Passing arguments to your test files

Translations: Fran莽ais

You can pass command line arguments to your test files. Use the -- argument terminator to separate AVA's arguments from your own:

// test.js
import test from 'ava';

test('argv', t => {
	t.deepEqual(process.argv.slice(2), ['--hello', 'world']);
$ npx ava -- --hello world

You need two -- argument terminators if you're invoking AVA through an npm test script:

	"scripts": {
		"test": "ava"
$ npm test -- -- --hello world
