node package manager



Integrates standard into your mocha tests. This allows you to enforce a "one true" JavaScript coding style in your project via Mocha tests.



This offers a finer alternative to adding standard into package.json's scripts.test block.

  • Runs in the same node process as mocha, removing maybe 500ms of startup time.
  • Use mocha --watch to recheck for style failures. standard is used programatically, removing a huge overhead (around 1500ms) in re-running it repeatedly with --watch.
  • Painlessly integrate standard into your tests.

(Your speed gains may be a bit different from my Pentium II, of course.)


Install it:

npm install --save-dev mocha-standard standard

Then add this test file to your Mocha suite:

/* test/standard_test.js */
it('conforms to standard', require('mocha-standard'))

To configure what files to consume:

var standard = require('mocha-standard')
it('conforms to standard', standard.files([ 'index.js', 'test/*.js' ]))


To use semistandard instead, use:

npm install --save-dev mocha-standard semistandard
/* test/standard_test.js */
it('conforms to standard', require('mocha-standard/semistandard'))
