A simple mocha runner that includes chai, sinon, sinon-chai and chai-fuzzy and accepts a list of globs to run
# usually is enough to install it as a dev dependency since this is for testingnpm i --save-dev mocha-runner
`mocha-runner` is yet another mocha cli with includes sinon, mocha and chai ======================================================== Usage: mocha-runner [options] glob [glob1] [glob2]..[globN] ======================================================== Options: -u, --use-cache If true will filter the files returning only the ones that changed after the last run, if this is false the cache will be destroyed and created again the next time this flag is set to true. By default this is false -g, --grep String only run tests matching -f, --fgrep String only run tests matching -b, --bail fail on the first error -r, --reporter String Reporter, default to spec -t, --timeout Number mocha tests timeout -h, --help Show this help -v, --version Outputs the version number -q, --quiet Show only the summary info - default: false --colored-output Use colored output in logs --stack if true, uncaught errors will show the stack trace if available -c, --config String path to your mocha config. If none provided, it will first try to find a `./mocha.json` file in the current directory. If none found it will use the default ones. See mocha options here: http://mochajs.org/
From the command line
# or node node_modules/mocha-runner/bin/runner.js if installed as dev-dependencymocha-runner --config='./path-to-mocha-config.json' 'specs/**/*.js' 'another/directory/**/*.js'
"scripts":// simple example for running tests"test": "mocha-runner 'specs/**/*.js'"// use it with istanbul to generate nice coverage reports"coverage": "istanbul cover -x 'specs/**/*.js' ./bin/runner.js 'specs/**/*.js' html text-summary"// use the useCache option to only run the tests that changed"coverage-cache": "istanbul cover -x 'specs/**/*.js' ./bin/runner.js 'specs/**/*.js' html text-summary -- --useCache=true"// pair it with watch-spawn and execute the tests only on the specs that changed// or when the sources files change, this will save tons of time if running this on a project with several files// Or at least save some noise to focus only on the modified specs."watch": "npm run coverage && watch-spawn -p 'specs/**/*.js' -p 'bin/**/*.js' -p 'lib/**/*.js' npm run coverage-cache"
then you can do
npm run test # will execute the testsnpm run coverage # will generate a coverage reportnpm run coverage-cache # will execute only the test that changed. Coverage report is only of the changed filesnpm run watch # will watch for changes on the specified files and run
