Description

GenTests is a unit test generator.



Installation

npm install gentests -g


Usage

$ gentests --source sourceFile [--corrector correctorPath] [--delete-cache] [--run exampleFile] 


Quick Start

In this example, we'll use a structure like the one below.

📁 package-root                
│
└───📁 cjs
│    │
│    │─── 📝 index.cjs
│    │
│    └─── 📝 user-code.cjs
│
└───📁 test
     │
     └─── 📝 index.specs.js

We define a function with a jsDocs formatted comment.

The system will parse this comment and extract every @example section.

Every @example section will be used to generate a new test case.

From an example section, you can use a formatted pattern like the one below:

// expect: to....

We'll use the "expect" here to overwrite the default expectation in the generated test case. If it is not provided, the system will use what has been evaluated at runtime.

📝 index.cjs content ↴

/**
 * This function tries to sort variables
 * by key
 * 
 * @example
 * // expect: to.be.above(2)
 * // should: eat something
 * // when: it's hungry
 * sortEntryByKey({aa: 1, bb: 2})
 * 
 * @example
 * // expect: to.equal(5)
 * sortEntryByKey({aa: 5, cc: 2})
 * 
 * @param currentEntity
 * @returns {*}
 */
let sortEntryByKey = (currentEntity) =>
    {
        if (currentEntity instanceof Object)
        {
            currentEntity = Object.keys({...currentEntity}).sort().reduce(
                (obj, key) =>
                {
                    obj[key] = currentEntity[key];
                    return obj;
                },
                {}
            );

            return currentEntity;
        }

        return currentEntity;
    };

module.exports.sortEntryByKey = sortEntryByKey;



From the CLI, go to the "package-root" directory, then run:

💻

$ gentests --source ./cjs/index.cjs
--delete-cache 

This process will generate a test file in a test directory that should look like this:


const chai = require("chai");
const expect = chai.expect;

// ===========================================================================
// Units under test imports
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
const {
    add,
    sortEntryByKey,
    varsEqual,
} = require("../demo/code/index.cjs");
// ===========================================================================
// Tests
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
describe("In source code", function() {

    describe("#sortEntryByKey", function() {
        it(`should eat something when it's hungry`, function() {

            const currentEntity = {
                "aa": 1,
                "bb": 2
            };

            const result = sortEntryByKey(currentEntity);

            expect(result).to.be.above(2);
        });
    });

    describe("#sortEntryByKey", function() {
        it(`should sort entry by key when currentEntity is {  "aa": 5,  "cc": 2}`, function() {

            const currentEntity = {
                "aa": 5,
                "cc": 2
            };

            const result = sortEntryByKey(currentEntity);

            expect(result).to.equal(5);
        });
    });

});



Options


Options default Expect Description
--source string Path to the source file
--run string A common Js file containing some invocations
--delete-cache false boolean To reset the GenPack cache
--esm false boolean To generate tests for ESM
--corrector string Path to a json file where each key will be replaced by their corresponding value in the generated test


Examples


With the --corrector option

📝 ./cjs/corrector.json content ↴

{
  "In source code": "****** REPLACED *******"
}

💻

$ gentests --source ./cjs/index.cjs --run cjs/user-code.cjs --corrector cjs/corrector.json --delete-cache 
...
// ===========================================================================
// Tests
// ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
describe("****** REPLACED *******", function ()
{

    describe("#sortEntryByKey", function ()
    {
        it(`should sort entry by key when currentEntity is {  "aa": 1,  "bb": 2}`, function ()
        {

        ...


With the --run option

Define a file with custom calls. The system will try to generate a test case for every call.

📝 user-code.cjs content ↴

// -----------------------------------------
// User Code
// -----------------------------------------
const {varsEqual, sortEntryByKey, add} = require("./demo/code/index.cjs");

sortEntryByKey({aa: 1, bb: 2});
varsEqual("1", "2");
varsEqual("aa", "aa");
varsEqual(54, "asfdgdok");
add(51, 53);
// -----------------------------------------

From the CLI, go to the "package-root" directory, then run:

💻

$ gentests --source ./cjs/index.cjs --run cjs/user-code.cjs
--delete-cache 

This process will generate a test directory against every invocation done in the [user-code.cjs] file
