nightwatch-html-reporter

build status npm version npm downloads

Generates an HTML view of the Nightwatch.js test reports by either parsing the XML files generated by Nightwatch or by using the Nightwatch reporter options.

Compatibility

In version 0.6.4 Nightwatch changed the format of both the generated XML reports and the object the reporter receives after a test run.

Version 0.3.1 is the last version that supports Nightwatch < 0.6.4

For Nightwatch versions < 0.6.4

npm install nightwatch-html-reporter@0.3.1

For all other versions of Nightwatch

npm install nightwatch-html-reporter

Usage

Using Built in Nightwatch reporter

Requires Nightwatch >= 0.5.32.

/* In nightwatch/globals.js */
var HtmlReporter = require('nightwatch-html-reporter');
var reporter = new HtmlReporter({
	openBrowser: true,
	reportsDirectory: __dirname + '/reports'
});
module.exports = {
	reporter: reporter.fn
};

Using Command Line

Assumes you have installed globally

$ nightwatch-html-reporter -d ~/myProject/tests/nightwatch/reports

Using Nightwatch --reporter option

Create a file beside nightwatch/globals.js that is called something similar to html-reporter.js with the contents

var HtmlReporter = require('nightwatch-html-reporter');
/* Same options as when using the built in nightwatch reporter option */
var reporter = new HtmlReporter({
  openBrowser: true,
  reportsDirectory: __dirname + '/reports/'
});

module.exports = {
  write : function(results, options, done) {
    reporter.fn(results, done);
  }
};

then use the --reporter option like ./nightwatch --reporter ./html-reporter.js

Options

{
	/* True or False.  If true the generated html will be opened
		in your browser after the test run. */
	openBrowser: true,

	/* The directory you've set nightwatch to store your reports.
		On the CLI this determines where we read reports from, but on this
		interface it determines where the generated report will be saved. */
	reportsDirectory: __dirname + '/reports',

	/* The filename that the html report will be saved as. */
	reportFilename: 'generatedReport.html',

	/* Boolean.  If true we ensure the generated report filename
		is unique by appending a timestamp to the end. */
	uniqueFilename: false,

	/* Boolean.  If true we append the last suite name to
		the report filename. */
	separateReportPerSuite: false,

	/* The theme that will be used to generate the html report.
		This should match a directory under the lib/themes directory. */
	themeName: 'default',

	/* Relative path to custom theme. When this is given,
	`themeName` will be ignored. */
	customTheme: 'relative/path/to/theme.pug',

	/* If true then only errors will be shown in the report. */
	hideSuccess: false,

	/* If true we append a timestamp to the end of the generated report filename */
	uniqueFilename: false,

	/* If true we convert screenshot paths from absolute paths to relative to output file. */
	relativeScreenshots: false
}
