Co Retest

NPM version Build status Test coverage Gittip

Simple wrapper for the retest library for co-like interfaces (node.js generators) using thunks.

Currently you must use the --harmony-generators flag when running node 0.11.x to get access to generators.


npm install co-retest --save-dev


You may pass a http.Server, function or string to retest() - if the server is not listening for connections it will be bound to an ephemeral port so there is no need to keep track of ports.

var co      = require('co');
var retest  = require('co-retest');
var express = require('express');
var app = express();
app.get('/', function (req, res) {
co(function* () {
  var res = yield retest(app).get('/');
  console.log('Body: ' + res.body);
  console.log('Status: ' + res.statusCode);

All API methods from retest work as usual, but every method returns a thunkified version of request for use with co.

Please note: The thunkified function return can be called multiple times to get multiple results.
