karma-detect-browsers

Karma runner plugin for detecting all browsers installed on the current system.

karma-detect-browsers

Karma runner plugin for detecting all browsers installed on the current system. Adds all found browsers to the browser array in the karma config file.

The easiest way is to keep karma-detect-browsers as a devDependency in your package.json.

{
  "devDependencies": {
    "karma": "^0.12",
    "karma-detect-browsers": "^2.0"
  }
}

You can simply do it by:

npm install karma-detect-browsers --save-dev
  • add detectBrowsers as framework and plugin to your karma config file
  • add the karma browser plugins for all the browser installed on your system
  • add the karma browser plugins to the package.json file
// karma.conf.js 
module.exports = function(config) {
  config.set({
    frameworks: ['detectBrowsers'],
 
    plugins: [
      'karma-chrome-launcher',
      'karma-firefox-launcher',
      'karma-ie-launcher',
      'karma-safari-launcher',
      'karma-opera-launcher',
      'karma-phantomjs-launcher',
      'karma-detect-browsers'
    ]
  });
};
// karma.conf.js 
module.exports = function(config) {
  config.set({
    frameworks: ['detectBrowsers'],
 
    // configuration 
    detectBrowsers: {
      // enable/disable, default is true 
      enabled: true,
 
      // enable/disable phantomjs support, default is true 
      usePhantomJS: true,
 
      // post processing of browsers list 
      // here you can edit the list of browsers used by karma 
      postDetectionfunction(availableBrowser) {
        /* Karma configuration with custom launchers
          customLaunchers: {
            IE9: {
              base: 'IE',
              'x-ua-compatible': 'IE=EmulateIE9'
            }
          }
        */
 
          //Add IE Emulation 
          var result = availableBrowser;
 
          if (availableBrowser.indexOf('IE')>-1) {
            result.push('IE9');
          }
 
          //Remove PhantomJS if another browser has been detected 
          if (availableBrowser.length > 1 && availableBrowser.indexOf('PhantomJS')>-1) {
            var i = result.indexOf('PhantomJS');
 
            if (!== -1) {
              result.splice(i, 1);
            }
          }
 
          return result;
        }
    },
 
    plugins: [
      'karma-chrome-launcher',
      'karma-firefox-launcher',
      'karma-ie-launcher',
      'karma-safari-launcher',
      'karma-opera-launcher',
      'karma-phantomjs-launcher',
      'karma-detect-browsers'
    ]
  });
};

In lieu of a formal styleguide take care to maintain the existing coding style. Lint and test your code using grunt.

You can preview your changes by running:

grunt demo
  • Drop peerDependencies so that the user has full control which karma browser plugins are installed via npm
  • This is a breaking change since now you have to manually add the karma browser plugins to the package.json file of your project
  • Revert peerDependencies changes, since this would be a breaking change. Waiting for npm v3 final.
  • Move peerDependencies to dependencies in preparation of npm v3+
  • Use karma's logger instead of console.log to respect the log level set in the karma config file
  • PhantomJS was not used when there are no browsers installed in the system
  • add new parameter (postDetection) to post process browser list
  • add support for phantomjs, is enabled by default, can be disabled
  • only override browsers in config when a browser was found by the plugin
  • first release
