This library provides a Fluid component and static functions that assist in using Testem.

Key Features

  1. Provides a mechanism to collect client-side code coverage data and combine that with browser coverage.
  2. Provides the ability to launch and wait for server-side components to start up before each test run.
  3. Provides the ability to safely shut down server-side test fixtures after each test run.
  4. Provides cleanup mechanisms to remove temporary browser content after each test run.

Usage instructions

To use this grade from Testem, install this package as a development dependency using a command like npm install --save-dev gpii-testem or yarn add --dev gpii-testem. Note: There is currently a bug in newer versions of Testem, if you use anything higher than version 1.13.0, you may experience hangs when attempting to quit testem from the console.

Once you have Testem installed, you will need to create a javascript configuration file, which will allow you to make use of the dynamic configuration options available via the testem.js file.

The most basic example of a file might look something like:

var fluid = require("infusion");

var my  = fluid.registerNamespace("my");
fluid.defaults("my.testem.grade", {
    gradeNames: ["gpii.testem"],
    testPages:  ["tests/my-awesome-test.html"]

module.exports = my.testem.grade().getTestemOptions();

To make use of the code coverage support provided by gpii.testem, you must load the "coverage sender" in your HTML fixtures. See the coverage docs for details.

Once you have created your configuration javascript file, you can launch Testem with your configuration using a command like the following:

node node_modules/testem/testem.js --file path/to/your-testem-config.js

If you save your configuration to the file name testem.js in your package root, you can launch Testem using a command like node node_modules/testem/testem.js or node node_modules/testem/testem.js ci.
