chai-helpers

A collection of various chai helper functions.

In Node.js, it is set up by calling require('fzk-chai-helpers').addMethods(chai) before running any tests.

Currently, there are one helper:

  • approximate: Compared two objects recursively just as deep.equal(actual), but does not require all values to be equal. It is perfect for testing that key values are present in an object, without requiring that no optional (or future) values are present.

    Example (all examples evaluate to passed):

    expect([ 1, 2, 3]).to.approximate([ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 ])
    expect([ 1, 2, 3]).not.to.approximate([ 2, 3, 4, 5 ])
    expect({ a: 1, b: { c: 2 } })
        .to.approximate({ a: 1, b: { c: 2, d: 'some value' } })
