mocking for Titanium


mockti is a mocking framework for Titanium. It loads up a jsca description of the Titanium API and creates a Titanium object with all of the proper objects and methods for testing code. Every proxy is an emitter (as in Ti itself). Methods also emit an event function::name when invoked.

This is a continuation of my exploration of the testing of programs written for the Titanium framework. It's a Zombie.js style approach to the problem; rather than running inside of the emulators and simulating events, we instead just simulate the environment. This may prove useful for testing certain types of user interfaces and code. I've found it helpful for mocking requests for testing my network code.

Install it like this

$ npm i mockti

Then, use it like this

var xhr = Titanium.Network.createHTTPClient();
var view = Ti.UI.createView();

You'll probably want to require() some of the code in your Resources folder. Currently I have my project setup with a test folder which has a couple tests; these require code out of Resources after requiring mockti. Then, I attempt requests, make assertions, etc.

  1. The jsca file has type information. Add setters which assert types.
  2. Assert types of arguments.
