Grails Jasmine Resources Plugin

This plugin is no longer maintained as the asset-pipeline plugin is now the standard in grails applications.

This plugin adds Jasmine resources to your Grails Application.

Jasmine is a behavior-driven development framework for testing JavaScript code. It does not depend on any other JavaScript frameworks. It does not require a DOM. And it has a clean, obvious syntax so that you can easily write tests.

It uses the Resources Plugin to handle resources gracefully. All you need to do is create a resource module with your Jasmine specs that depend on the 'jasmine' module. There is also a controller for standalone manual testing. Just navigate to <app>/jasmine/<module-name> to access the spec runner.

If the Grails jQuery plugin is installed, the Jasmine-jQuery script will be automatically included in the spec runner.


Add the plugin to the plugins block of your BuildConfig.groovy:

compile ":jasmine-resources:0.1.2"

To add Jasmine specs to your grails project:

  • Install the plugin.
  • Reference your Jasmine spec files in your ApplicationResources file, or wherever you are defining your resources. This example assumes spec files are located within web-app/js/spec/, and source files in web-app/js/src/.
modules = {
    'example' {
        dependsOn 'jasmine'
        resource url: 'js/src/Player.js', disposition: 'head'
        resource url: 'js/src/Song.js', disposition: 'head'
        resource url: 'js/spec/SpecHelper.js', disposition: 'head'
        resource url: 'js/spec/PlayerSpec.js', disposition: 'head'

The example module above is included with the plugin and is viewable at <app>/jasmine/example.
