Testing

Note: You need to have Chrome installed in order to run tests via Karma.

  • npm run test:browser Runs tests in Chrome
  • npm run test:node Runs tests in node.js
  • npm run test:dev Runs developer tests (useful for testing functionality)
  • npm run test:travis Runs browser tests that are executed by travis

If you want to mock http responses, it is possible to use external implementation of configurable Http Service as a part of the delivery client configuration.
