A pleasant GUI interface for Mocha
If you don't love:
mocha -w -g "<blah>"every time you want to change which test set is run
You might like MochaHQ
It purposes to beautify and speed up the running of select mocha tests.
MochaHQ, when run in your project directory, will read your mocha.opts file, and automatically read all mocha tests specified therein.
Those tests will be listed on the left sidebar, and allow you to easily run any of your suites, or individual tests.
MochaHQ runs mocha in the background in
watch mode, so your tests should automatically re-run when
you change a file. And the results should be sent to your browser right away.
When you change test suites, (or change the match pattern by hand), the background Mocha process will be terminated, and a new process will be launched with the new pattern.
npm install -g mochahq
cd <your project directory>; mochahq
MochaHQ will begin running, and the address on which it's serving will be printed to the console.
If you want to change the port MochaHQ uses, just set the
PORT environment variable:
PORT=8780 cd <your project directory>; mochahq
The following keybindings are available:
h (or left arrow) - Display the parent test and its children in the sidebarj (or down arrow) - Highlight the next test in the sidebark (or up arrow) - Highlight the previous test in the sidebarl (or right arrow) - Display the children of the highlighted test in the sidebar<enter> - Run the test that's highlighted in the sidebarshift-j : Scroll the test results downshift-k : Scroll the test results up
MochaHQ is currently only supported in Chrome. Pull requests for support in other browsers are very welcome.
