Build testScripts and devScripts with component

component-test-builder - Write tests easily with component

This is a custom builder for component that does everything the vanilla builder does and also adds scripts listed in devScripts and scripts listed in testScripts. It then generates two script files build/test-build.js and build/test-loader.js. test-build.js includes the build of the components with dev and test scripts. test-loader.js requires all the testScripts so that all the tests can be imported and run, this is particularly useful for mocha tests.

Building is trivial. Simply type this command::

component test-build

To run all of your tests with mocha. Simply add script and style tags for mocha and script tags that include build/test-build.js and build/test-loader.js. The basic html test runner would be as follows::

  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>Mocha Tests</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="mocha.css" />
  <div id="mocha"></div>
  <script src="mocha.js"></script>
  <script src="build/test-build.js"></script>
  <script src="build/test-loader.js"></script>

The test builder can also be used with something like Karma. More details will come soon.
