nodeunit(1) -- simple node.js unit testing tool

SYNOPSIS

nodeunit [options] <file-or-directory> [<file-or-directory> ...]

DESCRIPTION

Nodeunit is a simple unit testing tool based on the node.js assert module.

  • Simple to use
  • Just export the tests from a module
  • Helps you avoid common pitfalls when testing asynchronous code
  • Easy to add test cases with setUp and tearDown functions if you wish
  • Allows the use of mocks and stubs

--list-reporters: List available build-in reporters.

-t testName: Run specifc test only.

-f fullTestName: Run specific test only. fullTestName is built so: "outerGroup - .. - innerGroup - testName".
