tap-parser

parse the test anything protocol

example

var parser = require('tap-parser');
var p = parser(function (results) {
    console.dir(results);
});
 
process.stdin.pipe(p);

given some TAP-formatted input:

$ node test.js
TAP version 13
# beep
ok 1 should be equal
ok 2 should be equivalent
# boop
ok 3 should be equal
ok 4 (unnamed assert)
 
1..4
# tests 4
# pass  4
 
# ok

parse the output:

$ node test.js | node parse.js
{ ok: true,
  asserts: 
   [ { ok: true, number: 1, name: 'should be equal' },
     { ok: true, number: 2, name: 'should be equivalent' },
     { ok: true, number: 3, name: 'should be equal' },
     { ok: true, number: 4, name: '(unnamed assert)' } ],
  pass: 
   [ { ok: true, number: 1, name: 'should be equal' },
     { ok: true, number: 2, name: 'should be equivalent' },
     { ok: true, number: 3, name: 'should be equal' },
     { ok: true, number: 4, name: '(unnamed assert)' } ],
  fail: [],
  todo: [],
  errors: [],
  plan: { start: 1, end: 4 } }

usage

This package also has a tap-parser command.

usage: tap-parser OPTIONS
 
  Parse TAP from INPUT. If there are any failures, exits with
  a non-zero status code.
 
OPTIONS are:
 
  -i, --input    Read from INPUT. Default: stdin.
  -o, --output   Write to OUTPUT. Default: stdout.
  -r, --results  Print results as json. Otherwise pass INPUT
                 through to OUTPUT.
 
  -h, --help     Show this help message.
  -v, --version  Print the current version of tap-parser.
 

methods

var parser = require('tap-parser')

Return a writable stream p that emits parse events.

If cb is given it will listen for the 'results' event.

events

results.errors is an array containing any parse errors, such as out of order assertions or missing plans.

Every /^(not )?ok\b/ line will emit an 'assert' event.

Every assert object has these keys:

  • assert.ok - true if the assertion succeeded, false if failed
  • assert.number - the assertion number
  • assert.name - optional short description of the assertion

and may also have

  • assert.todo - optional description of why the assertion failure is not a problem.

When results are returned, each assert object will have been appended to the list asserts and one of (pass, fail, todo).

Every /^# (.+)/ line will emit the string contents of comment.

Every /^\d+\.\.\d+/ line emits a 'plan' event for the test numbers plan.start through plan.end, inclusive.

If the test is completely skipped the result will look like

{ ok: true,
  asserts: [],
  pass: [],
  fail: [],
  errors: [],
  plan: 
   { start: 1,
     end: 0,
     skip_all: true,
     skip_reason: 'This code has no seat belt' } }

A /^TAP version (\d+)/ line emits a 'version' event with a version number or string.

All other lines will trigger an 'extra' event with the line text.

install
