Installation

npm install karma-sauce-launcher --save-dev

Usage

This launcher is typically used in CI to run your unit tests across many browsers and platforms on Sauce Labs. However, you can also use it locally to debug tests in browsers not available on your machine. It is expected that you are already familiar with Karma when configuring this launcher, so if you are new to Karma, head over to the Karma website.

Adding karma-sauce-launcher to an existing Karma config

To configure this launcher, you need to add two properties to your top-level Karma config, sauceLabs and customLaunchers, set the browsers array to use Sauce Labs browsers, and add the sauceLabs reporter.

The sauceLabs object defines global properties for each browser/platform while the customLaunchers object configures individual browsers. The sauceLabs reporter allows your tests results to be properly displayed on https://saucelabs.com. Here is a sample Karma config to get the launcher running:

module.exports = function(config) {
  // Example set of browsers to run on Sauce Labs
  // Check out https://saucelabs.com/platforms for all browser/platform combos
  var customLaunchers = {
    sl_chrome: {
      base: 'SauceLabs',
      browserName: 'chrome',
      platform: 'Windows 7',
      version: '35'
    },
    sl_firefox: {
      base: 'SauceLabs',
      browserName: 'firefox',
      version: '30'
    },
    sl_ios_safari: {
      base: 'SauceLabs',
      browserName: 'iphone',
      platform: 'OS X 10.9',
      version: '7.1'
    },
    sl_ie_11: {
      base: 'SauceLabs',
      browserName: 'internet explorer',
      platform: 'Windows 8.1',
      version: '11'
    }
  }

  config.set({

    // The rest of your karma config is here
    // ...
    sauceLabs: {
        testName: 'Web App Unit Tests'
    },
    customLaunchers: customLaunchers,
    browsers: Object.keys(customLaunchers),
    reporters: ['dots', 'saucelabs'],
    singleRun: true
  })
}

Note: this config assumes that process.env.SAUCE_USERNAME and process.env.SAUCE_ACCESS_KEY are set.

Example karma-sauce-launcher configs

For example configs using this launcher (using Travis CI), check out this repo's karma file, the karma-sauce-example repo (which demonstrates how to use Sauce locally), or AngularJS' Karma config.

Note: You can learn about the available browser/platform combos on the Sauce Labs platforms page, platforms configurator page and REST API page.

This defines the base configuration for the launcher. In this case it should always be SauceLabs so that browsers can use the base Sauce Labs config defined at the root sauceLabs property.

Type: String Default: Latest browser version for all browsers except Chrome which defaults to '27'

Version of the browser to use.

Accepted values: 'portrait' || 'landscape'

Set this string if your unit tests need to run on a particular mobile device orientation for Android Browser or iOS Safari.
