Usage

One case one value

var test = require('mocha-cases');
 
var cases = [{
  name: 'should {value.text} equal to {expected.text}', // name of the test,
                                                        //   a string, supports nested value interpolation
                                                        //   or a function, takes test value, expected value and options, and returns a string
  value: { text: 'input value' },                       // input value
  expected: { text: 'expected output value' },          // expected output value
  error: RangeError,                                    // expected error value, instance or class
  runner: function (value, options) {},                 // runner specific to this case
  options: {},                                          // options specific to this case
  only: false,                                          // run this case only?
  skip: false,                                          // skip this case?
  errback: false                                        // is the runner using an errback (callback)?
}, {
  name: 'case 2...',
  ...
}];
 
var options = {
  errback: true,                                        // is all test defaults to errback?
  prefix: ''                                             // prefix to test names
};
 
function runner(value, options, done) {                 // errback runner takes a `done` callback
  setTimeout(function () {
    done(null, 'expected output value');
  }, 10);
}
 
describe('module: mocha-cases', function () {
  describe('feature: cases', function () {
    test(cases, runner, options);
  });
});

Default pass through runner will be used if no runner provided at all.

One case vs. multiple values vs. one expected

You can use an array of values with a single expected value:

describe('prime number', function () {
  test({
    name: 'given prime number {value}, isPrime() returns true',
    values: [2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13],
    expected: true
  }, isPrime);
});

One case vs. multiple values vs. multiple expected

You can use an array of values and an array of expected values, to pair multiple given values and expected values:

describe('prime number', function () {
  test({
    name: 'given prime number {value}, isPrime() returns true, false otherwise',
    values:   [2,    3,    4,     5,    6,     7,    8,     9],
    expected: [true, true, false, true, false, true, false, false],
    runner: isPrime
  });
});

Or, you can use cases to specify multiple cases:

describe('prime number', function () {
  test({
    name: 'isPrime({value}) should be {expected}',
    cases: [{
      value: 2,
      expected: true
    }, {
      value: 3,
      expected: true
    }, {
      value: 4,
      expected: false
    }, {
      value: 5,
      expected: true
    }, {
      value: 6,
      expected: false
    }, {
      value: 7,
      expected: true
    }, {
      value: 8,
      expected: false
    }, {
      value: 9,
      expected: false
    }],
    runner: isPrime
  });
});

If your values are simple enougth, you may want to simplify them with a pair of value / expected value for each case:

describe('prime number', function () {
  test({
    name: 'isPrime({value}) should be {expected}',
    cases: [
      [2, true],
      [3, true],
      [4, false],
      [5, true],
      [6, false],
      [7, true],
      [8, false],
      [9, false]
    ],
    runner: isPrime
  });
});
