Meteor Desktop test suite

Few utils to ease out functional testing of Meteor Desktop modules/plugins. Take a look at the examples at the bottom of this readme to actually see how you can use this.

createTestApp(installPath, pluginName)

Creates a test app with plugin you are testing included. Plugin is installed by npm.

/**
 * @param {string} installPath - path at which to install the app
 * @param {string} pluginName  - name of the npm package (plugin) you are testing
 * @returns {Promise} 
 */

constructPlugin(app, log, app, appSettings, eventsBus, modules, settings, Module)

It is instantiating your plugin. You can supply mocks for any params your plugin would normally receive from the skeleton app. Pass undefined if your plugin does not use certain param or if you want to use some defaults provided by this test suite. Check here to see what is passed by default.

fireEventsBusEvent(app, eventToFire, ...eventArgs)

Fires an event on the events bus, so you can simulate for example a system event on which you plugin is listening.

/**
 * @param {Object} app         - app ref from Spectron
 * @param {string} eventToFire - name of the event to fire
 * @param {...*}   eventArgs   - arguments to pass with the event
 * @returns {Promise} 
 */

send(app, module, event, ...args)

Sends an IPC event to your module. Equivalent of Desktop.send.

/**
 * @param {Object} app    - app ref from Spectron
 * @param {string} module - module name your plugin is registering
 * @param {string} event  - event from your module
 * @param {...*}   args   - array of arguments to pass to ipc.send
 * @returns {Promise} 
 */

fetch(app, module, event, ...args)

Fetches some data from main process by sending an IPC event and waiting for the response. Equivalent of Desktop.fetch. Promise will resolve to an array with payload that came with the response.

/**
 * @param {Object} app    - app ref from Spectron
 * @param {string} module - module name your plugin is registering
 * @param {string} event  - event from your module
 * @param {...*}   args   - array of arguments to pass to ipc.send
 * @return {Promise} 
 */

fireEventsBusEventAndWaitForAnother(app, eventToFire, eventToListenFor, ...eventArgs)

Fires an event on the events bus and then waits for an another event to be emitted. Useful for example when your plugin is doing some stuff on afterLoading event and signalizes readiness via another event.

/**
 * @param {Object} app              - app ref from Spectron
 * @param {string} eventToFire      - name of the event to fire
 * @param {string} eventToListenFor - event to listen for on the events bus
 * @param {...*}   eventArgs        - arguments to pass with the event
 * @return {Promise} 
 */

sendIpc(app, ...args)

Sends an IPC message to the main process.

/**
 * @param {Object} app - the app ref from Spectron
 * @param {...*}  args - array of arguments to pass to ipc.send
 * @returns {Promise} 
 */

sendIpcSync(app, ...args)

Same as above but sync. However also returns a Promise as it is transferred through chromedriver.

sendIpcAndWaitForResponse(app, eventToSend, eventToListenFor, ...eventArgs)

Sends an IPC event and waits for an another IPC event to come.

/**
 * @param {Object} app              - app ref from Spectron
 * @param {string} eventToSend      - name of the ipc event to send
 * @param {string} eventToListenFor - ipc event to listen for
 * @param {...*}   eventArgs        - arguments to pass with the event
 * @returns {Promise} 
 */

emitWindowCreated(app)

Makes the app emit windowCreated event.

/**
 * @param {Object} app - the app ref from Spectron
 * @returns {Promise} 
 */

class Logger(show, showErrors)

Fake logger that eventually can write the logs to the console. You can set show to false and showErrors to true to only see errors passed to it.

Examples

An example of usage in tests is here meteor-desktop-splash-screen and here meteor-desktop-localstorage.
