Asynchronous BDD & continuous integration for node.js
There are two reasons why we might want asynchronous testing. The first, and obvious reason is that node.js is asynchronous, and therefore our tests need to be. The second reason is to make test suites which target I/O libraries run much faster.
Vows is an experiment in making this possible, while adding a minimum of overhead.

Code coverage reporting is available if instrumented code is detected. Currently only instrumentation via node-jscoverage is supported. When instrumented code is detected and coverage reporting is enabled using any of the
--cover-json options a code coverage map is generated.
node-jscoverage is a binary package that needs to be compiled from source:
$ git clone https://github.com/visionmedia/node-jscoverage.git$ cd node-jscoverage/$ ./configurechecking
instrumenting with jscoverage
$ jscoverage myfile.js myfile-instrumented.js
$ npm install vows
Head over to http://vowsjs.org
$ npm test
...and many others
