zombie.js socket.io eample
This is an example of how you might go about testing a node.js app that uses Socket.IO with Zombie.js. This might not be the best way, but it's a way.
$ git clone https://github.com/justinlatimer/zombie-socket.io-example.git $ cd zombie-socket.io-example/ $ npm install
You can run the application as a standard express app and browse to it on port 8081 to get a feel for what behaviour is being tested:
$ npm start
You can run the automated tests with:
$ npm test
The following client-side behaviour is implemented by the app, which shows various features of Socket.IO
- When the client connects, the
connectevent is raised.
- As soon as the client connects, the server sends
messageevent, which is raised on the client.
- There is a button labeled
Sendwhich emits a
delayevent. The server waits the specified time period before sending back a
The client logs the events raised in an list.
There are some changes you need to make on the client side to a standard Socket.IO application to test it in zombie.
- You need to pass a full URL into the
io.connectmethod. The method Socket.IO uses to determine the full URL when a relative URL is provided does not work in zombie.
- You need to make your socket accessible from the
windowobject in order to attach events from your tests.
