Just a bit better spec reporter for Mocha


Originally it was fork for mocha own spec reporter, but it is very inconvenient to use.

Why i made fork:

  • It is possible to hide/show any part of report
  • It is possible to see where error happen - not only stack line but also relevant file content
  • It supports source maps
  • It does not show useless stack lines

It is possible to hide additional stack traces via env variable MOCHA_REPORTER_STACK_EXCLUDE as glob string.

**/yadda/lib/** - will hide all of the yadda stack traces

It is possible to hide some parts of output via env variable MOCHA_REPORTER_OPTS.

hide-titles - will hide execution tests/suites titles

hide-stats - will hide stat

show-back-order - will show fails in back order

Also it is possible to set this parameters with mocha command line option --reporter-options, e.g:

mocha -R ../../../ --reporter-options hide-stats=true,hide-titles=true test.js

You need to set options in such format A=B,C=D.... Options are:

hide-titles accepted values true|false - show/hide executed test/suites titles (default false)

hide-stats accepted values true|false - show/hide executed tests statistic (default false)

show-back-order accepted values true|false - test fails shown in back order, so first fail will be at the bottom (default true)

stack-exclude any glob string, used to match stack trace files for exclude

show-file-content it can be js or js+sm or sm, meaning what to show if available (sm - source-mapped files, js - actual files) by default it is sm

How to use

npm install --save-dev mocha-better-spec-reporter
mocha --reporter mocha-better-spec-reporter ... # and other options there
mocha -R mocha-better-spec-reporter --reporter-options hide-stats=true,hide-titles=true ...
