    chai-pretty-expect npm version Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status

    Will JSON.stringify and pretty-print objects passed as 2nd, 3rd, ... parameter to expect, for nice test output.

    Installation

    npm install --save-dev chai-pretty-expect

    Usage

     var chai = require('chai');
     chai.use(require('chai-pretty-expect'));
     
     //we are inside describe
     var response;
     
     before(function(done){
        return request.post(url, { json:true, body: myObject }, handleResponse); //post invalid json
     
        function handleResponse(err, res){
            if(err){
                return done(err);
            }
            response = res;
        }
     });
     
     it("returns correct statusCode", function() {
        expect(response, response.body).to.have.property("statusCode", 200);
     };
     

    This expect will prettyPrint the response.body if statusCode is not 200. This is gives very nice error messages and makes sure that you can debug more easily when tests fail.

    So instead of [Object object] you will get nice output of body
