grunt-istanbul Build Status

JavaScript codecoverage tool for Grunt

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

Install this grunt plugin next to your project's Gruntfile.js with: npm install grunt-istanbul

Then add this line to your project's Gruntfile.js gruntfile:

grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-istanbul');

Documentation

This grunt plugin uses Istanbul to perform the code coverage tasks. It provides the following grunt tasks:

  • instrument: instruments a file or a directory tree
  • reloadTasks: override instrumented tasks
  • storeCoverage: store coverage from global
  • makeReport: make coverage report

To use this grunt-istanbul plugin, register a grunt task to run the following:

  1. Instrument your source code
  2. Run your test suite against your instrumented source code
  3. Store your coverage results
  4. Make the report

For step 2, an environment variable can be used to determine which path to use for loading the source code to run the tests against. For example, when you normally run your tests you want them to point directly at your source code. But when you run your instanbul code coverage task you want your tests to point at your instrumented source code. The grunt-env plugin can be used for setting an environment variable in a grunt task. Here's an example solution that solves this problem using grunt-env and grunt-mocha-test:

// in Gruntfile.js
module.exports = function (grunt) {

  grunt.initConfig({
    env: {
      coverage: {
        APP_DIR_FOR_CODE_COVERAGE: '../test/coverage/instrument/app/'
      }
    },
    instrument: {
      files: 'app/*.js',
      options: {
        lazy: true,
        basePath: 'test/coverage/instrument/'
      }
    },
    mochaTest: {
      options: {
        reporter: 'spec'
      },
      src: ['test/*.js']
    },
    storeCoverage: {
      options: {
        dir: 'test/coverage/reports'
      }
    },
    makeReport: {
      src: 'test/coverage/reports/**/*.json',
      options: {
        type: 'lcov',
        dir: 'test/coverage/reports',
        print: 'detail'
      }
    }
  });

  grunt.registerTask('coverage', ['env:coverage', 'instrument', 'mochaTest',
    'storeCoverage', 'makeReport']);
};
// require_helper.js
module.exports = function (path) {
  return require((process.env.APP_DIR_FOR_CODE_COVERAGE || '../app/') + path);
};
// using requireHelper in a test
var requireHelper = require('../require_helper');
var formValidator = requireHelper('form_validator');

You can also pass an instrumenter argument to the instrument options as well as any other arguments that your instrumenter takes.

// in Gruntfile.js
module.exports = function (grunt) {
 var isparta = require('isparta');
  grunt.initConfig({
    instrument: {
      files: 'app/*.es6',
      options: {
        lazy: true,
        basePath: 'test/coverage/instrument/'
        babel: {ignore: false, experimental: true, extensions: ['.es6']},
        instrumenter: isparta.Instrumenter
      }
    }
  });
};

If you want to specify a current working directory, you can specify a path the cwd options :

// in Gruntfile.js
module.exports = function (grunt) {
 var isparta = require('isparta');
  grunt.initConfig({
    instrument: {
      files: '**/*.es6',
      options: {
        cwd: 'app/'
        lazy: true,
        basePath: 'test/coverage/instrument/'
        babel: {ignore: false, experimental: true, extensions: ['.es6']}
      }
    }
  });
};

If you wan to insturment multiple locations, you specify multiple task targets:

// in Gruntfile.js
module.exports = function (grunt) {

  grunt.initConfig({
    env: {
      coverage: {
        APP_DIR_FOR_CODE_COVERAGE: '../test/coverage/instrument/app/'
      }
    },
    instrument: {
      api: {
        files: 'app/*.js',
        options: {
          basePath: 'test/coverage/instrument/'
        }
      },
      web: {
        files: 'web/*.js',
        options: {
          basePath: 'test/coverage/instrument/'
        }
      }
    },
    mochaTest: {
      options: {
        reporter: 'spec'
      },
      src: ['test/*.js']
    },
    storeCoverage: {
      options: {
        dir: 'test/coverage/reports'
      }
    },
    makeReport: {
      src: 'test/coverage/reports/**/*.json',
      options: {
        type: 'lcov',
        dir: 'test/coverage/reports',
        print: 'detail'
      }
    }
  });

  grunt.registerTask('coverage', function(arg) {
    var insturment = arg ? 'insturment:' + arg : 'insturment';
    
    grunt.task.run(['env:coverage', instrument, 'mochaTest',
      'storeCoverage', 'makeReport']);
  });
# coverage with api and web insturmentation
$ grunt coverage
# coverage with api insturmentation
$ grunt coverage:api
# coverage with web insturmentation
$ grunt coverage:web

By default only files that have coverage are stored. When the 'include-all-sources' option is set to true it will show all instrumented files even if their coverage percentage is 0. To see all instrumented files you can init the storeCoverage task as follows:

grunt.initConfig({
  storeCoverage: {
    options: {
      dir: 'test/coverage/reports',
      'include-all-sources': true
    }
  }
});

Also, checkout the example Gruntfile.js in this repo (note that you do not need to implement the reloadTasks task in this example): Gruntfile.js

For information about the configuration options use the command line istanbul help config.
