node-fixtures

Fixtures

Tests with fixtures data as JSON.

Installation

Install via npm:

$ npm install node-fixtures

Usage

The project will look for a directory named fixtures which must be child of your test directory in order to load all the fixtures (*.js or *.json files):

File: test\fixtures\users.json
    {
        "dearwish": {
            "name": "David",
            "gender": "male"
        },
        "innaro": {
            "name": "Inna",
            "gender": "female"
        }
  }
File: test\fixtures\relations.js
    [{
        "rel": "loves",
        "from": "dearwish",
        "to": "innaro"
    },{
        "rel": "wife",
        "from": "dearwish",
        "to": "innaro"
    },{
        "rel": "husband",
        "from": "innaro",
        "to": "dearwish"
    }]
Access fixtures depending on the name you gave to your fixtures files.
    var fx = require('node-fixtures');
 
    fx.users.dearwish.name;  // => "David" 
    fx.relations[0].rel;     // => "loves" 
    fx.users.innaro.name;    // => "Inna" 
Reset the fixtures on either setup or teardown when the fixtures were modified on tests:
    fx.reset();
