    karma-background

    Why?

    When using karma within gulp, if you want to programmatically call the karma runner while a server is already started, it ouputs all the logs twice. In grunt-karma they got around this by spawning the karma server as a background process.

    This module is not a gulp plugin, all it does is spawn karma in a background process in the same fashion as the grunt-karma plugin.

    example

    Since I wrote this specifically to be used with gulp, the following example is a gulpfile! You can also look at the gulpfile within this directory.

    var gulp = require('gulp');
    var karma = require('karma');
    var kbg = require('karma-background');
    var configFile = __dirname + '/karma.conf.js';
     
    // do a single run per usual
    gulp.task('karma', function (done) {
      new karma.Server({
        configFile: karmaPath,
        singleRun: true
      }, done).start();
    });
     
    // call the runner
    gulp.task('karma:run', function (done) {
      karma.runner.run({
        configFile: configFile
      }, done);
    });
     
    // create a watch task that launches a background process
    gulp.task('watch', function () {
      kbg({ configFile: configFile });
      gulp.watch('./**.js', ['karma:run']);
    });
