    browsyquire build status

    IMPORTANT This is a fork of the awesome proxyquireify. All credit is for the original authors.

    This fork adds the following features:

    • Wraps the "require magic" in a function to prevent it from being executed but still allow browserify to include the proxied module in the bundle.

    • Allows to mock dependencies that are outside of the main require flow (like inside a method that is executed after the mock was created).

    • Enable noCallThru globally. It adds a noCallThru function that can be called to indicate you want all your stubs to behave like if they have the property '@noCallThru': true on them. You can still override this behavior on each stub if desired by adding the property @noCallThru and set it to false.

    • injects a function called mockquire to the modules that reference it. This function is just an alias to browsyquire, but is convenient to use because you don't need to pass the local require, that is done automatically.

      So basically if you use mockquire('some-module') then the following code will prepend to your code.

      var mockquire = require('browsyquire')(require); mockquire.reset(); mockquire.noCallThru();

      This will inject the mockquire function and configure it to reset the cache, so calls from other modules don't interfere with the current one. And to not call the original methods of your stub. If you want to use mockquire and still want to call the original methods of your stubs you can do:

      mockquire.callThru(); // add this at the top of your testing code

      NOTE: It is advisable to always clear the cache with reset after your tests to prevent the normal require calls be confused by the cache created by browsyquire

      e.g:

      // in mocha
      afterEach(function () {
        mockquire.reset();
      });

    installing

    npm i browsyquire

    using it in browserify

    var fs         = require('fs')
      , proxyquire = require('browsyquire')
      , browserify = require('browserify')
      ;
     
    browserify({ debug: true })
      .plugin(proxyquire.plugin) // !!do not forget to pass the plugin...
      .require(require.resolve('./test'), { entry: true })
      .bundle()
      .pipe(fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/bundle.js'));

    And inside your tests:

    'use strict';
     
    var stubs = {
      './bar': {
          wunder: function () { return 'wirklich wunderbar'; }
        , kinder: function () { return 'schokolade'; }
      }
    };
     
    var foo = mockquire('./src/foo', stubs); // mockquire will be defined... I promise :)
    console.log(foo());

    using it as a drop in replacement

    // it is a drop in replacement for proxyquireify, so just do:
    // It works exactly like the original but with the added behavior
    // described above.
    var proxyquire = require('browsyquire')(require);

    Using the mockquire method

    //===> mouth.js
    module.exports = {
      saySomething: function () {
        return 'blah';
      }
    };
     
    //===> speaker.js
    module.exports = {
      speak: function () {
        return require('./mouth').saySomething();
      }
    };
     
    //===> some test
    describe('a test', function () {
      describe('it should not say blah, but foo', function () {
        var speaker = mockquire('./speaker', {
          './mouth': {
            saySomething: function () {
              return 'foo'
            }
          });
        var result = speaker.speak();
        expect(result).to.equal('foo'); // not blah! cause overriden by stub
      });
    });

    The mockquire function has 2 methods

    reset

    Clears the stub cache. This is done automatically after each mockquire call, but can also be called manually if for any reason there is a need to clear it.

    // using mockquire
    mockquire.reset(); // clear the stubs cache
     
    // using the old api
    var browsyquire = require('browsyquire')(require);
    browsyquire.reset();

    noCallThru

    Configure browsyquire to assume all stubs have the @noCallThru property set to true.

    // using mockquire
    mockquire.noCallThru();
     
    // using the old api
    var browsyquire = require('browsyquire')(require);
    browsyquire.noCallThru();

    Original Readme below.

    proxyquireify

    browserify >= v2 version of proxyquire.

    Proxies browserify's require in order to make overriding dependencies during testing easy while staying totally unobstrusive. To run your tests in both Node and the browser, use proxyquire-universal.

    Features

    • no changes to your code are necessary
    • non overriden methods of a module behave like the original
    • mocking framework agnostic, if it can stub a function then it works with proxyquireify
    • "use strict" compliant
    • automatic injection of require calls to ensure the module you are testing gets bundled

    Installation

    npm install proxyquireify
    

    To use with browserify < 5.1 please npm install proxyquireify@0.5 instead. To run your tests in PhantomJS, you may need to use a shim.

    Example

    foo.js:

    var bar = require('./bar');
     
    module.exports = function () {
      return bar.kinder() + ' ist ' + bar.wunder();
    };

    foo.test.js:

    var proxyquire = require('proxyquireify')(require);
     
    var stubs = {
      './bar': {
          wunder: function () { return 'wirklich wunderbar'; }
        , kinder: function () { return 'schokolade'; }
      }
    };
     
    var foo = proxyquire('./src/foo', stubs);
     
    console.log(foo());

    browserify.build.js:

    var browserify = require('browserify');
    var proxyquire = require('proxyquireify');
     
    browserify()
      .plugin(proxyquire.plugin)
      .require(require.resolve('./foo.test'), { entry: true })
      .bundle()
      .pipe(fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/bundle.js'));

    load it in the browser and see:

    schokolade ist wirklich wunderbar
    

    With Other Transforms

    If you're transforming your source code to JavaScript, you must apply those transforms before applying the proxyquireify plugin:

    browserify()
      .transform('coffeeify')
      .plugin(proxyquire.plugin)
      .require(require.resolve('./test.coffee'), { entry: true })
      .bundle()
      .pipe(fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/bundle.js'));

    proxyquireify needs to parse your code looking for require statements. If you require anything that's not valid JavaScript that acorn can parse (e.g. CoffeeScript, TypeScript), you need to make sure the relevant transform runs before proxyquireify.

    API

    proxyquire.plugin()

    proxyquireify functions as a browserify plugin and needs to be registered with browserify like so:

    var browserify = require('browserify');
    var proxyquire = require('proxyquireify');
     
    browserify()
      .plugin(proxyquire.plugin)
      .require(require.resolve('./test'), { entry: true })
      .bundle()
      .pipe(fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/bundle.js'));

    Alternatively you can register proxyquireify as a plugin from the command line like so:

    browserify -p proxyquireify/plugin test.js > bundle.js

    proxyquire.browserify()

    Deprecation Warning

    This API to setup proxyquireify was used prior to browserify plugin support.

    It has not been removed yet to make upgrading proxyquireify easier for now, but it will be deprecated in future versions. Please consider using the plugin API (above) instead.


    To be used in build script instead of browserify(), autmatically adapts browserify to work for tests and injects require overrides into all modules via a browserify transform.

    proxyquire.browserify()
      .require(require.resolve('./test'), { entry: true })
      .bundle()
      .pipe(fs.createWriteStream(__dirname + '/bundle.js'));

    proxyquire(request: String, stubs: Object)

    • request: path to the module to be tested e.g., ../lib/foo
    • stubs: key/value pairs of the form { modulePath: stub, ... }
      • module paths are relative to the tested module not the test file
      • therefore specify it exactly as in the require statement inside the tested file
      • values themselves are key/value pairs of functions/properties and the appropriate override
    var proxyquire =  require('proxyquireify')(require);
    var barStub    =  { wunder: function () { 'really wonderful'; } };
     
    var foo = proxyquire('./foo', { './bar': barStub })

    Important Magic

    In order for browserify to include the module you are testing in the bundle, proxyquireify will inject a require() call for every module you are proxyquireing. So in the above example require('./foo') will be injected at the top of your test file.

    noCallThru

    By default proxyquireify calls the function defined on the original dependency whenever it is not found on the stub.

    If you prefer a more strict behavior you can prevent callThru on a per module or per stub basis.

    If callThru is disabled, you can stub out modules that weren't even included in the bundle. Note, that unlike in proxquire, there is no option to prevent call thru globally.

    // Prevent callThru for path module only
    var foo = proxyquire('./foo', {
        path: {
          extname: function (file) { ... }
        , '@noCallThru': true
        }
      , fs: { readdir: function (..) { .. } }
    });
     
    // Prevent call thru for all contained stubs (path and fs)
    var foo = proxyquire('./foo', {
        path: {
          extname: function (file) { ... }
        }
      , fs: { readdir: function (..) { .. } }
      , '@noCallThru': true
    });
     
    // Prevent call thru for all stubs except path
    var foo = proxyquire('./foo', {
        path: {
          extname: function (file) { ... }
        , '@noCallThru': false
        }
      , fs: { readdir: function (..) { .. } }
      , '@noCallThru': true
    });
