A JavaScript Testing Framework

Jasmine is a Behavior Driven Development testing framework for JavaScript. It does not rely on browsers, DOM, or any JavaScript framework. Thus it's suited for websites, Node.js projects, or anywhere that JavaScript can run.

  • Change directory. - cd my-project/jasmine
  • Unzip the dist. - unzip jasmine-standalone-{#.#.#}.zip

<link rel="shortcut icon" type="image/png" href="lib/jasmine-{#.#.#}/jasmine_favicon.png">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="lib/jasmine-{#.#.#}/jasmine.css">

<script src="lib/jasmine-{#.#.#}/jasmine.js"></script>
<script src="lib/jasmine-{#.#.#}/jasmine-html.js"></script>
<script src="lib/jasmine-{#.#.#}/boot0.js"></script>

Supported environments

Jasmine tests itself across popular browsers (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge) as well as nodejs.

Environment Supported versions
Node 12.17+, 14, 16
Safari 14-15
Chrome Evergreen
Firefox Evergreen, 91
Edge Evergreen

For evergreen browsers, each version of Jasmine is tested against the version of the browser that is available to us at the time of release. Other browsers, as well as older & newer versions of some supported browsers, are likely to work. However, Jasmine isn't tested against them and they aren't actively supported.

See the release notes for the supported environments for each Jasmine release.
