Example of using Mocha programmatically in node-webkit.


    <script src="jquery.min.js"></script>

require('nw.gui').Window.get().showDevTools().resizeTo(800, 1000);

$(function () {

        return file.substr(-3) === '.js';

    }).forEach(function (file) {

    // Now, you can run the tests. (failures) {
        process.on('exit', function () {
