Karma Plugin for Snapshot Testing with Mocha

Snapshot Format

Snapshot can be stored in different formats. Right now there are two formats supported: md and indented-md.

Markdown Format

This format is preferred when you specify language for code blocks in an assertion plugin. With this format, code editors will automatically highlight syntax of code blocks.

# `src/html.js`
 
## `Sub Suite`
 
####   `HTML Snapshot`
 
```html
<div>
  <span />
</div>
```

Indented Markdown Format

# `src/html.js`
 
## `Sub Suite`
 
####   `HTML Snapshot`
 
    <div>
      <span />
    </div>

Snapshot File Path

Snapshot file path is extracted from the name of the root suit cases and stored alongside with a tested files in a __snapshots__ directory.

Snapshot file path can be changed by providing a custom pathResolver in snapshot config.

Usage Example

$ npm install karma karma-webpack karma-sourcemap-loader karma-snapshot karma-mocha \
              karma-mocha-snapshot karma-mocha-reporter karma-chrome-launcher mocha \
              chai chai-karma-snapshot webpack --save-dev

// karma.conf.js
const webpack = require("webpack");
 
module.exports = function (config) {
  config.set({
    browsers: ["ChromeHeadless"],
    frameworks: ["mocha", "snapshot", "mocha-snapshot"],
    reporters: ["mocha"],
    preprocessors: {
      "**/__snapshots__/**/*.md": ["snapshot"],
      "__tests__/index.js": ["webpack", "sourcemap"]
    },
    files: [
      "**/__snapshots__/**/*.md",
      "__tests__/index.js"

    webpackMiddleware: {
      stats: "errors-only",
      noInfo: true
    },
 
    snapshot: {
      update: !!process.env.UPDATE,
    },
 
    mochaReporter: {
      showDiff: true,

    client: {
      mocha: {
        reporter: "html",
        ui: "bdd",
      }
    },

Source file:

// src/index.js
 
export function test() {
  return "Snapshot Test";
}

Test file:

// __tests__/index.js
import { use, expect } from "chai";
import { matchSnapshot } from "chai-karma-snapshot";
import { test } from "../src/index.js";
use(matchSnapshot);
 
describe("src/index.js", () => {
  it("check snapshot", () => {
