NodeJS / Javascript Example

https://codecov.io @codecov hello@codecov.io IRC #codecov
  - npm install -g codecov
  - istanbul cover ./node_modules/mocha/bin/_mocha --report lcovonly -- -R spec
  - codecov

Repository tokens are required for (a) all private repos, (b) public repos not using Travis-CI, CircleCI or AppVeyor. Find your repository token at Codecov and provide via codecov --token=:token or export CODECOV_TOKEN=":token"

Produce Coverage Reports

Mocha + Blanket.js

  • Install blanket.js
  • Configure blanket according to docs.
  • Run your tests with a command like this:
NODE_ENV=test YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE=1 ./node_modules/.bin/mocha \
  --require blanket \
  --reporter mocha-lcov-reporter

Mocha + JSCoverage

Instrumenting your app for coverage is probably harder than it needs to be (read here), but that's also a necessary step.

In mocha, if you've got your code instrumented for coverage, the command for a travis build would look something like this:

YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE=1 ./node_modules/.bin/mocha test -R mocha-lcov-reporter


With Mocha:

istanbul cover ./node_modules/mocha/bin/_mocha --report lcovonly -- -R spec && codecov

With Jasmine:

istanbul cover node_modules\jasmine\bin\jasmine.js

With Karma:

The lcov.info can be used as in other configurations. Some projects experienced better results using json output but it is no longer enabled by default. In karma.config.js both can be enabled:

module.exports = function karmaConfig (config) {
        reporters: [
            // Reference: https://github.com/karma-runner/karma-coverage
            // Output code coverage files
        // Configure code coverage reporter
        coverageReporter: {
            reporters: [
                // generates ./coverage/lcov.info
                {type:'lcovonly', subdir: '.'},
                // generates ./coverage/coverage-final.json
                {type:'json', subdir: '.'},

In package.json supply either lcov.info or coverage-final.json to codecov:

  "scripts": {
    "report-coverage": "codecov",

Nodeunit + JSCoverage

Depend on nodeunit and jscoverage:

npm install nodeunit jscoverage codecov --save-dev

Add a codecov script to "scripts" in your package.json:

"scripts": {
  "test": "nodeunit test",
  "codecov": "jscoverage lib && YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE=1 nodeunit --reporter=lcov test && codecov"

Ensure your app requires instrumented code when process.env.YOURPACKAGE_COVERAGE variable is defined.

Run your tests with a command like this:

npm run codecov


Client-side JS code coverage using PhantomJS, Mocha and Blanket:

  • Configure Mocha for browser
  • Mark target script(s) with data-cover html-attribute
  • Run your tests with a command like this:
./node_modules/.bin/poncho -R lcov test/test.html && codecov


istanbul cover ./node_modules/lab/bin/lab --report lcovonly  -- -l  && codecov


  "scripts": {
    "report-coverage": "nyc report --reporter=lcov > coverage.lcov && codecov",


Add it in your package.json:

"jest": {
  "coverageDirectory": "./coverage/",
  "collectCoverage": true

Jest will now generate coverage files into coverage/

Run your tests with a command like this:

jest && codecov


There have been reports of gotwarlost/istanbul not working properly with JSX files, which provide innaccuray coverage results. Please try using ambitioninc/babel-istanbul.
