API By Example helper for Express

This repository includes tools to be able to use the ABE format with a Node.js Express server. In particular we aim to support the testing of API routes to check that the responses match those expected created mocks which follow the ABE format.

Installing

npm install abe-express --save-dev

Usage

In order to use abe-express you will use this within your current testing setup

Header test

This is a helper which will run a test against your API ensuring that the header response matches that of your mock. In order to do this, it will match the status code of your mock, it will also test the expected Content-type matches (this is only done if your mock contains the Content-type in it's headers).

var abeExpress = require('abe-express'),
    myApp = require('../app.js'),
    mock = require('../mocks/example.json'),
    example = 'OK';
 
it('Should return a 200 status code', function (done) {
    abeExpress.header(myApp, mock, example, done);
});

Full test

This is a helper which will run all tests against your API, ensuring that the body response of your API matches that of your mock. It will also run the tests against the header.

var abeExpress = require('abe-express'),
    myApp = require('../app.js'),
    mock = require('../mocks/example.json'),
    example = 'OK';
 
it('Should return a 200 status code and body', function (done) {
    abeExpress.full(myApp, mock, example, done);
});
