Using Karma with RequireJS & Angular? #938

I'm new to Karma and RequireJS and I'm trying to set up unit testing with my project. The project is based on angular-brunch-seed, but we've added RequireJS to it.
I cannot figure out how to load the correct modules. I am sure I'm doing something wrong, but I can't figure out what the problem is. I've tried different ways of loading the app in my test:

define(function (require) {  
    app: require('/base/app/app.js'),
    routes: require('/base/app/routes/index.js'),
    routesAdmin: require('/ba,se/app/routes/admin/index.js'),
    adminInit: require('/base/app/routes/admin/controllers/admin-init.js')
require(['app'], function(app){
  console.log('app is loaded?');

require(['/base/app/configuration/index.js'], function(app){
  var configuration = require('configuration');

Nothing works. I get the error:

Uncaught Error: Module name "configuration" has not been loaded yet for context: _. Use require([])

Does anyone have suggestions to loading RequireJS in a Karma unit test?

Hi Matthew,

There is a nice guide here explaining how to make Require.js works along with Karma.

I also made a simple example so you cab quickly see how to do, find it here.

This example might also help you.
