  'before all': function (test) {
    // This method will run before all method. 
  'before each': function (test) {
    // This method will run before invoke each test. (setup)
  'test name': function (test) {
    // Test method
  'after each': function (test) {
    // This method will run after each test. (teardown)
  'after all': function (test) {
    // This method will run after all method. 

After create test file use ct command run it.

ct file.js

It can run all test file with ct <directory name> but file must have Test in front of it name e.g. TestLogin.js
