-watch in karma.conf.js , you won't need the previous step :)
  7. Enjoy Testing with karma and brackets!

##Using an external karma server (e.g. with grunt)

  1. Again, make sure karma.conf.js has 'brackets' in the list of reporters
  2. Connect to karma with File > Connect to karma server

##Example config file This is how your config file should look like in order to use karma within brackets

module.exports = function (config) {
    'use strict';
    config.set({
        basePath: '.',
        files: [
            'someFile.js',
            'someFile.spec.js'
        ],
        reporters: ['progress', 'brackets'],
        frameworks: ['jasmine'],
        port: 9876,
        runnerPort: 9100,
        colors: true,
        autoWatch: true,
        browsers: ['Chrome', 'PhantomJS'],
        captureTimeout: 60000,
        singleRun: false
    });
};

##Settings

You can specify a different karma executable, configuration file, and when to open the results panel (always, when a test fails or never) by going to File > Karma Settings

You can also enjoy karma auto-watch feature by simply putting the autoWatch variable to true in karma config file.

##Troubleshooting

With the latest version of this plugin, error reported should be cleaner and easier to understand. If you have any problem, feel free to open an issue on github.

##To-do

  • Live testing, test-on-save
  • Port the brackets reporter to the new (unstable) brackets reporter format
  • Make the extension work with external karma server
  • on error - go to line (needs karma modification)

##Contibution

Currently, this plugin is tested on Mac OSX 10.8. I don't have full-time access to windows machines, if you can help me with testing on win, let me know!

Please use this plugin, enjoy it and report back any problem you may have (including your wife yelling at you). If you find a bug, please, open an issue on github (or, if you have time, send a pull request!)

Note that this plugin use a slightly modified version of karma.
