zombie.js-changelog(7) -- Changelog

Version 0.11.8 2011-12-04

Added browser.query and browser.queryAll. Deprecated browser.css; planning to use it for something else post 1.0.

Calling html or text when the document is not an HTML page returns the text contents. Particularly useful if you're looking at the contents of what should be an HTML page, but got 404 or 500 insteas.

Version 0.11.2 2011-11-22

Send Content-Length in URL-encoded form requests (Sven Bange).

Added support for HTTP Basic and OAuth 2.0 authorization (Paul Dixon).

344 Tests
1.9 sec to complete

Version 0.11.1 2011-11-21

Better error reporting when executing JS asynchronoulsy (timers, XHR).

Event loop keeps processing past errors.

333 Tests
1.8 sec to complete

Version 0.11.0 2011-11-20

Changed error handling for the better.

Calling browser.wait or browser.visit no longer passed the resource/JavaScript error as the first argument, and will continue processing if there are multiple errors.

Instead, an array of errors is passed as the fourth argument. You can also access browser.errors and to get just the last one, e.g. to check if any errors were reported, use browser.error.

Using console.log(browser) will puke over your terminal, so we add global defaults for sanity.

Set console.depth to specify how many times to recurse while formatting the object (default is zero).

Set console.showHidden to show non-enumerable properties (defaults to false).

333 Tests

Version 0.10.3 2011-11-18

Added site option allowing you to call visit with a relative path. Example:

browser = new Browser(site: "localhost:3000")
browser.visit("/testing", function(error, browser) {

Fixed uploading of attachments to work with Connect/Express (and possibly other servers). Formidable (used by Connect) does not support Base64 encoding. Sending binary instead.

Tested on Node 0.6.1.

330 Tests
2.1 sec to complete

Version 0.10.2 2011-10-13

Fixed #173 causes Segmentation fault (Brian McDaniel)

Upgraded to JSDOM 0.2.7.

Version 0.10.1 2011-09-08

Tests that this == window == top == parent. True when evaluated within the context of the browser, not necessarily when using browser.window.

Removed JSDOM patch for iframes, no tests failing, let's see what happens ...

Fixes #164 jQuery selectors with explicit context fail.

Better stack traces for client-side JS. This will help in debugging and filing issues.

Updated installation instructions for OS X/Windows.

Upgraded to JSDOM 0.2.4 and testing with jQuery 1.6.3.

329 Tests
2.9 sec to complete

Version 0.10.0 2011-08-27

Upgraded to JSDOM 0.2.3 which brings us a Window context that works for asynchronous invocations (that would be timers, XHR and browser.evaluate), and many many other improvements.

Tested for compatibility with jQuery 1.6.2. Yes. It works.

NOTE: This release uses htmlparser as the default parser, while waiting for some bug fixes on HTML5. Unfortunately, htmlparser is limited in what it can accept and properly parse. Be aware of the following issues:

  • Your document must have html, head and body elements.
  • No CDATAs. But then again, CDATA is so 1999.
  • Tag soups break the parser.
  • Scripts can't use document.write. Again, it's not 1999.

Added browser.loadCSS option. Set this to load external stylesheets. Defaults to true.

Added browser.htmlParser option. Tells JSDOM which HTML5 parser to use. Use null for the default parser.

Fixed handling of file protocol.

Fixed: missing pathname support for window.location.href [#156]

Some internal changes to history. Breaks iframe.

289 Tests
3.3 sec to complete

Version 0.9.0 2011-02-17

New isolated contexts for executing JavaScript. This solves a long standing problems with pages that have more than one script. Briefly speaking, each window gets it's own context/global scope that is shared by all scripts loaded for that page, but isolated from all other windows.

Fixes error handling on timeout/XHR scripts, these now generate an onerror event.

Eventloop is now associated with window instead of browser.

Fixes URL resolution in XHR requests with no port.

293 Tests

Version 0.8.12 2011-02-01

Tested with Node 0.3.7 in preparation for Node 0.4.0.

Added browser.fork (Josh Adell):

Return a new browser using a snapshot of this browser's state. This method clones the forked browser's cookies, history and storage. The two browsers are independent, actions you perform in one browser do not affect the other.

Particularly useful for constructing a state (e.g. sign in, add items to a shopping cart) and using that as the base for multiple tests, and for running parallel tests in Vows.

Fix firing the change event on SELECT elements when using jQuery (Damian Janowski).

Fix for jQuery.ajax receiving a non-string data option (Damian Janowski).

Fix to allow script elements that are not JavaScript (Sean Coates).

NOTE: In this release I started running the test suite using cake test and recording the time reported by Vows. This doesn't count the time it takes to fire up Node, Cake, etc, so the reported time is approximately a second smaller than the previously reported time for 0.8.11. All other things being equal.

292 Tests

Version 0.8.11 2011-01-25

Added browser.source which returns the unmodified source of the current page (Bob Lail).

Added support for the Referer header (Vinicius Baggio).

If cookies do not specify a path, they are set to the root path rather than to the request path (Bob Lail).

Cookies are allowed to specify paths other than the request path (Bob Lail).

Ensure fields are sent in the order they are described (José Valim).

Fix parsing of empty body (Vinicius Baggio).

Add support for window.screen (Damian Janowski).

Zombie now sends V0 cookies (Assaf Arkin).

Fix for loading scripts over SSL (Damian Janowski).

Added window.resources to return all resources loaded by the page (including the page itself). You can see what the page is up with:


Modified lastRequest/lastResponse to use the window resources, fixed browser.status and browser.redirected to only look at the page resource itself.

282 Tests

Version 0.8.10 2011-01-13

Allow setting cookies from subdomains (Damian Janowski & Michel Martens).

Modified to fire MouseEvents as well (Bob Lail).

Added window.title accessor (Bob Lail).

Fixed window.navigator.userAgent to return userAgent property (same as sent to server) (Assaf Arkin).

Added support for alert, confirm and prompt (Assaf Arkin).

Added accessors for status code from last respone (browser.statusCode) and whether last response followed a redirect (browser.redirected) (Assaf Arkin).

The visit, clickLink and pressButton methods now pass three arguments to the callback: error, browser and status code (Assaf Arkin).

265 Tests

Version 0.8.9 2011-01-10

Properly use the existance operator so empty strings are sent (José Valim).

Fix to XPath evaluation and sorting by document order (José Valim).

Version 0.8.6 2010-12-31

Now supports cookies on redirect (thanks Łukasz Piestrzeniewicz).

Handle server returning multiple Set-Cookie headers.

Version 0.8.1 2010-12-29

Added User-Agent string. You can change it by setting the browser option userAgent.

There was an error with browser.location: documentation said it returns a Location object but also just a URL. Since Location object is more consistent with window.location, accepted that interpretation.

Location.assign did not load a page if the page was already loaded in the browser. Changed it to load the page (add caching later on).

196 Tests
2.6 sec to complete

Version 0.8.0 2010-12-29

Fixed issue 8, wrong location of package.json.

Upgraded to JSDOM 0.1.22 and using HTML5 parser throughout.

Added browser.runScript option. Set to false if you don't want the browser to execute scripts.

You can now set browser options when initializing a new browser, on existing Browser object or for the duration of a request by passing them as second argument to visit.

Browser now has a property called debug that you can set to true/false (was a function), and separately a method called log that logs messages when debugging is enabled.

Added new page covering the browser API.

Version 0.7.3 2010-12-27

Fixed non-sensical error message when selector fails matching a node (fill, check, select, etc).

Added debugging to help you figure out what's happening when tests run:

  • Call browser.debug with a boolean to turn debugging on/off.
  • Call browser.debug with a boolean and function to turn debugging on/off only while calling that function.
  • Call browser.debug with multiple arguments to print them (same as console.log).
  • Call browser.debug with a function to print the result of that function call.

Added an all revealing browser.dump: history, cookies, storage, document, etc. Simply call: browser.dump

Testing that Zombie.js can handle jQuery live form submit event. Yes it can!

Version 0.7.2 2010-12-27

In CoffeeScript 1.0 loops no longer try preserve block scope when functions are being generated within the loop body. Unfortunately, this broke a bunch of stuff when running Zombie from CoffeeScript source. It had effect when running the compiled JavaScript.

Changed: window.location now returns the same Location object until you navigate to a different page.

183 Tests

Version 0.7.1 2010-12-22

Removed CoffeeScript from runtime dependency list.

Version 0.7.0 2010-12-22

Added querySelector and querySelectorAll based on the DOM Selector API. Use this instead of find method.

Browser is now an EventEmitter, you can listen to drain (event queue empty), error (loading page) and loaded (what is says).

You can now use pressButton with inputs of type button and reset (previously just submit).

More, better, documentation.

187 tests

Version 0.6.5 2010-12-21

Fixed lack of JavaScript source code: CoffeeScript moved to src, JavaScript compiled into lib, life is grand again.

Changelog is now Markdown file and part of the documentation.

Version 0.6.4 2010-12-21

First documentation you can actually use.

Version 0.6.3 2010-12-21

Fixed documentation link.

First NPM release.

Started working on documentation site.

Added cake setup to get you up and running with development dependencies.

Remove Vows as runtime dependency. Use whichever framework you like. Moved sizzle.js from dep to vendor. Moved scripts used during tests to spec/.scripts.

Version 0.6.1 2010-12-20

Changed browser.cookies from getter to function that accepts cookie domain (host and port) and path, and returns wrapper to access specific cookie context.

Fixed: browser now creates new window for each new document.

Added window.JSON.
