doesit

Doesit aims to be a concise, expressive, extensible and ubiquitous assertion library

  • concise: convenient, non-verbose api
  • extensible: very easy to extend and write plugins for
  • ubiquitous: works in all browsers and platforms
  • expressive: idiomatic syntax

why?

Doesit has a simple plugin architecture and works in all browsers including ie6

In addition, it is concise, and idiomatic:

Here, the test description expresses the expectation that x equals five, and the function body checks if the expected value actually does equal five:

// assertion lib x
// state expectation
it("should equal five", function () {
  // see if it does
  expect(x).toEqual(5)
})

You could argue that the following is therefore more idiomatic:

// doesit
var is = require('./lib/doesit'), does = is
// state expectation
it("should equal five", function () {
  // see if it does
  does(x).eql(5)
})

usage

var is = require('./lib/doesit'), does = is
is(x).true()
does(x).equal(y)

extending doesit

Adding new assertions is pretty easy and just involves calling extend with your custom assertions. For example, the following extends doesit with a palindrome assertion:

var is = require('./lib/doesit'), does = is
 
// note:
// this returns the extended lib without modifying the original instance
is = does = is.extend({
  palindrome: function (value) {
    if (!isPalindrome(value)) {
      throw new Error(String(value) + ' is not a palindrome')
    }
  }
})
 
function isPalindrome (value) {
  var reversed = value.split('').reverse().join('');
  return value === reversed;
}
 
it('should consider "hannah" a palindrome', function () {
  is('hannah').palindrome()
})
 

API

equality

// equivalence
does(value).equal(expectedValue) // alias eql
does(value).notEqual(expectedValue) // alias notEql
// strict equality
is(value).exactly(expectedValue)
is(value).notExactly(expectedValue)

is([]).empty()
is([]).notEmpty()
does([]).haveLength(0)
does([]).notHaveLength(0)
is(1).in([1, 2, 3])
is(2).notIn([1, 2, 3])
does([1, 2, 3]).contain(1)
does([1, 2, 3]).notContain(1)

does({ a: { b: { c: 1}}}).notHave('a')
