Jasmine Core 3.5 Release Notes


This is a maintenance release of Jasmine with a number of new features and fixes


  • The output of toHaveBeenCalledWith should now be more readable

This breaks each call out onto its own line, so that it's much easier to see where each call starts and how they differ. E.g. previously the output would be:

Expected spy foo to have been called with [ 'bar', 'baz', 'qux' ] but actual calls were [ [ 42, 'wibble' ], [ 'bar' 'qux' ], [ 'grault '] ]

Now it's:

Expected spy foo to have been called with:
  [ 'bar', 'baz', 'qux' ]
but actual calls were:
  [ 42, 'wibble' ],
  [ 'bar' 'qux' ],
  [ 'grault '].
  • Add new spy strategies to resolve and reject Promises resolveTo and rejectWith

  • Add the ability to have custom async matchers

Internal notes

  • Stop testing against PhantomJS

    • PhantomJS is at end of life, and the last version of Selenium that supported it was 3.6.0, released almost three years ago. We can't test Jasmine against PhantomJS without pinning key pieces of the project to increasingly outdated versions of key libraries.
  • Fail Jasmine's CI build if the promise returned from jasmineBrowser.runSpecs is rejected

  • A bunch of other rejiggering of the Travis-CI builds to make them easier to work with

  • Also released a new browser runner that is being used by Jasmine

    • See jasmine-browser-runner
    • This is a first pass at getting this to work for other projects as well. Please try it out and let us know what isn't working for you.
  • add prettier and eslint
