doctest-js

Let your documentation be your testing suite.

Write JSDoc style doc examples on all your functions and then test them using doctest-js.

Contents

Getting Started

1. Install

npm install @supabase/doctest-js

2. Write @example comments

Create a JSDoc style @example on any functions that you want tested.

/**
 * Returns the sum of 2 numbers
 *
 * @example sum(1, 2)
 * //=> 3
 */
export const sum = (a, b) => {
  return a + b
}

Note that the expected return value must be prefixed by //=>.

3. Run the tests

Import the doctest function in your test suite and point it at the file.

import doctests from '@supabase/doctest-js';

describe('Doctests', () => {
  // file paths are relative to root of directory
  doctest('src/sum.js');
  doctest('src/someOtherFile.js');
});

Advanced

Multiple tests

You can run multiple tests for the same function.

/**
 * @example sum(1, 2)
 * //=> 3
 * @example sum(3, 4)
 * //=> 7
 */
export const sum = (a, b) => {
  return a + b
}

Testing classes

Testing classes requires you to pass a newed up instance of the class into the test itself. Here is a simple example:

// Arithmetic.js - a basic class which we need to test

class Arithmetic {
  constructor() {}

  /**
   * @example
   * add(1, 2)
   * //=> 3
   */
  add(a, b) {
    return a + b
  }
}

export { Arithmetic }
// Arithmetic.test.js

const { Arithmetic } = require('./Arithmetic.js');

describe('passing doctest', () => {
  doctest('./Arithmetic.js', { instance: new Arithmetic() });
});

FAQ's

Why isn't my test working?

Here are some tips:

1. Try putting the @example declaration and function on the same line
Do Avoid
  /**
  * @example add(1, 2)
  */
  /**
  * @example
  * add(1, 2)
  */
2.Try putting the return value on one line
Do Avoid
  /**
  * @example add(1, 2)
  * //=> 3 
  */
  /**
  * @example add(1, 2)
  * //=> 
  * 3 
  */
3.Try removing spaces between multiple tests
Do Avoid
  /**
  * @example add(1, 2)
  * //=> 3 
  * @example add(5, 5)
  * //=> 3 
  */
  /**
  * @example add(1, 2)
  * //=> 3 
  * 
  * @example add(5, 5)
  * //=> 3 
  */

Do I have to write @param, @returns etc?

The only JSDoc component you need is the @example.

I have a long return value. Does it have to go on one line?

No. Example function calls and return values can span multiple lines but as mentioned above, it may cause problems (with the parser ... PR's welcome!).
