Continuous testing based on file modifications by Guard, manifold configurable rules with RegEx and Ruby.
Fast headless testing in PhantomJS, a full featured WebKit browser with native support for various web standards: DOM handling, CSS selector, JSON, Canvas, and SVG.
Runs on Mac OS X, Linux and Windows.
How it works
You configure Guard to trigger certain specs based on file modifications.
Guard uses PhantomJS to request the Jasmine Spec Runner headless and notifies you of the result in the terminal and optionally over system notifications like Growl, Libnotify or Notifu.
Guard and Guard::Jasmine
Please be sure to have Guard installed.
Install the gem:
$ gem install guard-jasmine
Add it to your
Gemfile, preferably inside the development group:
Add guard definition to your
Guardfile by running this command:
$ guard init jasmine
Please read the detailed installation and configuration instructions at Jasminerice.
In short, you add it to your
group :development, :test do gem 'jasmine' end
and add a route for the Jasmine Test Runner to
if ["development", "test"].include? Rails.env mount Jasminerice::Engine => "/jasmine" end
Next you create the directory
asset pipeline manifest in
Rails 2 & 3
You need the PhantomJS browser installed on your system. You can download binaries for Mac OS X and Windows from the PhantomJS download section.
Alternatively you can install Homebrew on Mac OS X and install it with:
$ brew install phantomjs
If you are using Ubuntu 10.10, you can install it with apt:
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:jerome-etienne/neoip $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get install phantomjs
You can also build it from source for several other operating systems, please consult the PhantomJS build instructions.
Please read the Guard usage documentation.
Guard::Jasmine can be adapted to all kind of projects. Please read the Guard documentation for more information about the Guardfile DSL.
