    This is the Firebase Authentication component of the Firebase JS SDK.

    This package is not intended for direct usage, and should only be used via the officially supported firebase package.


    The modular Auth SDK has both unit tests and integration tests, along with a host of npm scripts to run these tests. The most important commands are:

    Command Description
    yarn test This will run lint, unit tests, and integration tests against the live environment
    yarn test:<platform> Runs all browser tests, unit and integration
    yarn test:<platform>:unit Runs only <platform> unit tests
    yarn test:<platform>:unit:debug Runs <platform> unit tests, auto-watching for file system changes
    yarn test:<platform>:integration Runs only integration tests against the live environment
    yarn test:<platform>:integration:local Runs all headless <platform> integration tests against the emulator (more below)

    Where <platform> is "browser" or "node". There are also cordova tests, but they are not broken into such granular details. Check out package.json for more.

    Integration testing with the emulator

    To test against the emulator, set up the Auth emulator (instructions). The easiest way to run these tests is to use the firebase emulators:exec command (documentation). You can also manually start the emulator separately, and then point the tests to it by setting the GCLOUD_PROJECT and FIREBASE_AUTH_EMULATOR_HOST environmental variables. In addition to the commands listed above, the below commands also run various tests:

    • yarn test:integration:local — Executes Node and browser emulator integration tests, as well as the Selenium WebDriver tests

    • yarn test:webdriver — Executes only the Selenium WebDriver integration tests

    For example, to run all integration and WebDriver tests against the emulator, you would simply execute the following command:

    firebase emulators:exec --project foo-bar --only auth "yarn test:integration:local"

    Selenium Webdriver tests

    These tests assume that you have both Firefox and Chrome installed on your computer and in your $PATH. The tests will error out if this is not the case. The WebDriver tests talk to the emulator, but unlike the headless integration tests, these run in a browser robot environment; the assertions themselves run in Node. When you run these tests a small Express server will be started to serve the static files the browser robot uses.
