    purple-tape

    Run tests with an api similar to tape but utilizing async/await.

    Build master Publish to nom npm version

    Usage

    Same as tape, except that the test-functions can be asynchronous. t.plan() and t.end() are thus not needed and not supported.

    Also provides

    • test.beforeEach( async (t) => { ... }) which can be used to run some code before each test-case

    • test.afterEach( async (t) => { ... }) which can be used to run some code after each test-case.

    • test.beforeAll( function * (t) { ... }) which can be used to run some code before all test-cases.

    • test.afterAll( function * (t) { ... }) which can be used to run some code after all test-cases.

    The reason for having the before/afterEach and before/afterAll functions is to make it possible to run a single test-case with test.only() and to make the intention of the test-code clearer.

    Note that purple-tape does not contain any test-runner. To execute a test-file, simply run it with node. To execute several test-files, the tape-documentation recommends using tape tests/**/*.js, however this means that all test-files run in the same instance of node which may provide surprising results if you for example mock a module in one of your tests. purple-tape does not support running several test-files with the tape runner. Instead, I recommend using multi-tape. This has the additional benefit that it can run several test-files in parallel.

    Example

    import { test } from 'purple-tape'
    
    test.beforeAll(async (t) => {
        t.ok(await Promise.resolve(true), 'shall run beforeAll')
    })
    
    test.afterAll(async (t) => {
        t.ok(await Promise.resolve(true), 'shall run afterAll')
    })
    
    test.beforeEach(async (t) => {
        t.ok(await Promise.resolve(true), 'shall run beforeEach')
    })
    
    test.afterEach(async (t) => {
        t.ok(await Promise.resolve(true), 'shall run afterEach')
    })
    
    test('run test 1', async (t) => {
        t.ok(await Promise.resolve(true), 'shall await results')
    })
    
    test('run test 2', async (t) => {
        t.ok(await Promise.resolve(true), 'shall await results')
    })

    will provide the following output:

    TAP version 13
    
    # beforeAll
    ok 1 - shall run beforeAll
    
    # beforeEach run test 1
    ok 2 - shall run beforeEach
    
    # run test 1
    ok 3 - shall await results
    
    # afterEach run test 1
    ok 4 - shall run afterEach
    
    # beforeEach run test 2
    ok 5 - shall run beforeEach
    
    # run test 2
    ok 6 - shall await results
    
    # afterEach run test 2
    ok 7 - shall run afterEach
    
    # afterAll
    ok 8 - shall run afterAll
    
    1..8
    # tests 8
    # pass  8
    

    tryUntil

    The t-object contains a method called tryUntil that can be used to try an operation over and over again until it succeeds or a timeout is reached.

    await t.tryUntil(
        async () => t.equal(await dut.status(), 'ok', 'shall return status ok'),
        30_000
    )
    

    The above example will run await dut.status() over and over again until it returns ok or until 30 seconds have passed. The test-output will only contain the output of the last invocation of the function, i.e. either

    # ok 1 shall return status ok
    

    or

    # not ok 1 shall return status ok
    ...
    

    The first parameter for the tryUntil method is the function that shall be run. The test is regarded as a success if it runs at least one assertion method (ok, equal, pass etc) and all assertion methods return an ok status.

    The tryUntil method passes a single parameter to the function which is the t-object itself. This means that the following code has the exact same result as the previous example:

    await t.tryUntil(
        async (t2) => t2.equal(await dut.status(), 'ok', 'shall return status ok'),
        30_000
    )
    

    The tryUntil method takes a third, optional argument which is the interval. tryUntil will wait this many milliseconds between each invocation of the test-function. If the interval is omitted, it defaults to the interval divided by 30, but at least 100 ms and at most 5 seconds.

    If the function throws an error, that invocation of the function is considered as failed. If an error is thrown in the last invocation of the function, the error will be reported and tryUntil will have failed.

    If the tryUntil check fails, it will abort the current test().

    passWhile

    The passWhile method works the same way as the tryUntil method, but for passWhile, the expectation is that the tests in the function shall pass every time the function is called. The promise returned by passWhile resolves after the timeout has passed or the tests in the function fails, whichever happens first.

    In the following example, the return value of dut.status will be checked multiple times during 30 seconds and it must return 'ok' every time in order for the test to pass.

    await t.passWhile(
        async () => t.equal(await dut.status(), 'ok', 'shall return status ok'),
        30_000
    )
    

    If the function throws an error, that invocation of the function is considered as failed and passWhile will fail, but the test will not be aborted.

    Generating junit xml output

    To generate junit xml according to https://llg.cubic.org/docs/junit/, set the environment variable PT_XUNIT_FILE to the output filename.

    The name property for the testsuites and testsuite tags is the basename of the testfile. To use another name, set PT_XUNIT_NAME.

    Note that the junit output only lists all test()-calls and the last error from them (if any). It does not include the result from each individual assertion or the console output from the test.
