  • colors — Type: Number|Boolean Default: 1
    Specifies whether the output should have colored text. Possible integer values: 0 to 2. Set to 1 (or true) to enable colors. Set to 2 to use the ANSI escape codes. Option 2 can be useful if, for example, you're running your tests from a sub-process, and the colors aren't showing up.

  • cleanStack — Type: Number|Boolean Default: 1
    Specifies the filter level for the error stacks. Possible integer values: 0 to 3. Set to 1 (or true) to only filter out lines with jasmine-core path from stacks. Set to 2 to filter out all node_modules paths. Set to 3 to also filter out lines with no file path in it.

  • verbosity — Type: Number|Boolean Default: 4
    (alias: verbose) Specifies the verbosity level for the reporter output. Possible integer values: 0 to 4. When a Boolean value is passed, true defaults to 4 and false defaults to 0. Level 0: reports errors only. Level 1: also displays a summary. Level 2: also reports pending specs. Level 3: additionally displays all suites and specs as a list, except disabled specs. Level 4: also lists disabled specs.

  • listStyle — Type: String Default: "indent"
    Indicates the style of suites/specs list output. Possible values: "flat" or "indent". Setting this to "indent" provides a better view especially when using nested (describe) suites. This option is only effective when verbosity level is set to 3, 4 or true.

  • activity — Type: Boolean Default: false
    Specifies whether to enable the activity indicator animation that outputs the current spec that is being executed. If your tests log extra data to console, this option should be disabled or they might be overwritten.


  • v1.2.7 (2016-08-21)

    • cleanStack option would render the first line as the error message, not respecting messages with \n (new-line) in them. Fixed.
    • Updated dev-dependencies.

  • v1.2.6 (2016-05-09)

    • Failed specs that don't have an error stack, would not output a warning message. Fixed.
    • Updated dependencies to their latest versions.

  • v1.2.4 (2016-03-18)

    • Improved colors option to support ANSI escape codes. (PR #1 by @msrose)

  • v1.2.2 (2016-02-27)

    • Added grunt, jasmine tests, etc...
    • Moved helper classes and utils to separate modules.

  • v1.2.0 (2016-02-26)

    • Moved the reporter to its own repo.
    • Code revisions and clean-up.

  • v1.1.3 (2015-07-05)

    • Expanded verbosity levels (0 to 4). Setting to 3 will not report disabled specs anymore while listing others. Set to 4 (default) for the most verbose report.
    • Updated dependencies to their latest versions.

  • v1.1.0 (2015-05-01)

    • Revised dependencies.
    • Code revisions and clean-up.

  • v1.0.1 (2015-04-27)

    • Changed the default value of activity option to false. This should not be enabled if your tests log extra data to console. Fixed activity output.

  • v1.0.0 (2015-04-21)

    • Progressive console output. Each spec result is now output at real-time as it's executed. This effectively helps tracking unhandled errors.
    • Fixed mis-handled nested suites (describe blocks). Each spec result and nested suite is now correctly output in relation to its parent test siute.
    • Highlighted file name, line and column numbers in stacks. Only effective if colors is enabled.
    • Fixed the stack-filter to support Windows file paths.
    • Improved option: cleanStack now also accepts a Number (integer) to determine the filter level. See documentation.
    • Added new option: listStyle. See documentation.
    • Improved option: verbosity (alias: verbose) now also accepts a Number (integer) to determine the verbosity level. See documentation.
    • Clickable file paths in error stacks (This is useful only if your terminal supports it. For example, CMD+Click will open the file and move the cursor to the target line in iTerm 2 for Mac, if configured.)
    • Added new option: activity. See documentation.
    • Updated dependencies to their latest versions.
