Run mocha tests in grunt using a node sub-process so async assertion failures won't crash grunt
Deprecated! This was a temporary module to bypass a bug in the regular grunt + mocha runners who all suffered a nasty bug that is solved by now.
You probably want to use the fully featured and tested grunt-mocha-test instead, unless you have specific reasons not to.
This plugin requires Grunt
If you haven't used Grunt before, be sure to check out the Getting Started guide, as it explains how to create a Gruntfile as well as install and use Grunt plugins. Once you're familiar with that process, you may install this plugin with this command:
npm install grunt-mocha-spawn --save-dev
In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named
mocha_spawn to the data object passed into
gruntinitConfigmocha_spawn:options:reporter: 'spec'your_target: 'test/*.test.js'
The options are passed as-is to the
gruntinitConfigmocha_spawn:options:globals: 'should'timeout: 3000ignoreLeaks: falsegrep: '*-test'ui: 'bdd'reporter: 'tap'your_target: 'test/*.test.js'
In lieu of a formal styleguide, take care to maintain the existing coding style. Add unit tests for any new or changed functionality. Lint and test your code using Grunt.
