    DemiTasse - Simple BDD Test Framework

    Simple and small test-framework for node stuff that's basically half of Mocha. The half it doesn't support is configurability and coverage, since those are easy to add with separate tools.

    Large dependencies are a problem. Use them sparingly but whenever useful. When creating them, keep them light.

    Install

    npm install --save-dev @pipobscure/demitasse

    To use TAP output:

    npm install --save-dev @pipobscure/demitasse-tap

    or alternatively for Pretty output

    npm install --save-dev @pipobscure/demitasse-pretty

    Usage

    basic-test.js

    import { define, it, before, beforeEach, afterEach, after } from '@pipobscure/bdd';
    describe('suite 1', () => {
      it('assertion 1', () => {
        // assert something
      });
      it('assertion 2', () => {
        // assert something
      });
    });
    describe('suite 2', () => {
      it('assertion 1', () => {
        // assert something
      });
      it('assertion 2', () => {
        // assert something
      });
    });
    npx -p @pipobscure/demitasse-run demitasse basic-test.js

    demitasse has a few options:

    demitasse [options][arguments] --describe / -d : describe separate files --global / -g : put functions into global --flat / -f : flatten the test structure --style= : oputput style tap | pretty |

    The --describe option wraps each file in a separate describe increasing the level of the test tree in case there are multiple test-files to be run.

    The --global option puts describe, it, before, beforeEach, afterEach, after into the global object, so that test-drivers don't need to require them.

    The --style= option allows for a choice in output. These need to be installed separately.

    Motivation

    I really like BDD style testing and TAP output. However mocha and its ilk, always bring in everything and the kitchen sink. I don't want to download gigabytes of packages just to have some basic tests; instead I'd rather my test-framework is small and does just what it's core job is.

    If I want more (coverage) there are tools for that. Just run the tests with c8 (or instanbul) and be merry. There is no reason that a test framework needs to be heavy weight.

    There is also a more detailed rationale for why it's a good idea to create "yet another test-framework".

    API

    All API functions are bound so they can be assigned to scope variables to imitate the global behaviour that Mocha provides.

    describe(name : string, setup : function)

    Defines a test. The setup function may contain calls to any of the other API functions. It is however a synchronous function, so you need to use the before(), beforeEach(), afterEach() and after() function to do any asynchronous setup.

    describe.skip(name : string, setup : function)

    Defines a test just like describe except when the tests are actually run these will be skipped.

    describe.only(name : string, setup : function)

    Defines a test just like describe except when the tests are actually run only those defined via .only will actually be executed. However this filtering is per test-suite. So children of tests that are run or other parents are not affected.

    describe.todo(name : string, setup : function)

    Defines a test just like describe except when the tests are actually run these will be skipped.

    it(name : string, test : function)

    Defines an assertion. This function can return a promise which will be awaited before the next assertion is made.

    Calling it() is illegal outside the synchronous describe() setup function.

    it.skip(name : string, test : function)

    Defines an assertion just like it except that it will be skipped when running the tests.

    it.only(name : string, test : function)

    Defines an assertion just like it except that when the assertions are actually made only those defined with only (of this suite) will be run.

    it.todo(name : string, test : function)

    Defines an assertion just like it and marks it as to do indicating that a failure is not a regression, but rather unimplemented.

    timeout(name : string, ms: number, test : function)

    Defines an assertion that will time out after ms milliseconds. This is similar to it(), except the test times out after ms milli-seconds.

    Calling timeout() is illegal outside the synchronous describe() setup function.

    Setup/Teardown Functions

    DemiTasse provides the following Setup/Teardown functions.

    • before(setup : function)
    • beforeEach(setup : function)
    • afterEach(setup : function)
    • after(setup : function)

    The passed runner function may return a then-able to perform asynchronous setup/teardown. If the returned then-able rejects, the entire test-case fails.

    Calling these setup/teardown functions is illegal outside the synchronous describe() setup function.
