Aloe

Scenario description and test runner for Herbs

Installing

$ npm install @herbsjs/aloe

Using

const { spec, scenario, given, check, samples } = require('@herbsjs/aloe')

const taskCountSpec = spec({
    'Change count for the task': scenario({
        'Given a valid task': given({ task: 'do it', count: 0 }),
        'When increase count': when((ctx) => (ctx.count++)),
        'Must have a increased count': check((ctx) => { assert.ok(ctx.count === 1) }),
    }),
})

How to use

Basic Spec

A spec represents the primary structure where the scenarios will be placed. It can have one or several scenarios:

const updateUserSpec = spec({
    'Update valid User': scenario({ ... }),
    'Do not update invalid User': scenario({ ... }),
})

A scenario represents a context with input (given), action (when) and the output validation (check).

const taskCountSpec = spec({
    'Change count for the task': scenario({
        'Given a valid task': given({ task: 'do it', count: 0 }),
        'When increase count': when((ctx) => (ctx.count++)),
        'Must have a increased count': check((ctx) => { assert.ok(ctx.count === 1) }),
    }),
})

It is possible to have many given and check on the same scenario.

const billingSpec = spec({
    'Calculate a valid bill': scenario({
        'Given valid items': given({ ... }),
        'Given a discount': given(async () => { ... }),
        'When calculate the bill': when((ctx) => ...),
        'Must have a valid bill': check((ctx) => ...),
        'Must have a discount': check((ctx) => ...),
    }),
})

It's also possible to run only a specific scenario.

const taskCountSpec = spec({
    'Change count for the task': scenario.only({
        'Given a valid task': given({ task: 'do it', count: 0 }),
        'When increase count': when((ctx) => (ctx.count++)),
        'Must have a increased count': check((ctx) => { assert.ok(ctx.count === 1) }),
    }),
})

Use Case Spec

When informed a use case the spec will assume all the scenarios are about this use case.

This will change the behavior of each scenario since it will not necessary to declare a when.

In order to run, the scenario expects a given returning a object with request, user (for use case authentication) and injection.

The result of the use case execution is stored in ctx.response.

const updateUser = require('./updateUser')

const updateUserSpec = spec({

    usecase: updateUser, 
    
    'Update a existing user when it is valid': scenario({
        'Given a valid user': given({
            request: { id: 1 },
            user: { can: true },
            injection: { userRepo: ... },
        }),
        // when: default for use case
        'Must run without errors': check((ctx) => { assert.ok(ctx.response.isOk) }),
        'Must confirm update': check((ctx) => { assert.ok(ctx.response.ok === true) })
    }),
})

Samples

If instead of validating the scenario with just one input you want to validate the set of inputs it is possible to use samples.

const updateProjectSpec = spec({

    usecase: updateProject,
    
    'Update a existing project': scenario({
        'Projects with due dates': samples([
            { duedate: ... },               // item 1
            { duedate: ... },               // item 2
        ]),
        'Projects with tasks': samples([
            { tasks: [] },                  // item 1
            { tasks: [{ task: ... }] },     // item 2
        ]),
        'Given a valid project': given((ctx) => ({
            request: ctx.sample,  // each item in `samples()`
            ...
        })),
        'Given a repository with a existing project': given((ctx) => ... ),
        'Must run without errors': check((ctx) => ... ),
        'Must confirm update': check((ctx) => ... )
    })
}),

In the above scenario 'Update a existing project' it will run four times, one for each item in each samples. The content of each run is available on ctx.sample.

Context

The context is created by samples or givens.

const updateUserSpec = spec({

    'Update a existing user': scenario({
        'Given a valid user': given({ name: 'Claudia' }),
        'Print user name': check((ctx) => { console.log(ctx.name) }),
        ...

Or

const updateUserSpec = spec({

    'Update a existing user': scenario({
        'Valid users': samples([
            { name: 'Claudia' },               // item 1
            { name: 'Claudio' },               // item 2
        ]),
        'Given a valid user': given((ctx) => ctx.sample),
        'Print user name': check((ctx) => { console.log(ctx.name) }),
        ...

Assertion

To validate a scenario it is necessary to go through checks with its assertions. If an assertion throws an exception, it is understood that that check failed.

It is possible to use any assertion library, including native node.js assertion.

const createUserSpec = spec({

    usecase: createUser, 
    
    'Create a new user': scenario({
        'Given a valid user': given(...),
        'Must run without errors': check((ctx) => { 
            assert.ok(ctx.response.isOk) 
        }),
        'Must return the created user': check((ctx) => { 
            assert.ok(ctx.response.ok === aGivenUser()) 
        })
    }),
})

Runner

The runner is responsible for executing the scenarios and showing the results.

const { runner } = require('@herbsjs/aloe/runner')

// running a set of pre-loaded specs
await runner({ specs })

// or

// load specs from herbarium
await runner({ herbarium })

// or

// load specs from the current directory (*.spec.js)
await runner() // specsPath can be especified

The Herb

The gel inside of the leaves of the Aloe plant can be used externally to treat minor burns, sun burn, cuts, scrapes and poison ivy. Aloe gel is good for moisturizing the skin and is a main ingredient of many skin care products.
