mocha-benchmark

Hacky mocha + benchmark js integration extracted from ICAL.js

Mocha + Benchmark integration

Designed as a simple wrapper around benchmark.js. The initial design in ICAL.js was intended to let us test multiple versions of ICAL.js under the same set of performance tests to ensure performance gains between versions.

/* we often use tdd mocha adapters so those are the defaults */
 
var perf = require('mocha-benchmark').create({
  Benchmark: Benchmark || require('benchmark')
  versions: [
    /* order can be important when we introduce test failing options */
    ['previous', libGlobal],
    ['latest', libGlobal]
  ],
  /* could be describe */
  suite: suite,
  /* or it */
  test: test,
});
 
// perf.suite only runs the last version (usually your latest) 
perf.suite('libGlobal', function(perflibGlobal) {
  perf.test('my lib should be fast', function() {
    libGlobal.doStuff();
  });
  
  // all tests inside compare run for each version 
  perf.compare(function(perflibGlobal) {
    perf.test('my lib should be faster', function() {
      // libGlobal will be previous then latest 
    });
  });
});
npm install .
