grunt-simple-mocha

A simple wrapper for running tests with Mocha. It's pretty much a cleaned up and plugin-ized version of this helpful Gist by johnkpaul.

  1. Install this grunt plugin next to your project's [grunt.js gruntfile][getting_started] with: npm install grunt-simple-mocha

  2. Then add this line to your project's grunt.js gruntfile:

    grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-simple-mocha');

In your grunt.js:

grunt.initConfig({
  mocha: {
    all: {
      src: 'test/**/*.js',
      options: {
        globals: ['should'],
        timeout: 3000,
        ignoreLeaks: false,
        grep: '*-test',
        ui: 'bdd',
        reporter: 'tap'
      }
    }
  }
});
 
// For this to work, you need to have run `npm install grunt-simple-mocha` 
grunt.loadNpmTasks('grunt-simple-mocha');
 
// Add a default task. 
grunt.registerTask('default', 'mocha');

Now, you can just run grunt mocha in your shell to run the tests. That's it!

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][grunt].
