API status: In Development
This article explains the test system of the frontend. It is aimed at developers that want to work with the frontend, be it creating new plugins or applications or modifying existing code using BDD. Bringing a BDD testing infrastructure to the frontend is still a work in progress and subject to (breaking) changes. Please contribute to the stability by reporting any issues or ideas to me.
- Jasmine - JS BDD framework
- Karma Runner - test runner
- Chai.js - Assertion framework
Setting up your system
brew install phantomjs
...or link it in path and set executable bit on phantomjs binary yourself.
You need at least node version 0.8 to use the latest version of karma, which we need. Karma will be installed with all other development dependencies. So just make sure you ran
within your ui directory in the appsuite repository.
Running the tests
Running the tests is pretty easy. For now, in the ui directory of your sources start the karma server with this jake task
After that, open up a browser and point it to http://localhost:9876/.
