report-viewer

0.3.3 • Public • Published

report-viewer

A cli for piping a unit test result directly into your browser. Currently only works with mocha and the spec reporter.

Each time a test result is piped into stdio, the browser view will be updated. Uses socket.io for best experience.

No livereload needed. Errors will be shown prominently on top.

The console output will be visible in the side of the browser

Install

npm install report-viewer
 

Usage

Best used with mocha:

mocha --watch 2>&1 | report-viewer --opener

or

report-viewer --opener 'mocha --watch'

Both will start a webserver (localhost:9999) to view current testresults. The later one will be able to restart mocha through the webview.

Available options:

-h, --help                output usage information
-V, --version             output the version number
--port <n>                port
--opener                  opens a browser
--viewer <(module-)name>  loades a specific viewer

From node

runner = require("report-viewer")
mocha = require.resolve("mocha")+"/bin/mocha"
path = require("path")
specs = path.resolve(__dirname'./test')
 
runner({
  port: process.env.PORT# Heroku uses dynamic port assignment 
  args: mocha + ' ' + specs
})

Views

You can use your own view by cloning the report-viewer-default repository, rename and change it. both should work:

mocha --watch 2>&1 | report-viewer --viewer your-view
mocha --watch 2>&1 | report-viewer --viewer /path/to/your-view

If you publish your work, let me know, I will link it up
