    Node Test Helper

    This project pulls out the node helper module from the Node-RED core so that it can used for node contributors.

    For examples on how to use this helper, see the Node-RED core node test code and some node .js files supplied in the test/examples folder.

    Adding to node project

    To add to your node project test dependencies:

    npm install node-red-test-helper --save-dev
    

    Inside your node test code:

    var helper = require('node-red-test-helper');

    Testing the helper

    npm run test
    

    This runs tests on a snapshot of some of the core nodes' Javascript files to ensure the helper works.

    Example test

    This is an example test for testing the lower-case node in the Node-RED documentation.

    var should = require("should");
    var helper = require("node-red-contrib-test-helper");
    var lowerNode = require("../lower-case.js");
     
    describe('lower-case Node', function () {
     
      afterEach(function () {
        helper.unload();
      });
     
      it('should be loaded', function (done) {
        var flow = [{ id: "n1", type: "lower-case", name: "lower-case" }];
        helper.load(lowerNode, flow, function () {
          var n1 = helper.getNode("n1");
          n1.should.have.property('name', 'lower-case');
          done();
        });
      });
     
      it('should make payload lower case', function (done) {
        var flow = [
          { id: "n1", type: "lower-case", name: "lower-case",wires:[["n2"]] },
          { id: "n2", type: "helper" }
        ];
        helper.load(lowerNode, flow, function () {
          var n2 = helper.getNode("n2");
          var n1 = helper.getNode("n1");
          n2.on("input", function (msg) {
            msg.should.have.property('payload', 'uppercase');
            done();
          });
          n1.receive({ payload: "UpperCase" });
        });
      });
    });

    API

    load(testNode, testFlows, testCredentials, cb)

    Load the test node, flows and credentials, creates a 'helper' node.

    unload()

    Return promise to stop all flows, clean up test runtime and log spy.

    getNode(id)

    Get the node from the runtime.

    credentials

    TODO

    clearFlows()

    Calls RED.flows.stopFlows() to stop all flows.

    request()

    Create http (supertest) request to the editor/admin url.

    Example:

        helper.request().post('/inject/invalid').expect(404).end(done);

    startServer(done)

    Start a Node-RED test server; done() when complete.

    stopServer(done)

    Stop server. Generally called after unload() complete

    url()

    Return the URL of the helper server.

    log()

    Return a spy on the logs to look for events from the node under test. For example:

    var logEvents = helper.log().args.filter(function(evt {
        return evt[0].type == "batch";
    });
