  • t.passed can now be used in tests and teardown functions. Thanks @tymfear! 900dc6d
  • In AVA 4, you'll no longer be able to pass null as the expectation for t.throws() & t.throwsAsync(). You can opt in to this early by enabling the disableNullExpectations experiment. Thanks @JSimoni42! f328a69
  • The Enzyme recipe has been updated. Thanks @jonathansamines! db5d2c3
  • The TypeScript recipe has been updated. Thanks @SephReed! a3379fa

See v3.12.1...v3.13.0 for all changes.

Configure how AVA loads test files

Normally, AVA loads all files as CommonJS, except for mjs files and if you've configured "type": "module" in your package.json.

As an experiment, you can now configure how AVA loads other file extensions. This is useful if you want to use Node.js' experimental loaders feature. Read more in our documentation. Thank you @macarie for working on this! 5c9dbb9

Comparison bugfix

There was a bug in our comparison library which meant that negative-index properties on lists were not compared. This was fixed in a patch release, which will definitely be installed when you install AVA 3.12. Your tests may have been passing, even though they should have been failing. They'll fail now. Snapshots may also be different, causing tests to fail.

All changes

See v3.11.1...v3.12.1 for all changes.

Thank you @AnthumChris for making sure our ESM example used ESM syntax (20bc781).

This release fixes corrupted output of the default reporter when test or program code writes to standard out. 5ddc9fd

Also, thanks to @jonathansamines we've taken another step to using AVA to test AVA. 1150991

New t.like() assertion

Thanks to @futpib we now have a t.like() assertion 19c4f35:

In the following example, the map property of value must be deeply equal to that of selector. However nested.qux is ignored, because it's not in selector.

t.like({
	map: new Map([['foo', 'bar']]),
	nested: {
		baz: 'thud',
		qux: 'quux'
	}
}, {
	map: new Map([['foo', 'bar']]),
	nested: {
		baz: 'thud',
	}
})

Read more in the t.like() assertion documentation.

This assertion was previously introduced as an experiment.

VSCode 1.47 debugging improvements

You can now debug tests using the new JavaScript Debug Terminal in VSCode 1.47. We've updated our debugging recipe accordingly. Thank you @connor4312 for the documentation updates and your work on VSCode! bc39bcc

It's time for another AVA release πŸŽ‰

Restricting when you can update snapshots

When executing a subset of tests, through --match or or .only() or .skip(), you can no longer also update snapshots. This prevents you from accidentally deleting snapshots. Thank you @bunysae for putting this together. f72fab4

If you are skipping a test that you can't immediately fix, but you still need to update snapshots, use .failing() instead.

Support for message strings in t.timeout() calls

Thanks to @jonathansamines you can now provide a message string when using t.timeout(). This can be useful if your test depends on some other setup that may not have been completed: ca8ea45

test('foo', t => {
	t.timeout(100, 'make sure database has started');
	// Write your assertions here
});

t.try() does not work in hooks

t.try() has never worked in hooks, but thanks to @okyantoro it now fails properly instead of crashing. d01db61

t.snapshot() does not really work in hooks either

t.snapshot() sort of works in hooks, but we'll be removing this in AVA 4. You can opt in to this behavior by enabling the disableSnapshotsInHooks experiment. Again thank you @okyantoro d01db61.

Fixed TypeScript definition for t.like()

The experimental t.like() assertion should now work better with TypeScript.

New experiments!

Thanks to @futpib we now have an experimental t.like() assertion 19c4f35:

In the following example, the map property of value must be deeply equal to that of selector. However nested.qux is ignored, because it's not in selector.

t.like({
	map: new Map([['foo', 'bar']]),
	nested: {
		baz: 'thud',
		qux: 'quux'
	}
}, {
	map: new Map([['foo', 'bar']]),
	nested: {
		baz: 'thud',
	}
})

Read more in the t.like() assertion documentation and let us know what you think.

@yjpa7145 has contributed an experiment to reverse the order in which t.teardown() functions are run, so that the last registered function is called first 952a017. This will be the behavior in AVA 4.

To enable both these experiments update your AVA configuration:

package.json:

{
	"ava": {
		"nonSemVerExperiments": {
			"likeAssertion": true,
			"reverseTeardowns": true
		}
	}
}

ava.config.js:

export default {
	nonSemVerExperiments: {
		likeAssertion: true,
		reverseTeardowns: true
	}
}

Reporter changes

@Michael55555 has helped us combine our reporter code into a single file b3866b6. We've also made some other tweaks and improvements baaf99a. Let us know if anything seems amiss.

Improved diffs

@bunysae made it so that missing or extraneous objects in diffs are printed with extra depth concordancejs/concordance#62.

Farewell Node.js 13

Node.js 13 has reached end-of-life. Per our support statement we have removed it from our test matrix and supported version list.

All changes

See v3.8.2...v3.9.0 for all changes. Thank you @paulrobertlloyd and @Autre31415 for contributing documentation improvements.

Node.js 14 support

Great news, this is a feature heavy release!

First off, though, AVA now officially supports Node.js 14. Thank you @zackschuster! 2e7c76b

Run tests at specific line numbers

AVA can now run tests at specific line numbers! πŸŽ‰

Given the following test file:

test.js

1: test('unicorn', t => {
2:   t.pass();
3: });
4:
5: test('rainbow', t => {
6:  t.fail();
7: });

Running npx ava test.js:2 for would run the unicorn test. In fact you could use any line number between 1 and 3.

This feature is only available from the command line. It won't work if you use tools like ts-node/register or @babel/register, and it does not currently work with @ava/babel and @ava/typescript. See #2473.

Thank you @ulken for your hard work and patience to get this shipped. 1222ce9

Test-specific teardown functions

Sometimes tests have side-effects you want to clean up. @ulken has implemented t.teardown() which lets you register teardown functions within your test. They'll run once your test has finished, even if it failed: 75cbc3b

test('read file', t => {
	fs.writeFileSync('file.txt', 'πŸ‘‹');
	t.teardown(() => fs.unlinkSync('file.txt');

	// Run assertions
});

Node.js internal in stack traces

Thanks to @bunysae, stack traces now include Node.js internals. Previously we removed them because we wanted you to focus on your own code, but quite often they do provide context. Now they're displayed, but somewhat dimmed. 9a9351d

Watch mode with the default reporter

Watch mode with the default reporter once again accepts key input. Thanks @pcdevil! 59c227d

ICYMI

  • afterEach() and afterEach.always() hooks can now determine whether the test passed. Thank you @bunysae for contributing this! 8f312c0

     test('passes', t => t.pass());
     
     test.afterEach(t => {
     	if (t.passed) {
     		// Do something because the test passed
     	} else {
     		// Do something because the test failed
     	}
     });
  • If you've ever wanted to save some files along with AVA's snapshots, you can now determine the directory path by accessing test.meta.snapshotDirectory. Thank you @ulken! cb5f9f7
