Minctest

This is a Node.js port of Minctest, a very minimal unit-testing "framework" originally written in ANSI C. It's handy when you want some real simple unit tests for a small project.

Basically, it implements assertion and equal functions. It'll track and time how many tests pass and fail. Failed tests will also display which line the failing test code was on.

Features

  • Contained in a single file.
  • Reports file and line number for failed assertions.
  • Reports run time for each test.
  • Tests continue even after an assertion fails.
  • Has assertion for checking float equality.
  • Released under the zlib license - free for nearly any use.

Installation

You can either copy minctest.js into your project, or install using npm with npm install minctest.

Example

var l = require("minctest");

l.run("test1", function(){
   l.ok('a' == 'a');          //assert true
});

l.run("test2", function(){
   l.equal(5, 5);             //compare integers
   l.fequal(5.5, 5.5);        //compare floats
});

process.exit(l.results()); //show results

That produces the following output:

        test1         pass: 1   fail: 0      0ms
        test2         pass: 2   fail: 0      1ms
ALL TESTS PASSED (3/3)

If you're using Minctest in your project, let me know. I could add a link back.
