MooTools Core Specs

This repository is intended to provide the specification infrastructure for MooTools Core.

The infrastructure uses Jasmine as a UnitTest-Library. It is possible to run Specs via the browser, via JSTestDriver and via NodeJS.

Running the tests in a browser


# init all git submodules
git submodule update --init --recursive


To run the tests, you could just open the file Specs/Runner/runner.html in a browser, however for some tests you you need some webserver, like apache or python SimpleServer:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8080

Now you can open http://localhost:8080/Specs/ in the browser to choose a preset or open http://localhost:8080/Specs/Runner/runner.html?preset=core-1.4 to run the 1.4 tests.


The JSTestDriver setup might be outdated


Clone the MooTools Core repository and initialize the submodules.

Set up the Specs:

git submodule update --init --recursive
cd Specs/Runner
chmod +x server test runner runner.js buildCommonJS buildJSTDConfiguration


  • NodeJS
  • PHP (for Packager)


  • Open index.html in your favorite browser and press the right link
  • Run the JSTD Server
    • Start via ./server {options}
    • Point one or more browsers to http://localhost:9876
    • Run all tests via ./test
  • Run in NodeJS via ./runner {options}

Available Options

Options are specified via JSON.

Example for JSTD ./server '{"version": 1.3, "path": "../core/", "specs": [1.2, "1.3base", "1.3client"]}'

Example for NodeJS ./runner '{"specs": ["1.3base"], "path": "../core/"}'

Options "path" - Only needs to be specified if the core-specs repository is being used outside of the MooTools Core repository "specs" - The specs to run, see Sets.js "version" - The version of MooTools to be used for running the specs
