KATT (Klarna API Testing Tool) is an HTTP-based API testing tool for NodeJS


KATT (Klarna API Testing Tool) is an HTTP-based testing tool for Node.

Use for shooting HTTP requests in a sequential order and verifying the response. Any relevant difference between expected and actual responses will cause a failure.

The validator makes use of a few tags with special meaning:

Match anything (i.e. no real validation, only check existence).

Match nothing (i.e. no real validation, only check lack of existence)

Store value of the whole string (key must be unique within testcase)

Recall stored value.

The "{{_}}" tag can also be used as a JSON object's property in order to validate any other additional properties.

By default, the builtin validator will allow additional properties in an object structure, or additional items in an array structure. To counteract that default, one can do {..., "{{_}}": "{{unexpected}}"} or [..., "{{unexpected}}"], effectively making a rule that no properties/items are expected beyond the ones defined.
