Express Route Fake

Express route fake is a small library for faking common express router verbs (get, put, post, delete) and capturing their action functions for ease of testing. This module is intended for use with the Mockery library and does not perform any node cache manipultion on its own.

This module was originally created as a proof of concept for a blog post, so it was pulled from hastily written source. All behavior will be wrapped in tests before release version 1.0.0 is made available. Until that point, unexpected behavior may occur from time to time without notice.

Basic Info

Installation: npm install express-route-fake --save-dev

Use:

'use strict';'

var expressRouteFake = require('express-route-fake');
var mockery = require('mockery');

// Example uses Mocha syntax
describe('My test suite', function () {
    
    var myRouteModule;
    
    beforeEach(function () {
        mockery.resetCache();
        expressRouteFake.reset();
        
        mockery.enable({
            warnOnReplace: false,
            warnOnUnregistered: false
        });
        
        // Registering as a mock gives direct access to stored values in expressRouteFake module
        mockery.registerMock('express', expressRouteFake);
        myRouteModule = require('../routes/myRouteModule');
    });
    
    afterEach(function () {
        mockery.deregisterAll();
        mockery.disable();
    });
    
});

Testing a simple get action:

it('should perform expected behavior', function () {
    var action = expressRouteFake.getRouteAction('get', '/route/path');
    var status = 0;
    
    var req = {};
    var res = { status: function (statusCode) { status = statusCode; } };
     
    action(req, res);
    
    assert(status === 200);
});

expressRouteFake.reset()

  • Resets expressRouteFake back to initial state

expressRouteFake.getRouteAction()

  • Endpoint contract: expressRouteFake.getRouteAction(httpVerb:String, routePath:String): Function
  • Throws error if path does not exist for provided httpVerb

expressRouteFake.renderData.call()
