Reporters for the Jasmine BDD Framework

This branch is for Jasmine 2.x. Switch to the 1.x branch.

Jasmine Reporters

Jasmine Reporters is a collection of javascript jasmine.Reporter classes that can be used with the JasmineBDD testing framework.

Included reporters:

  • JUnitXmlReporter - Report test results to a file in JUnit XML Report format.
  • NUnitXmlReporter - Report test results to a file in NUnit XML Report format.
  • TapReporter - Test Anything Protocol, report tests results to console.
  • TeamCityReporter - Basic reporter that outputs spec results to for the Teamcity build system.
  • TerminalReporter - Logs to a terminal (including colors) with variable verbosity.

Should work with all modern versions of Phantom JS, and has been tested with PhantomJS 1.4.6 through 1.9.6 on Mac OS X. If you find issues with a particular version, please consider creating a pull request.

The reporters also work in Node.js, and most can be used in combination with jasmine-node. Make sure to use the correct combination of jasmine-reporters and jasmine-node, as both projects have different versions / branches for Jasmine1.x vs Jasmine2.x support.

Basic Usage

When used for in-browser tests, the reporters are registered on a jasmineReporters object in the global scope (i.e. window.jasmineReporters).

var junitReporter = new jasmineReporters.JUnitXmlReporter({
    savePath: '..',
    consolidateAll: false

In order to write files to the local filesystem for in-browser tests, the reporters will attempt to use PhantomJS to create the files. A special method __phantom_writeFile is injected by the included phantomjs.runner.sh script.

It is strongly recommended to use the provided script to run your test suite using PhantomJS. If you want to use your own PhantomJS runner, you will need to inject a __phantom_writeFile method, and also take care to correctly determine when all results have been reported.

You can use the included PhantomJS test runner to run any of the included examples.

bin/phantomjs.runner.sh test/tap_reporter.html
bin/phantomjs.runner.sh test/junit_xml_reporter.html

In Node.js, jasmine-reporters exports an object with all the reporters which you can use however you like.

var reporters = require('jasmine-reporters');
var junitReporter = new reporters.JUnitXmlReporter({
    savePath: __dirname,
    consolidateAll: false

An example for each reporter is available in the test directory.

Changes in jasmine-reporters@2.0

jasmine-reporters is built for Jasmine 2.x. If you are still using Jasmine 1.x, please use the correct tag / branch / npm version:

  • bower: bower install jasmine-reporters#^1.0.0
  • Node.js: npm install jasmine-reporters@^1.0.0
  • git submodule: git submodule add -b jasmine1.x git@github.com:larrymyers/jasmine-reporters.git jasmine-reporters
  • or use any of the 1.* tags
  • reporters are no longer registered on the global jasmine object
    • 1.x: new jasmine.JUnitXmlReporter( /* ... */ );
    • 2.x: new jasmineReporters.JUnitXmlReporter( /* ... */ );
  • configurable reporters no longer use positional arguments
    • 1.x: new jasmine.JUnitXmlReporter('testresults', true, true, 'junit-', true);
    • 2.x: new jasmineReporters.JUnitXmlReporter({savePath:'testresults', filePrefix: 'junit-', consolidateAll:true});


As of Protractor 1.6.0, protractor supports Jasmine 2 by specifying framework: "jasmine2" in your protractor.conf file.

First, install a Jasmine 2.x-compatible of jasmine-reporters:

npm install --save-dev jasmine-reporters@^2.0.0

Then set everything up inside your protractor.conf:

framework: 'jasmine2',
onPreparefunction() {
    var jasmineReporters = require('jasmine-reporters');
    jasmine.getEnv().addReporter(new jasmineReporters.JUnitXmlReporter({
        consolidateAll: true,
        savePath: 'testresults',
        filePrefix: 'xmloutput'

If you run a multiCapabilities setup you can reflect this in your test results by using the option modifySuiteName. This enables you to have distinct suite names per capability.

multiCapabilities: [
    {browserName: 'firefox'},
    {browserName: 'chrome'}
framework: 'jasmine2',
onPreparefunction() {
    var jasmineReporters = require('jasmine-reporters');
    // returning the promise makes protractor wait for the reporter config before executing tests 
    return browser.getProcessedConfig().then(function(config) {
        // you could use other properties here if you want, such as platform and version 
        var browserName = config.capabilities.browserName;
        var junitReporter = new jasmineReporters.JUnitXmlReporter({
            consolidateAll: true,
            savePath: 'testresults',
            // this will produce distinct xml files for each capability 
            filePrefix: browserName + ‘-xmloutput’,
            modifySuiteNamefunction(generatedSuiteNamesuite) {
                // this will produce distinct suite names for each capability, 
                // e.g. ‘firefox.login tests’ and ‘chrome.login tests’ 
                return browserName + ‘.’ + generatedSuiteName;
