    A lightweight, drop-in alternative to mocha

    Mocha is a great unit test tool, but it can be rather heavy. It adds 12MB worth of dependencies, and debugging errors can be challenging because of how logging and error reporting work, and how it integrates with things like Chrome Developer Tools.

    This is minimal implementation of Mocha's BDD API. BDD-based tests (tests that use describe(), it(), before(), beforeEach(), etc) should work with no modification.

    The log output is slightly different than the original mocha to improve readability and error reporting.

    Also, this adds a --break feature (see below) that allows for setting on-the-fly debugging breakpoints.

    Installation

    npm i nocha
    

    Usage

    $ nocha test/foo.js test/bar.js
    

    flags

    The flags below refer to step #'s, which precede each task and suite title in console output. E.g. "1.3 Validates Email"'s step number is 1.3.

    --only=[step number]

    Run the named step, and only the named step.

    --break=[step number]

    Waits for debugger to connect then breaks immediately prior to running the designated step.

    ES6 module support

    Tests with the .mjs extension will be loaded as ES6 modules. These tests must explicitely import mocha functions as follows:

    import {describe, it, before, beforeEach, after, afterEach} from 'nocha';
    

    Debugging

    Install

    npm i nocha
