Puppeteer to Istanbul

Build Status Coverage Status Standard Version

Convert coverage from the format outputted by puppeteer to a format consumable by Istanbul.


To Output Coverage in Istanbul Format with Puppeteer

  1. install puppeteer, npm i -D puppeteer.

  2. install puppeteer-to-istanbul, npm i -D puppeteer-to-istanbul.

  3. run your code in puppeteer with coverage enabled:

    (async () => {
      const pti = require('puppeteer-to-istanbul')
      const puppeteer = require('puppeteer')
      const browser = await puppeteer.launch()
      const page = await browser.newPage()
      // Enable both JavaScript and CSS coverage
      await Promise.all([
      // Navigate to page
      await page.goto('');
      // Disable both JavaScript and CSS coverage
      const [jsCoverage, cssCoverage] = await Promise.all([
      pti.write([...jsCoverage, ...cssCoverage], { includeHostname: true , storagePath: './.nyc_output' })
      await browser.close()

To Check Istanbul Reports

  1. install nyc, npm i nyc -g.

  2. use nyc's report functionality:

    nyc report --reporter=html

puppeteer-to-istanbul outputs temporary files in a format that can be consumed by nyc.

see istanbul for a list of possible reporters.


The best way to get started with Puppeteer to Istanbul is by installing it for yourself and running tests. PTI requires the most recent build of v8toistanbul to function properly, so start by running npm install.

Next, ensure that all tests are passing before continuing by running npm test (or equivalently, npm t). This should generate a report that gives the same coverage as seen on this README.

Note that a majority of the tests run against pre-generated fixtures, or JSON snippets, that come from Puppeteer's raw output. These are located in the \test\fixtures area. To generate one of your own, write or use one of the scripts in the test area test\sample_js, and run bin/puppeteer-js-runner.js through node, like so:

node bin/puppeteer-js-runner.js --file=/test/sample_js/sample2.js.
