Jasmine... For Python!

FOSSA Status

The Jasmine Python package contains helper code for developing Jasmine projects for Python-based web projects (Django, Flask, etc.) or for JavaScript projects where Python is a welcome partner. It serves up a project's Jasmine suite in a browser so you can focus on your code instead of manually editing script tags in the Jasmine runner HTML file.

For documentation on writing Jasmine tests, check out the Jasmine Documentation site.


The Jasmine packages for Python are discontinued. There will be no further releases. We recommend migrating that most users migrate to the jasmine-browser-runner NPM package, which is the direct replacement for the jasmine Python pacage.

If jasmine-browser-runner doesn't meet your needs, one of these might:

  • The jasmine npm package to run specs in Node.js.
  • The standalone distribution to run specs in browsers with no additional tools.
  • The jasmine-core npm package if all you need is the Jasmine assets. This is the direct equivalent of the jasmine-core Python package.


This package contains:

  • A small server that builds and executes a Jasmine suite for a project
  • A command line script to run your tests (handy for continuous integration)

You can get all of this by: pip install jasmine or by adding jasmine to your requirements.txt.

_init_ A Project

To initialize a project for Jasmine:

$ jasmine init

This will create a spec directory and configuration yaml template for you.


Customize spec/javascripts/support/jasmine.yml to enumerate the source files, stylesheets, and spec files you would like the Jasmine runner to include. You may use dir glob strings.


Standalone Server

Start the Jasmine server:

$ jasmine server

Point your browser to localhost:8888. The suite will run every time this page is re-loaded.

Start Jasmine on a different port:

$ jasmine server -p 1337

Point your browser to localhost:1337.

For a full list of commands, type jasmine -h

Continuous Integration

For Continuous Integration environments, add this task to the project build steps:

$ jasmine ci

The browser used by selenium can be changed by exporting JASMINE_BROWSER

$ export JASMINE_BROWSER=phantomjs
$ jasmine ci

or adding --browser to jasmine-ci

$ jasmine ci --browser phantomjs

For a full list of commands, type jasmine ci -h
