A Grunt task to make Jasmine testing on Ext.js and Sencha Touch projects easier. It extends the grunt-contrib-jasmine task and so therefore any of the options available on that task also work here.

Getting Started

This plugin requires Grunt ~0.4.1

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-sencha-jasmine --save-dev

One the plugin has been installed, it may be enabled inside your Gruntfile with this line of JavaScript:


The "sencha_jasmine" task

This task extends the grunt-contrib-jasmine task and just provides a simpler way of getting an Ext.js and Sencha Touch project running Jasmine tasks.

Please refer to the [] docs for more details. This page will only cover the specifics for working with Ext.js.


In your project's Gruntfile, add a section named sencha_jasmine to the data object passed into grunt.initConfig().

  sencha_jasmine: {
    options: {
      specs: 'tests/specs/**/*.js',
      extFramework : './lib/ext-4.1.2',
      extLoaderPaths : {
          "MyApp" : "./www/app"
    your_target: {
      // Target-specific file lists and/or options go here. 


Reminder that this task extends the grunt-contrib-jasmine task and therefore all the options they support are also supported.


Type: String

Default value: undefined

This is the only required property and should point to the directory in which Ext.js is installed.


Type: Object

Default value: {}

Use this to set the Ext.Loader paths to point your namespaces to the correct locations. The namespaces should be relative to the root directory of your ptoject which is where the _SpecRunner.html is generated. If you're running the task against a remote server you should make sure the paths are correct for that page on the server. In the generated _SpecRunner.html this will be used to call:



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.
