jasmine-node

Build Status

This node.js module makes the wonderful Pivotal Lab's jasmine (http://github.com/pivotal/jasmine) spec framework available in node.js.

install

npm install jasmine-node -g

usage

Write the specifications for your code in *.js and *.coffee files in the spec/ directory (note: your specification files must end with either .spec.js or .spec.coffee; otherwise jasmine-node won't find them!). You can use sub-directories to better organise your specs.

If you have installed the npm package, you can run it with:

jasmine-node

If you aren't using npm, you should add pwd/lib to the $NODE_PATH environment variable, then run:

node lib/jasmine-node/cli.js

You can supply the following arguments:

  • --autotest, provides automatic execution of specs after each changes
  • --coffee, allow execution of .coffee specs
  • --color, indicates spec output should uses color to indicates passing (green) or failing (red) specs
  • --noColor, do not use color in the output
  • --verbose, verbose output as the specs are run
  • --junitreport, export tests results as junitreport xml format'

Checkout spec/SampleSpecs.js to see how to use it.

async tests

jasmine-node includes an alternate syntax for writing asynchronous tests. Accepting a done callback in the specification will trigger jasmine-node to run the test asynchronously waiting until the done() callback is called.

    it("should respond with hello world", function(done) {
      request("http://localhost:3000/hello", function(error, response, body){
        expect(body).toEqual("hello world");
        done();
      });
    });

An asynchronous test will fail after 5000 ms if done() is not called. This timeout can be changed by setting jasmine.DEFAULT_TIMEOUT_INTERVAL or by passing a timeout interval in the specification.

it("should respond with hello world", function(done) {
  request("http://localhost:3000/hello", function(error, response, body){
    done();
  }, 250);  // timeout after 250 ms
});

development

Install the dependent packages by running:

npm install

Run the specs before you send your pull request:

scripts/specs

or

scripts/specs --verbose
