    Sequential scenarios for Mocha

    Dependencies Dev dependencies

    Global step() function, as a drop-in replacement for it(). Any failing step will abort the parent describe immediately. This is handy for BDD-like scenarios, or smoke tests that need to run through specific steps.

    Setup

    npm install mocha-steps --save-dev

    Then simply run mocha with --require mocha-steps.

    Example

    describe('my smoke test', function() {
     
      step('login', function() {
      });
     
      step('buy an item', function() {
        throw new Error('failed');
      });
     
      step('check my balance', function() {
      });
     
      xstep('temporarily ignored', function() {
      });
     
    });
    • With the standard it()
    my smoke test
       ✓ login
       ✗ buy an item
       ✓ check my balance
       - temporarily ignored
    
    • Using step()
    my smoke test
       ✓ login
       ✗ buy an item
       - check my balance
       - temporarily ignored
    

    Notes

    • Unlike Mocha's --bail option, the rest of the test suite will run normally.
    • step() works with synchronous, async, event-based and promise tests.

    When submitting a PR, please run ./test.sh and implement new test cases if required.
