Install

$ npm install --save-dev gulp-mocha

const gulp = require('gulp');
const mocha = require('gulp-mocha');
 
gulp.task('default', () =>
    gulp.src('test.js', {read: false})
        // `gulp-mocha` needs filepaths so you can't have any plugins before it 
        .pipe(mocha({reporter: 'nyan'}))
);

API

mocha([options])

options

Options are passed directly to the mocha binary, so you can use any its command-line options in a camelCased form. Arrays are correctly converted to the comma separated list format Mocha expects. Listed below are some of the more commonly used options:

ui

Type: string
Default: bdd
Values: bdd tdd qunit exports

Interface to use.

reporter

Type: string
Default: spec Values: Reporters

Reporter that will be used.

This option can also be used to utilize third-party reporters. For example, if you npm install mocha-lcov-reporter you can then do use mocha-lcov-reporter as value.

globals

Type: Array

List of accepted global variable names, example ['YUI']. Accepts wildcards to match multiple global variables, e.g. ['gulp*'] or even ['*']. See Mocha globals option.

timeout

Type: number
Default: 2000

Test-case timeout in milliseconds.

bail

Type: boolean
Default: false

Bail on the first test failure.

checkLeaks

Type: boolean
Default: false

Check for global variable leaks.

grep

Type: string

Only run tests matching the given pattern which is internally compiled to a RegExp.

require

Type: Array

Require custom modules before tests are run.

compilers

Type: string
Example: js:babel-core/register

Specify a compiler.

FAQ

Test suite not exiting

If your test suite is not exiting it might be because you still have a lingering callback, most often caused by an open database connection. You should close this connection or do the following:

gulp.task('default', () =>
    gulp.src('test.js')
        .pipe(mocha())
        .once('error', () => {
            process.exit(1);
        })
        .once('end', () => {
            process.exit();
        })
);
